The British Sea Power Room
Our guest room is very spacious with lots of storage. It features a king-size pocket sprung bed that always gets rave reviews and a sweet little two seater sofa.
The en-suite is decorated in grey porcelain tiles and has a large walk-in rain shower, a basin with illuminated mirror and a W.C. It also benefits from lots of natural light.
The room is named after the Cumbrian rock band British Sea Power who have been playing together since the year 2000.
We’d describe them as an ‘indie rock’ band with ‘post-punk’ and ‘krautrock’ influences. But in some ways they defy description. They don’t sing about the usual stuff bands sing about, but find inspiration from such diverse sources as a collapsing Antarctic Ice Shelf, the assassination of SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich and the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky .
If we were to suggest a user-friendly entry point to their work, we’d plump for the mostly instrumental soundtrack album they made to accompany the 1934 film Man Of Aran. It’s stirring stuff.
