The Woolner Suite

The Woolner suite is a wonderfully spacious room, with a superking sleigh bed and amazing panoramic views over the High Weald. The room has its own seating area with a comfortable leather sofa (which can be turned into a bed to accommodate a family) and winged arm chair. The luxury bathroom has a bath and a large walk-in shower. This is the ultimate room for that special stay.

The Woolner suite is named after one of the families that lived in the house. The sisters Amy and Phyllis moved into Boreham House in 1914. They were the daughters of Thomas Woolner RA (1825-1892), the renowned sculptor and poet. He was the only sculptor to be a founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Amy wrote a biography of her father and Phyllis was an artist. Their brother, Hugh, had been a passenger on the Titanic and was saved by the Carpathia. They were the first people in the house to have a telephone connected!
