This historic castle steeped in history is surrounded by stunning views of the Cotswolds.
The castle was once the home to Katherine Parr the last surviving wife of king Henry VIII. Henry himself, Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, Queen Elizabeth the 1st and Richard the 3rd have all played a part in Sudeley’s story.
Following its ‘slighting’ on Cromwells orders Sudeley lay neglected and derelict for 200 years. Then in 1837 Sudeley was rescued by John and William Dent who began a restoration programme.
The castle is now the home of the Dent Brocklehursts and Lord and Lady Ashcombe and is open to visitors on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday.
There are nine enchanting gardens around the castle, the centre piece being ‘Queen Garden’ surrounded by great hedges of yew. In spring tulips prevail, in summer it becomes a wonderful showcase for roses.
There is also a wild flower walk to the to the tithe barn and heritage seed centre.
