The quirky features of the Doc Martin room, with its coastal-inspired interiors, including a wall of nautical mirrors and large cushioned window seat, make it our favourite. We love the nooks and crannies, as well as traditional features such as low exposed beams, complemented by wingback chairs and large comfy beds.
