Kundaly is positioned at the far end of the top floor, surveying Winder Fell. It’s named after a tea-planters’ club in the emerald hills of Munnar in Kerala, where owner Graham grew up. The room is decorated in soft greens, pale gold and muted reds, with a double-upholstered Corbeille bed and an antique chaise longue plucked from a Mumbai market. Spy on the night sky from the bath tub, or watch the sun rise over the hills in the bedroom. Kundaly has a TV, Roberts radio and free WiFi.

The B&B’s largest double room has lashings of light and a door that opens onto a covered porch, where guests can sit and enjoy the garden. In honour of its southerly aspect, the room is decorated with splashes of sky-blue, sunshine-yellow and gold. The bedroom has a super-king Hypnos bed with an Orthos cashmere mattress that regulates your temperature while you sleep (it won’t make you tea in the morning, mind, but the owners will). The bathroom has a bath tub and a shower for your ablutions. This room takes its name from Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce tea.
