books and movie library

Sunnymead houses an eclectic collection of books and films. Guests are more than welcome to borrow both for the duration of their stay. The books range from novellas published in the 1920s to the latest in escapist literature. There is also more serious stuff should guests wish to read books of an "improving nature".

The films on offer include Bollywood Masala, Fellini and Noir, and the TV room offers space for those who wish to curl up and watch.


Guest laundry is outsourced and is charged additionally.
