We recommend staying at either Villa Magdala, The Carpenter’s Arms or Radford Villa. On the morning of the course most people drive to Timsbury Village and stroll down to the school. We are able to offer a shuttle service from various pick up points if required. Please contact us if you require this service.
Built in 1868, this handsome Victorian townhouse was named after the Battle of Maqdala, fought in Abyssinia in the same year. Field Marshall Lord Robert Napier, who commanded the campaign, lived nearby in Henrietta Street as a boy. The house was named in his honour.
Originally constructed as an adjoining pair of gracious family homes, Magdala and Avondale later became a single dwelling and then a luxury boutique B&B hotel.
The spacious rooms and sash windows are indicative of the grandeur of the Victorian period. The grand main staircase and the elegant hallway tell of the style and splendour of the families who lived and entertained here.
