Ladywell Castle

A medieval experience

Balanced on the picturesque Herefordshire hills, this magnificent Medieval-style castle is nestled between the Cotswolds and Welsh Marches and was built as a dream property for hosting parties - A dream that remains until today. Usually only open to the public on select days during the summer, the castle is the perfect venue for exclusive private hire for weddings, corporate and private events and parties as well as family getaways 

The fairy-tale entrance that greets guests upon arrival, following the drive through classical parkland, is simply the beginning of a truly magical experience at Ladywell Castle. Guests can walk through acres of gardens – a tourist attraction in its own right - picnic by the private lake or get lost in the Knight’s maze.

A treasured stay

Indoors, guests can easily spend hours admiring the vast collection of art treasure and medieval armour and the opulent gold-columned Pugin Room, designed by the man famous for the interiors of the Houses of Parliament. Fans of William Morris will be able to immerse themselves in rare interiors that reflect this era’s love of decoration by skilled artisans – a statement against the readymade culture that surrounds us even more today than when the castle was built.

Ladywell Castle also boasts many bedrooms which are large enough to be suites, a very large wine cellar and a knowledgeable staff - including a chef - who exudes professionalism and can advise and assist guests throughout their stay; all that guests would need to do is simply choose how they would like to spend their days.

From wine tasting to highwire-gliding

This outstanding property also features an endless array of activities and facilities, including a Landrover specialist adventure centre on site, estate shoots, estate fishing and a daredevil highwire - glide from the tallest tower to the other side of the lake in a few exhilarating seconds. Quieter days may include spa treatments, painting or wine tasting. Contact us for more details and be inspired by the options available. With so much on offer, it is easy to see why the Ladywell Castle has already hosted many major corporate events and is a highly popular venue for weddings and celebrations.
