Say fare thee well to your regular life – it's time to live out your knight's tale fantasies at this extraordinary Medieval manor house. This home dates back to the twelfth century and was even owned by Henry VIII a couple of centuries later. As soon as the moment you step through the gigantic wooden door, you'll feel like you've stepped back in time.
You’ll have access to the first and second floor of the home, which are packed with historic charm and traditional details. We love the spiral staircases and narrow corridors leading to cosy corners and antique furniture. Exposed stone walls and dark timber beams add to the characterful decor of this memorable home. The master bedroom features a wood-carved four-poster bed with intricate artistry, and a roll-top bath in the nearby bathroom.
In the kitchen, it's easy to imagine the cooks of yesteryear bustling about the hearth while preparing a banquet for the Lord of the house. Happily, things are a little easier these days – there’s now a beautiful farmhouse kitchen with a range cooker. When you’ve whipped up a feast fit for a king, it can be served at the nine-foot table, where you’ll sit until late sipping wine and catching up.
The Wye Valley is on your doorstep with its crumbling castle ruins, Arthurian landmarks, and quiet market towns. A ten-minute walk takes you into Caldicot centre, buzzing with cafes, shops and a handy train station. Yet the manor's sprawling grounds and walled rose gardens make it feel as though you’re away from it all.
