The Details...

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 up to16 guests. During your stay, the house, its grounds and all of its history and splendour can be exclusively 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 medieval gourmet kitchen you can cook up a feast or call in the caterers to provide for you using the range cooker with 4 ovens and 6 burners. The kitchen also offers an American fridge/freezer, drinks refrigerator, dishwashers, microwave, blender, toaster, kettle and automatic coffee maker, coffee press and all the crockery and accoutrements you need to eat like a king. Modern day living nestled deep in the bowels of history.

The main lounge is the perfect place to relax on the sumptuous Chesterfield sofas, whilst warming your hands on the cavernous open hearth fire. 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 as well as Sky TV, and WiFI internet access throughout. The ground floor also offers two bedrooms, sleeping five guests between them and a stunning luxury bathroom.

Traverse the ancient stone staircase and wonder at the great dining hall, complete with its very own knight in shining armour. Eat at the enormous traditional oak table, or enjoy a light snack in the breakfast room on the same floor.
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 gardens surrounding the manor are simply stunning. In the warmer months you can enjoy a barbecue on the traditional medieval barbecue. Eat alfresco using the ample outdoor seating provided, while you watch the children enjoy the play area with its own play house. Or if you are feeling romantic, take a stroll through the delightful private medieval garden where you can practice to art of courtly love.

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 M48 motorways.
