Thornbury Castle-Member of Von Essen Hotels a private collection of individual country houses in the UK and Scotland-Voted 7th Best Hotel in the British Isles in the Conde Nast Traveler Awards 2005. 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 its 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.
