Our Holiday Cottage
Dating back to 1903, Medley Court is a luxurious four bedroom property forming part of the Astor Wing, recently awarded a ‘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.
Whilst staying in this superb property, guests have the opportunity to visit the historic castle throughout the duration of their stay, once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife and mother of Queen Elizabeth I. Guests also have the unique opportunity of access to the gardens and ground during times when they are closed to the public, providing a unique opportunity to soak in the breath-taking views and scenery in complete privacy.
Upon arrival, a member of the Astor Wing staff will guide you to the private driveway, check you into Medley Court and present a ‘Castle Kitchen’ welcome hamper to get you started.
Bookings are available on a week by week stay however short stays are available on a short lead basis. Check in on the day of arrival is from 4pm and check out on the day of departure is by 10am.

We had the most wonderful week at Medley Court!!! It could not have been any more perfect. It was for my father’s 80th birthday and the first thing we found on our arrival was a beautiful bouquet of flowers and birthday card. How thoughtful, my father was delighted and felt very spoilt. Medley Court itself is stunning, the welcome hamper great, and everything has been thought of. It was a very special, very happy week, we have made memories we will treasure.
We just wanted to say a big thank you to you & your staff for our incredible stay at Medley Court Hever Castle! We fell in love with Medley Court, the Castle & grounds and didn't want to return home. My son has asked if we may one day return for Christmas with my two older children. Thank you again for our wonderful stay

We were lucky enough to stay at Medley Court within the Astor Wing at Hever Castle. It is an incredible setting and very well appointed with everything you would want, plus a bit more! Medley Court was big enough for one of us to actually get lost. Access to the gardens after hours was also brilliant. We're considering going back for Christmas!

We have just left Medley court after spending the weekend there and I just wanted to say, on behalf of all 6 of us, what a fantastic time we had. You certainly know how to do things properly. All the little touches you do at the house make such a huge difference – the Molton Brown, fresh flowers and homemade scones etc really did make us feel like royalty for the weekend!
