Harpers House Guesthouse

The iconic blue exterior houses four Ground Floor bedrooms, five First Floor bedrooms, four shared bathrooms, a communal sitting room, library, kitchen and outside sitting area. Large groups are invited to rent the entire house, accommodating up to 19 guests, subject to availability. Most of the original features are still in place, such as the high Victorian pressed ceilings, antique fireplaces and Oregon Pine floors.

Each room looks as if it could feature in a modern interior design magazine, complete with designer chairs, delicious monsters and vibrant African-pattern throw pillows. Though affordable, this accommodation includes everything you need for a comfortable stay, from complimentary Wi-Fi to a Bluetooth music player in each room.
