At over 500 years old, and boasting a room once the boudior of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, this country castle hotel has a lot to give itself airs about. It's also the only Tudor castle open as a hotel, has some of the best original Tudor gardens in the UK yet has all the comforts five star guests expect.

The fixtures and fittings are reproductions, or 'in the style of', but that doesn't stop it feeling like the lap of luxury, and bedding and seating technology has moved forward since Henry's day, so it might be for the best.

You can sleep in the famous bedchamber for around £300 a night, but less famous rooms are about £100 pounds less.
