With its aura of spectacular otherworldliness, Thornbury Castle stands proudly in the county of Gloucestershire, near Bristol, England. Sumptuously set within 15-acre grounds, the 16th-century Tudor architecture and historic charm of this exceptional hotel are embodied not only in its stone walls but also in its majestic interiors, as evidenced by its spacious rooms and suites. Remarkably peaceful, the hotel provides the perfect tableau to the lush countryside of the Severn Valley. It encapsulates the best of castle life, with days spent relaxing in front of the fire, being pampered in the spa treatment room, enjoying royal afternoon tea, basking in idle contemplation accompanied by spectacular views over the enclosed gardens and indulging in the many activities nearby. It is an enchanting setting, that can be savoured in the four dining rooms of Thornbury Castle’s gourmet restaurant, where the focus is on creative cuisine that celebrates the essentials. Chef Carl Cleghorn brilliantly blends garden vegetables and produce from local farmers, offering both traditional and vegetarian menus that will delight the most discerning of connoisseurs.
