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.
