The Rushworth is located on the third floor of the converted Abbey Church. It is a fantastic one bedroom apartment with the benefit of a double height volume in the large open plan kitchen/dining room/reception area. Given its elevated position it has great views over the estate. The kitchen dining area sits below the huge curved span of the original Abbey Church ceiling. The Rushworth also contains some of the large and impressive exposed sandstone columns which support the vaulted roof of the former church. The apartment is accessed from the gothic Cloisters and then through the large Atrium.
The large dual aspect kitchen/dining room/reception has granite work surfaces and is fully fitted with electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. The master bedroom has fitted cupboards and a view over the Great Glen. The bathroom has a bath, wc, basin and shower cubicle. There is a sofa bed in the spacious reception in this apartment and so the apartment can therefore comfortably sleep 4.
There is free WiFi in the apartment.
The Abbey Church is linked to the rest of the development and its facilities by the gothic arches and gargoyles of the central cloister (formerly the Fort’s parade ground). High quality towels and bedding are provided. Free Wi-Fi is available in this apartment and also in The Highland Club Lounge.
