The linen room 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 large room in the basement of the house, next to the laundry, which was used to store machester and other textile items used in the household.

Along the back wall is a long wooden linen press, with four large wooden doors and four long wooden drawers along the front. Inside are piles of blue and white bed linen. In front is a wooden step ladder with a handrail along one side. On top of the press are seven cardboard hat boxes of various colours and patterns.

On the left hand wall is a wooden table and a small wooden chair with a woven seat.

Due to the sunken staircase above it, the room has an irregular shaped ceiling. The floor and walls have the appearance of stone blocks.
