The Dowsby suite is a spacious and elegantly double room with luxury ensuite facilities. This room is named after another of our local villages, renowned for the Jacobean Dowsby Hall which was previously home to Henry Burtt, who originally came up with the idea for the hit radio show, The Archers.
Brief insight: Around 1920 Henry Burtt became the tenant farmer at Dowsby Hall. He was a highly skilled and incredibly innovative farmer, tending to land in Dowsby, Rippingale and many other local villages.
At one point Burtt was the largest producer of blackcurrants in Britain, his blackcurrants were used to provide fruit juice for Ribena. In 1946, the BBC Radio producer Godfrey Baseley, later to become first editor of The Archers, came to Rippingale to make a programme called Farm Visit. Henry Burtt and his son Stephen showed him their land all round Rippingale. A couple of years later, the idea for The Archers was born.
