Overview of The Medieval Manor

What Oliver loves…

  • Coffee, tea, and biscuits will be waiting for you when you arrive at this manor in Wales.
  • History lovers will be beside themselves - this home was owned by Henry VIII, and looks the part!
  • Nearby historical attractions include the Roman settlement at Caerwent and St. Fagan's museum in Cardiff.

What you should know…

  • This manor is located in a residential town, where there’s a private garden but not extensive grounds.
  • In true “Upstairs Downstairs” style, the kitchen is beneath the dining room.

Live like the Tudors at this true Medieval Manor in Wales - you’ll return from holiday with royal bragging rights, as it was once owned by Henry VIII. Ancient nooks and crannies are everywhere - your guests will love exploring the spiral staircases, touching the same stone walls as kings. Heavy oak doors, tapestries, carved antique bedframes, and even a suit of armour populate the rooms, recalling times long past.

Though it may seem like a cold stone castle, modern amenities will make the historical accuracy of this holiday manor easier to bear! There’s heating (of course), and an entertainment system for the kids. The kitchen is up to the challenge to prepare a modern-day feast, with large granite workspaces and an electric range. If the weather’s right, outside in the garden there’s space to hold a barbecue and for the kids to play.

England and Wales are both at your fingertips from this locale, near the village of Caldicot on the River Severn. There's a 55 acre park and Norman Castle within easy walking distance of the manor. A 20 minute drive will bring you to Bristol, or 35 minutes to the ancient spa city of Bath.

Interior & Grounds

The exquisite period kitchen comes with granite work tops and an easy to use electric range cooker. Modern appliances include the American fridge-freezer with ice maker and dishwasher. There is a further refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster, kettle and automatic coffee maker. A welcome package is provided for all our guests which includes coffee, tea, and biscuits.

You will find plenty of entertainment at the manor, the cosy relaxing living room has a flat screen TV with Sky+ and DVD player. Wifi is available throughout the manor. A great selection of DVD's books and board games are also provided. There is a seperate lounge for the children to enjoy with a TV, DVD player and playstation. All rooms have at least one thermostatically controlled radiator to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The manor comfortably sleeps 16 adults in its 7 bedrooms. The bedrooms comprise of two large master bedrooms located in the 15th century wing of the manor. These were originally dormitory rooms for the monks of Llanthony. They have a king size four poster medieval carved bed as well as en-suite facilities.

The third bedroom also has a king size bed which is on a hand carved frame, there is also a single bed in this room. The fourth bedroom is a twin room with basin and mirror. Also on this level there is a large bathroom with claw and foot bath and separate shower.

The fifth bedroom is a double room located off the great hall. The sixth bedroom is a ground floor twin room. The seventh bedroom, also on the ground floor, is a triple room. The manor has two bathrooms both with separate shower and claw and foot baths. There is also a w/c located off the ground floor foyer.

All our towels are of the highest quality and we only use designer Dorma sheets and covers on all our beds.

The gardens surround the manor on three sides with a high stone wall to the rear and enclosing the side gardens. Enjoy a barbeque in the large garden with ample seating provided. Our guests will delight in the private medieval garden where they can practice the art of courtly love. There is also a children's play area with a large play house.

Map, Location & Local Information

The Manor is located on the southern tip of the Wye-Valley, which is an area known for its outstanding natural beauty. The house is located 10 minutes from the M4 and 15 minutes from the M5 motorways. The manor is the perfect location for both outdoor sports and tourism.

Located only 20 minutes from Bristol, 30 minutes from Cardiff and 35 minutes from the ancient Roman city of Bath, guests could not be better located for touring both England and Wales.  The Manor is situated in the quiet village of Caldicot, 100 yards from the Norman castle and its 55 acre country park.

The house stands in its own private gardens near to the medieval church of St. Mary's which was also built by the monks of Llanthony in the 12th century.

The Region

While the image of lush valleys and a laid-back lifestyle are right at the heart of a holiday in Wales, don’t think stunning landscapes and a bit of relaxation are the only thing on offer in this beautiful country. Don’t believe us?
