Hever Castle (the childhood home of Anne Boleyn) has 'luxury B&B' accommodation within the grounds:

Now this sounds like fun. I haven't checked the reviews so please do so.

It is surprisingly hard to find any with the character left intact. Some I knew but they have been converted to flats. Some came under haunted houses which isn't so good if she has been ill!

Hertfordshire has a wealth of Tudor buildings. Have you been to Hampton Court with the H8 exhibition, Tudor cookery etc? hrp.org.uk/HamptonCourtPalace/WhatsOn/youngh…

How Tudor do you want it? Could it be modernised inside with a spa or should it be authentic?

Hatfield House is a short journey out of London. The old Place is one of the places "acquired" by Henry VII and where Elizabeth I learnt she was Queen.

Near Hampton Court is Richmond which was another Tudor Palace - only the gatehouse and a side building remain.

Madeley Court Hotel was built in Tudor times.

Close to Shrewsbury and Ironbridge if that sort of stuff also takes your fancy.

The Bear Hotel in Hungerford (https:/…hotels-in-hungerford-the-bear-hotel) was reputedly given to Anne Boleyn as a wedding present. We stayed in the Boleyn Room in the main building of the hotel.

You can actually stay at Hampton Court but the two flats might be too big for you
