Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Take a trip back in time in this stunning manor house, steeped in both Welsh and English history. Like a historical jaunt for the senses, this unique and beautiful holiday home is packed full of medieval charm. A grade II* listed building, every feature in the property has been painstakingly retained, preserved and restored.
Four poster beds, heavy oak doors and ancient stone walls all welcome you in this breathtaking house situated on the southern tip of the Wye-Valley, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Once belonging to Henry VIII, the 12th Century manor house can accommodate groups of 12 - 14 guests. During your stay, the house, its grounds and all of its history and splendour can be yours.
Whilst the manor itself may be 800 years old, rest assured that the accommodation on offer is anything but dated. With state of the art appliances, thermostatically controlled radiators, designer soft furnishings and luxury bathrooms, the manor house certainly wont leave discerning visitors wanting.
In the large farmhouse kitchen you can cook up a feast to be served at the 9 foot table, or call in the caterers to do the hard work for you. The kitchen boosts a large range cooker, dishwasher, butlers sink, larder fridge and separate freezer, microwave, blender, toaster, kettle and Nepresso coffee maker as well as all the crockery and accoutrements you need to eat like a king.
Unlike the lords and ladies of the past, you won’t be short of ways to pass the time. There is a flat screen TV and DVD player, with Nexflix Disney+ and NowTV, as well as WiFI internet access throughout. All accommodation is on the first and second floors of the manor and guests will need to climb stairs. The owners do live on site and are available if guests need anything. However the accommodation has its own front door and driveway.
Traverse the ancient stone staircase and wonder at the historic comfy lounge located in what was the original great hall of the manor. Further sleeping accommodation can be found on the first floor, including the most amazing master bedroom featuring a medieval four poster carved bed, worthy of any king or queen. While the master bedrooms in the manor were one used as dormitories for monks, you can be certain that they are any but sparse these days.
The bathrooms in the house are fitted to the highest of standards and offer claw toed, roll top baths. As you would expect from accommodation of such high calibre, fluffy towels and first class toiletries come as standard.
The second floor offers three further bedrooms, all of which are as well decorated and beautiful as those below. All master bedrooms in the manor house come with their own en-suite facilities. The manor now has two family rooms with a king and single bed in each.
The gardens to the front and side of the manor are for guest use. In the warmer months you can enjoy a barbecue on the traditional medieval barbecue or Eat alfresco using the ample outdoor seating provided.
If you feel like taking your leave of the manor, you can explore the expansive countryside that surrounds the town of Caldicot. Try your hand at archery, horse riding, cycling, rambling and even beach combing or visit Caldicot Castle for the day. The area also offers a wide selection of first class pubs and restaurants for you to enjoy, as well as a selection of both independent and high street shops for a spot of retail therapy.
Your medieval adventure awaits, and all within easy driving distance of the M4 and M5 motorways.
Two night weekends range from £1600-£1900 depending on the time of year.

Such a wonderful stay with family at llanthony Secunda. The Manor felt very welcoming, it’s a huge place and with so many interesting features. The owner met us on arrival, was very helpful and friendly and had communicated well throughout the booking process. The manor was very clean, comfortable and in a great location. The kitchen was really well kitted out too. Would definitely stay here again!
