Lounge

Intent upon keeping Rapunzel forever, the sorceress shut her up in a high, high tower in a forest. She shut Rapunzel up in it so there was no way for her to get out. The sorceress left neither stairs nor a door.The biggest change to the Lounge was the front door and staircase that was added to the tower during the previous century. Throughout the castle, the theme of angels and cherubs was extensively used to symbolise the angelic desire of Rapunzel to one day escape the confines of the tower and be free.

“The size of the fireplace will ensure that even the coldest Clarens night is comfortable, cosy and warm.”

This theme was also used in the formal lounge area. Entering the room, the guest is first struck by the impressive and very dramatic fireplace adorned with cherubs in an antique gold finish. The size of the fireplace will ensure that even the coldest Clarens night is comfortable, cosy and warm.

”He saw again, and Dame Gothel’s promise of ever-lasting misery and grief died there, proving powerless to restrain the celebration that followed.”
Above the fireplace a huge painting of the prince and his beloved Rapunzel leaving the church on their wedding day provides a glimpse of the “celebration that followed”. This painting is reflected in a heavily gilded mirror on the opposite wall, again decorated with the ever-present cherubs.
