Five Star Luxury Stays

Dating back to 1903, Medley Court is a luxurious four bedroom holiday cottage forming part of the Astor Wing, awarded a 2018 VisitEngland ROSE Award in Recognition Of Service Excellence, as well as ‘five-star gold’ rating by Quality in Tourism. The charming, double-moated Hever Castle and surrounding formal lawns provide a stunning backdrop to this beautiful holiday cottage in a truly historic location. Although Medley Court is now just over one hundred years old, its appearance is that of a Tudor house, the standard of decoration and comfort is outstanding and it still retains the warm, relaxed feel of a family home.

Medley Court, awarded a ‘five star gold’ grading by VisitEngland, attracts visitors from all over the world. We are overwhelmed by the kind words left in the ‘Visitors Book’ and emails we receive following a stay.

I want to tell you how greatly we and our guests enjoyed our visit to Hever Castle, the Astor Wing and Medley Court. Our whole weekend proved to be a great success and everything was beautifully arranged. Our lunch at the Golf Club – sitting outside in the sunshine – was exactly what was required and the staff there were very helpful and considerate. The highlight for us was our stay in Medley Court which is so well furnished and equipped. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in the dining room with rack of lamb and a special anniversary cake. It was a great pleasure for us and our guests to be able to walk in the wonderful grounds and the two small children thought that the playgrounds were fantastic.

Douglas, October 2023

WOW. We stayed at Medley Court as a group of 8 as part of our Wedding weekend at Hever Castle. Our stay was absolute perfection. When we arrived at Medley Court, we were all blown away by how amazing Medley Court is. It is tucked away behind the Bed & Breakfast and has its own driveway and plenty of space for parking. The property is huge! We thoroughly enjoyed exploring all of the different parts of it (a new delight to see around every corner!). We absolutely loved having a kitchen with seating as well as a separate formal dining room, too. The spacious living room has its own log fire with plenty of logs stored outside in the private garden area. The bedrooms were amazing – beautiful fireplaces, a four poster bed and amazing bathrooms. Everything was spotlessly clean. We also loved the covered outside space with views out onto the side of Hever Castle. I couldn’t recommend staying in Medley Court enough – all of our guests certainly had a memorable time. A huge thank you to all of the staff at Hever who are so incredibly helpful, polite and hardworking. They are proud of both Medley Court and the other amazing rooms in the B&B… and rightfully so!
