England's only Tudor castle hotel, with a spectacular Cotswolds setting and historic landscaped grounds - breakfast and dinner included

The 500-year-old Thornbury Castle is the country's only Tudor castle hotel and a stunning base for exploring the Cotswolds. Constructed in the early 1500s by the Duke of Buckingham, it has hosted such prestigious guests as Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Mary I, and keeps modern-day guests occupied with regal pastimes like falconry, archery and croquet.

Much of the castle dates back to the 16th century and retains period features like large open fireplaces, ornate carved ceilings, intricate oriel windows and shining suits of armour in the corridors. Alongside lording it up in the castle's expansive walled gardens, you can depart from medieval times and retreat to the nearby Vicarage Farm holistic therapy centre for a little relaxation, or tuck into delectable dishes and afternoon tea at the restaurant. Thornbury Castle carries a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence under its princely belt.
