Built in 1887, Barony House has been lovingly decorated by Susan’s own hand, in honour of her famous ancestor – John Ruskin. John Ruskin, with Turner were pioneers of the arts and crafts movement where Susan has taken inspiration for some of her designs. Susan hand-made the bed heads for all the rooms and designed and hand painted a frieze in some of the rooms, sympathetic to the arts and crafts era. There is common lounge access and an Honesty Bar set in a traditional club room design. A flat-screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities are provided in each of Barony House's light and airy rooms, all designed to a high standard. Toiletries and a hairdryer are also included.
