WINTER RESIDENCE, FOR INVALIDS.
£10,000 HAVE been expended in addition to the
outlay in completing this Establishment, and it is now
unrivalled as a temporary home for the Invalid in summer,
or in the
coldest winter weather.
The extensive Saloons command the beautiful scenery
of the Matlock
Valley; they are all connected with the Bed-rooms and
new Bath-houses, so that the Invalid need not set foot
out of doors in cold
or wet weather, and, with ample space for air and exercise.
The Saloons are glazed the whole extent of the front,
recesses with couches, and a table in the centre of
each. Invalids can
repose in comparative, privacy, free from draughts,
and at the same time
have the advantage of the public room. These recesses
are a novel
feature in the construction of rooms, and will no doubt
be copied in large
Establishments, as they afford great privacy even amongst
a large company.
The Bath-houses are distinct buildings, each. 25 feet
wide, 20 high, and
100 feet long, warmed with steam, and contain separate
boxes for each
individual to have the treatment privately. Each box
is supplied with
hot and cold water, steam, and all necessary apparatus
for the baths.
There is a covered promenade 200 feet long, open to
the South West
only, which will be found very convenient to patients
who can take but
little out-door exercise. Also, alcoves and smooth walks
in the grounds,
suited for bath chairs.
