A medieval Welsh manor house once owned by Henry VIII is now offered for rent at a reduced rate.
ON THE ENGLISH/WELSH BORDER, ONE OF Henry VIII’S FORMER PROPERTIES IS AVAILABLE TO RENT FOR A TRUE MEDIEVAL EXPERIENCE.
Anyone looking for the “ultimate celebration house” with a difference near the English border can rent a historic manor originally owned by King Henry VIII. Llanthony Secunda Manor, which dates from the 12th century and has seven bedrooms, can accommodate up to 16 people. However, how much does it cost to stay there and what is included in the price?
Llanthony Secunda Manor is located in Caldicot, on the southern point of the Wye-Valley, a region of remarkable natural beauty.
The vacation rental is approximately 13.7 miles from Newport and a 30-minute drive from Cardiff.
The home is a 20-minute drive from Bristol and only 35 minutes from the historic Roman town of Bath for guests travelling from England or interested in seeing the English side of the River Severn.
In terms of its immediate surroundings, the house is situated in a peaceful village.
It’s enclosed on three sides by towering stone walls, and it’s been called a “wonderful spot to rest and enjoy life.”
There are 13 beds and five baths in the 5500 square feet of history.
Inside, there’s a big banquet hall, a modern country kitchen, and a cozy sitting area with an antique open fire.
There is a large lawn in front of the house with plenty of picnic chairs and a play area for youngsters to enjoy the fresh air.
The hosts even offer to arrange for the use of a hot tub, additional cleaning services throughout your stay, and caterer information if the occasion calls for it.
Anyone interested in staying at the manor should contact Vrbo, where it is priced at £650 per night on average.
In terms of the building’s history, the Grade II listed structure has only had four private owners in its existence, one of which was Henry VIII.
It was put on the market for £875,000 last year.
In terms of what the house was utilized for during Henry VIII’s reign, historians believe it was a base for noblemen to go on hunting expeditions in search of deer and wild boar.
Henry took possession of the property. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
