Castle Accomodation near London

Hi All,

Am travelling over to London for 10 days in a week, and have a couple days left where I haven't yet allocated accomodation.

The wife is keen to stay in a castle for a night or two. Can anyone recommend a castle which offers accomodation, and is located within an hour or two of London, and no further north than Brum?

Thanks in Advance, travellers...

Not cheap, but lovely and not far from London.

Several years ago I stayed at Thornbury Castle, near Bristol. It was fantastic. The castle is very historic, and the present building dates from about 1508. It also has connections with Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. I can highly recommend a stay there.

Strictly speaking Hampton Court is a palace, not a castle, but it might appeal

Unfortunately, you can't stay overnight in Hampton Court.

Unless you hide out for the night. But you might lose your head if they catch you ;)

Even though it's not a castle, I think this would be a lovely place to stay.

FIY, I love HCP but no way would I spend a night there. But maybe that's just me...
