Urania is a very spacious double room with a queen-size bed.
In Greek mythology she was the muse of astronomy and is usually shown with a globe in her hand, dressed in a cloak with stars, her eyes and attention focused on the Heavens. Indeed her name has been used to name countless astronomical observatories all around the world.
She is able to tell the future by how the stars are aligned and is often associated with the Holy Spirit, universal love, the heavens and philosophy.
There is a very interesting article here about a Urania Cottage for fallen women set up with the help of Charles Dickens. There’s also a book been written about it: Charles Dickens and the House of Fallen Women. Some of the inmates probably provided inspiration for some of the female characters in Dickens’ novels.
Urania is the only room, other than Calliope, that has a queen double instead of a full size double bed. It also has a decorative fireplace, and two large windows overlooking the valley.
The room has its own hallway and exclusive use of a toilet in this hall. It shares the shower upstairs with one other room.
