Tudor and 17th Century Experience activities.
We have 6 bedroom available furnished with genuine Tudor and Stuart four poster beds (albeit with the most modern memory foam mattresses for your comfort). Stays will include a range of activities depending on duration and desire
We have a calendar of activities for the year such as our famous Eastertide and Lammas feasts. Attendance at these can be specifically booked or they can be integrated into a stay with us.
The Tudor and 17th Experience offers a range of different activities all themed around the 16th and 17th Centuries. At one end of the spectrum you can stay with us for a given length of time and immerse yourself however deep you wish to go into this wonderful era. These stays can be costumed (in part) or not, whatever your preference. At the other end of the spectrum we can be booked to deliver papers, lectures and seminars wherever needed.
On the left you will find a range of different services offered by the Tudor and 17th Century experience together with sample prices on the Stays page. However, we pride ourselves on the individual touch and actively welcome dialogue so we can set up your perfect event or stay, geared 100% around whatever you are seeking.
