Hever Castle

Edenbridge, Kent
Bed & Breakfast

A 13th-century castle, once home to Anne Boleyn, in 625 acres of majestic grounds - bedrooms in the Astor wing are fabulous.


25 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Hever is out of this world, a 13th-century moated castle that was home to Anne Boleyn, second wife to Henry VIII, mother of Elizabeth I. It is one of those places that thrills adults and children alike. It has all the regal trimmings: 625 acres of green and pleasant land with formal gardens and a 38-acre lake. You stay in the Astor wing or the Anne Boleyn wing, both built in Tudor style in 1903. Family-friendly rooms are fit for a queen. Expect period colours, panelled walls, perhaps a golden chaise longue or a glimpse of the castle through leaded windows. One has a vaulted ceiling, bigger rooms have sofas, several have four-poster beds. Bathrooms are faultless, some with claw-foot baths, others with walk-in power showers; a few have both. There’s a panelled sitting room, a timber-framed billiard room, and a small courtyard for summer sun. Entrance to the castle and gardens is included in your room price. You can wander the grounds, boat on the lake, watch the odd spot of jousting, while a moated castle playground is a big hit with kids. A village pub for good food is a short stroll. Unbeatable.
