The Kersbrook is a grade II listed building originally built in 1780. As such an enormous amount of maintenance work has to be continually done to keep the building up to standard and up to date with the latest government regulations for public accommodation.
In the spring of 2008 the re-thatching of the west roof of the Kersbrook enabled us to rejuvenate that end of the building. The project included a completely new roof with trusses, fire boarding, three new conservation roof-lights and reappointing the three bedrooms underneath that end of the building. Formerly an old store room, the space immediately under the roof at first floor level has been sympathetically restored to form the “Studio Room”.
This large ensuite double room has a large 25 m2 floor area and much character being set under the pitch of the thatch roof with three conservation roof lights which look towards the sea. The room has been comfortably furnished in a modern style with double bed and benefits from a sofa seating area with views back across the garden through the half stable door which provides access via a wrought iron spiral staircase from the garden patio. The whole has been sympathetically built in keeping with the character of the property and is quite private from the rest of the house.
Although the spiral staircase is of a solid wide construction and has passed all safety standards we discourage elderly or frail people using this room and do not allow children to share this room with parents.
