Thornbury Castle, Thornbury, South Gloucs, BS35 1HH Te No 01454 281182
How about having an afternoon tea in a castle, Thornbury Castle in Gloucestershire, as listed in afternoontea.co.uk

According to the Hotel, Kings and queens have stayed here. Courtiers have flirted with ladies-in-waiting in the ancient yew-hedged gardens. Serving girls have chattered in the stone-flagged courtyard. Today, Thornbury Castle still resonates with history and is the only Tudor castle in England to be open as a hotel… and it’s only 15 minutes from the M5.

However, step behind the heavy oak doors and you’ll find a magnificent hotel with roaring fires, delicious modern cuisine and sumptuous bedchambers – a truly special setting for an overnight stay, a weekend away or for more formal occasions.

Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn once walked these rooms and grounds. Today, the 500 year-old castle-palace with its beautiful oriel windows, Tudor hall and historic parkland is yours for the duration of your stay. There has even been a vineyard within the castle walls for over 500 years, from which Thornbury Castle wine is still produced.

Enjoy a regal night’s sleep in the Duke’s Bedchamber where King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn slept or favour the Gloucester Bedchamber and wake up to a view of the oldest Tudor gardens in England – the Privy Garden and Goodly Garden.

    1. Hope you make it, it is lovey in Thornbury.
      Dad’s ‘coping’ I suppose is the correct word. Still feeling very guilty and keeps saying he’s letting Mum down and he is missing her and feels like he is sending her to prison. I think in time this will pass as we cannot really do anything else just time. I wanted to bring him hime but he wont leave Mum at the moment but again I think once she is settled into a proper care home he will feel better. Thanks for asking xx
