Lord High Admiral at Sudeley Castle


No Pets
Local Pub

A charming and fabulously restored 2-bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 1 double room and 1 twin room with 2 large modern bathrooms - 1 en-suite to the double room and one family. Lord High Admiral has a fully-equipped modern kitchen, spacious living and dining area and double the space on the second floor thanks to its unique structure over an old coaching archway. A wide landing leads to 2 comfortable and spacious bedrooms, one with its own en-suite bathroom with a fixed shower over bathtub and a good-size family bathroom with big walk-in shower.

Guests staying at Lord High Admiral enjoy complimentary (other than separately ticketed events) day-time entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens during the open season.

Full Description

Lord High Admiral is a charming semi-detached cottage located in the Sudeley Castle Cottage Complex – and one of the most recent to be restored and converted. Lord High Admiral was one of the official titles conveyed upon Sir Thomas Seymour by King Edward VI. Guests staying at the cottage enjoy complimentary entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens (during the season).

The accommodation is arranged over two floors. Downstairs, there is a lounge with new contemporary soft furnishings, a dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. For your entertainment, there is a flat-screen TV and DVD player, whilst a new WiFi system provides you with access to the internet.

Upstairs there is one double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and one twin bedroom with a further large bathroom with a walk-in shower immediately adjacent. Fluffy towels and bedding are provided for all guests.

Guests have access to their own outdoor dining table and chairs facing into the cottage courtyard.

Supermarkets and Shopping:

The town itself benefits from several small supermarkets, including The Co-Operative Food, which is well-stocked with fresh produce and store cupboard essentials. Vale & Hills Family Butchers offers fantastic, local meat on the town’s high street, with a host of delicious goodies available at North’s Bakery for those in search of a fresh morning loaf.

Eating Out:
  • White Hart Inn (200 metres)
  • North Street (300 metres)
  • The Corner Cupboard (300 metres)

The Winchcombe Way, a 42-mile figure-of-eight trail centred around the town, offers walkers a great way of discovering the surrounding Cotswold towns and villages section-by-section over the course of a stay, whilst there are plenty of options for those looking for a more casual, leisurely pace within a close radius of the cottage. We recommend the Sudeley Castle Circular walk for a relaxing stroll; a 2-mile loop setting off straight from the cottage’s front door, taking you into the grounds of historic Sudeley Castle - a must-visit for any guest. The 2.5 mile walk to Belas Knap, a Neolithic chambered long barrow sat atop Cleeve Hill, is also a great walk to try from the doorstep, providing you don’t mind the incline.

Sudeley Castle:

If you wish to visit the Castle and gardens during your stay, please take your room key or booking receipt with you to the admissions desk. Steeped in a thousand years of history, Sudeley Castle makes for a fascinating day out, not to mention the vast number of events also taking place throughout the year.

My friends stayed in this property and we were able to get together very easily from St Kenelm. Good kitchen facilities, lovely bedrooms and the en-suite was a plus. They enjoyed their stay and appreciated the free entrance to the castle and gardens.

All in all a good experience and we will recommend it.
