Step back in time in this extraordinary Tudor castle on the edge of the Cotswolds. This hotel offers the perfect luxurious retreat – combining 500-year-old architecture with sumptuous facilities. Thornbury Castle is a place to de-stress – take a stroll around the manicured lawns and landscaped grounds, book a massage in your own bedchamber and relax over a delicious meal in our exclusive restaurant.
Thornbury Castle not only provides excellent value for money, it combines secluded luxury with easy access – being close to the M4, M5 and Bristol with its international airport. There’s even a helipad for those who prefer to fly right up to the front door.
As soon as you arrive at Thornbury Castle, you feel as though you have stepped back in time. Many of the 26 sumptuous bedchambers have four-poster beds, and the décor throughout the hotel artfully recreates the Tudor style in which royalty and aristocracy would have languished, feasted and been entertained.
The Tower Dining Room dominated by a magnificent open fireplace and arrow-slit windows, you cannot fail to be charmed by the unique atmosphere of this hexagonal room which seats up to 30 people.
Whether you are planning a lavish lunch with views over the vineyard and castle walls or a cosy dinner party accompanied by a roaring fire, The Baron’s Sitting Room is an intimate room seats up to 22 people. Its annexe, the Chancellor Lounge area, is ideal for pre- or post-prandial drinks.
Each of the 26 bedchambers is unique – most with coronet or four-poster beds. While focussing attention on historical detail, the designers have not skimped on contemporary luxuries. The rooms are far warmer than they would have been in Henry VIII’s time, and the bathrooms are both opulent and well-appointed with everything you would expect in a top-flight en-suite.
Choose from a range of relaxing, invigorating or deep-tissue massage and then enjoy it in the peace, privacy and comfort of your unique bedchamber. Or you can take a short drive to the affiliated Vicarage Farm Holistic Therapy Centre and immerse yourself in a serious pampering session.
