The (servants) bathroom 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 a small room in the basement of the house, below the withdrawing room, which was used for washing in a time there was plumbing available in the house. This bathroom would have been for household servants to use.

On the left hand wall is a wooden dresser, on which sits two candlesticks, and a wooden chair. On the right hand wall is a tiered clothes airer covered with towel and cloths, a wooden boot-shaped receptacle and a wooden ewer.

Along the back wall is a two seater adult toilet and a single seater child's toilet, both with removable seats. There are two rolls of toilet paper next to the toilets. Above them is a long rectangular sash window with a pair of red and white checked curtains.

On the front right hand wall is a door to Mr and Mrs Proudfoot's bedroom, and on the front right hand wall is a door to the servants' hall. The floor and walls have the appearance of stone blocks. There is a light fitting in the middle of the ceiling.
