Medley Court is a luxurious four bedroom property forming part of the Astor Wing, William Waldorf Astor’s magnificent addition to Hever Castle in 1903. The double moated Castle provides a stunning backdrop to Medley Court and creates a truly historical setting.
The house has been superbly restored and refurbished to the highest standard retaining all of Astor’s hand crafted wood panelling.
Whilst staying at this superb location, guests have the opportunity to visit the historic Castle, once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife and mother of Queen Elizabeth I.
Guests also have the unique opportunity of gaining access to much of the award winning gardens, lake and parkland during times when the grounds are closed to the public offering them the chance to appreciate the breathtaking views and scenery in complete privacy.
Medley Court is also conveniently located for other famous attractions in Kent & Sussex including; Chartwell, the country home.
Golf: Hever Castle Golf Club lies just a short drive from Junction 5 or 6 of the M25 making it easily accessible, however when you step on to the first tee a feeling of being 'Far from the Madding Crowd' quickly takes over.
The Championship Course, comprised of the Kings and Queens 9s, was recently showcased on Sky Sports as a venue for the EuroPro Tour. It has also hosted many other prestigeous events including The Kent Open and Kent PGA Championship and has provided a fitting examination for many PGA Professionals, however with numerous teeing positions the course becomes a gentler, fairer and truly enjoyable game of golf for all abilities.
At a glance of the scorecard one of the longest holes in Europe, the 644 yard Par 5 seventeenth hole, certainly stands out; but Hever Castle Golf Club boasts an array of stunning holes all over it's 7002 yard, par 72 layout. The delightful short sixth and eighth holes on the front nine are both played over water, and a beautiful stretch of holes from the eleventh to the thirteenth (Hever Castle's very own 'Amen Corner') where carries over water and small slick greens have to be negotiated to keep your scorecard intact.
The Championship layout is also complimented by the 2784 yard Par 35 Princes nine hole course, which is a wonderful layout in its own right and kept in the same tip top condition of its 7000 yard Par72 neighbour. Also on offer is a Hybrid Course which blends the Princes and Kings 9's to create a very enjoyable 18 holes.
