Named after the pink Queen Elizabeth Rose, the Queen Elizabeth Suite is a deluxe, air conditioned suite that opens directly onto our quiet large, private garden where we have a large number of rose bushes, and abundant birdlife.
The ceilings of this suite are of Spanish reed and are tied in the traditional manner. The beams are local Pine.
The king-size bed was made by the first owner of The Hideaway Adin Greaves from Canary Pine to his own design, as are the side tables and lamps. The mattress was custom made for us by the School for the Blind in Worcester.
The sleeper couch (day bed) is another one of Adin Greaves’ carpentry originals and is made from indigenous woods; namely Black Ironwood, Stinkwood, Yellowwood and Leadwood. To convert the couch into a bed, the backrest is simply lifted out.
The cupboard and dressing table are early 20th Century oak pieces that for many years were resident in Silverhurst, Constantia, and were inherited by Adin Greaves from his mother. On being restored they were found to have been painted green on top of white on top of a dark stain.
The windows are made from Blackwood in the traditional Victorian style.
The room is en-suite with a bath and walk-in shower.
