Thornbury Castle – one of the only Tudor castles in England to be used as a hotel – has been put on the market for offers in excess of £8.5m.
The Grade I-listed castle in South Gloucestershire dates back to 1330 and houses 28 en suite bedrooms, one of which was occupied by Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn in 1535. All are individually styled and retain period features such as exposed beam work and arrow slit windows.
The property, which has been put on the market by Luxury Family Hotels, also features a two AA Rosette restaurant, private dining facilities, conference rooms, indoor and outdoor spaces licensed for wedding ceremonies and a vineyard.
Martin Rogers, head of UK hotel transactions at Savills, which is marketing the property, said the hotel offers a “unique opportunity” to an investor looking to own an historic hotel.
“The fantastic reputation of the business and the sympathetic Tudor interiors have ensured the hotel remains popular with guests and we expect significant interest while marketing the asset,” he added.
The hotel is located within 15.4 acres of grounds on the edge of the market town, and Savills said there is potential for further development of both the property and grounds.
