You can be king of the castle or lord of the manor when you stay at a holiday home run by English Heritage.
All of their accommodation offers a unique experience, and you’re surrounded by history. You’ll be staying in a stylish apartment with all mod cons, so there’s no need to worry about languishing in a cold, dark dungeon.
Among the sites on offer are Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight, where you can walk the ramparts before bedtime, and the sergeant major’s house at Dover Castle, which has wonderful views of the Channel. Couples can snuggle up in the custodian’s house at Pendennis Castle in Cornwall, which was built by Henry VIII to defend the south coast from attack.
