Sleep in the UK's largest four-poster bed at Thornbury Castle

About

Enjoy exceptional features including 24-carat gilding and the largest four-poster bed in any UK hotel. Sumptuous Tudor furnishings, silk wall hangings and stunning views across Gloucestershire make this, quite literally, the top suite in the castle. 

Thornbury Castle is a beautiful 16th century building, which was once owned by Henry VIII and stands in 15 acres of regal splendour, surrounded by its vineyards and Tudor garden. It is renowned for being one of the finest country house hotels in England. It nestles on the northern edge of Thornbury adjacent to the Gloucestershire countryside, 12 miles north of Bristol, and is well placed for visiting the Cotswolds, the Georgian city of Bath and Wales.

Choose the high life: the Tower suite is at the top of the tower in the South Wing, reached by a stone spiral staircase of 77 steps (they’ll carry your luggage).
