This bedroom is tucked away in a peaceful corner of the house with beautiful views of the gardens below. The bed was made in 1923 using posts (from c.1760) found in the brewhouse.
It is popular with house guests and it is part of a suite with its own dressing-room and bathroom. The name of the bedroom comes from the silk bed-spread that has traditionally been used here.
The paintings are nearly all of landscapes, which are hung in Sunderland frames designed by Robert Spencer, Earl of Sunderland, in the 17th century. Most of the pictures are from the Anglo-Dutch school of the late 17th century.
