Mr and Mrs Proudfoot's Bedroom is one of 21 rooms in the dolls' house Pendle Hall. It was designed and decorated by Felicity Clemons over a forty year period, and each piece of furniture and fixture was handmade by her. She used books and magazines for inspiration, and to achieve a high level of accuracy in the design and execution of each item.

It is medium sized room in the basement of the house, where Pendle Hall's butler and cook, Mr and Mrs Proudfoot sleep. They are the head servants of the household, so have their own bedroom near the front of the house.

On the left hand wall is a wooden bedside table, with a lower storage section. On top are two small framed pictures, while on the bottom is a book. Next to the table is a wooden double bed, with carved bedheads, covered in a red and white floral bedspread. Next to this is a wooden trunk, with metal fixtures and a domed lid.
