England's only Tudor castle hotel, with a visitors book full of past monarchs and a spectacular setting on the edge of the Cotswolds
The 500-year-old Thornbury Castle is the country's only Tudor castle hotel and is a stunning base for exploring the Cotswolds. Constructed in the early 1500s by the Duke of Buckingham, it has hosted such prestigious guests as Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Mary I and keeps modern-day guests occupied with regal pastimes that include falconry, archery, fishing and croquet.
Much of the castle dates back to the 16th century and retains period features like large open fireplaces, ornate carved ceilings, intricate oriel windows and shining suits of armour in the corridors. As well as lording it in the castle's expansive walled gardens, you can depart from Medieval times and retreat to the nearby Vicarage Farm holistic therapy centre for a little relaxation.
We're offering a stay in a Classic room, with a full English breakfast each morning and a three-course a la carte dinner in the evening.
