Henry John Kingsford was a carpenter who fitted out the bar in 1887. We know this because he left a bit of wood with his name and date on it in a void behind some panelling. It is written on the same wood in which the cabin is panelled, in a beautiful copperplate hand. Kingsford is small, it’s compact and bijou. If you like that sort of thing it’s perfect. However if you’re oversize and like swinging cats please chose another room. No sea view without a periscope. Includes an en-suite bathroom, hairdryer, tea/coffee facilities, TV, free WiFi and comfortable bedding.
