Staying in Period Style – The Inns, Hotels, and Country Manor Homes of South West England
Sleep like a king.
Thornbury Castle is located in Thornbury, Gloucestershire and adjacent to the Cotswolds. The property has an interesting history dating back to the 10th century and the castle was first built in the 16th century. It is most noted as one of the honeymoon stops of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn where they spent ten days on their honeymoon tour of England. The Tudor castle fell into ruins over time and in the mid 19th century was renovated for a family home and has now been converted to a luxury hotel.
Images of Henry VIII feasting at an oversized wooden table in the dining room with large open fireplaces and knights guarding the castle, can still be imagined even today. Stay at this beautiful castle to experience the atmosphere of Tudor England with the service and comforts of a 21st century luxury hotel and spa.
The hotel restaurant offers sumptuous dining using fresh ingredients from their kitchen garden and a wine list that’s sure to impress even the most discriminating oenophiles. If you’re looking for a romantic evening for two, be sure to request dinner in the Privy Garden and if you have a small group, take advantage of booking a special dinner in the dungeon. Regardless of the venue for dining, a stay at this property is sure to create memories for a lifetime.
