There’s a unique and intriguing feel to this b&b, which manages to combine the atmosphere of an historic family home (the owners used to live here) with labyrinthine design and two separate staircases, with a slightly exotic, artistic look full of surprises, starting from reception where an intricately carved wooden door from Thailand leads to an easy luggage room.

Black-and-white framed photos feature in both the bedrooms and shared regions including prints of Irving Penn’s extensive 1950s Small Trades series and historical shots of Ravenna.
