Our Holiday Cottage
Dating back to 1903, Medley Court is a luxurious four bedroom holiday cottage forming part of the Astor Wing, recently 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.
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 grounds 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.
Tickets to the Castle & Gardens are included with every stay and do not need to be booked separately online.

A huge ‘Thank You’ to you all for making our Medley Court stay such an incredibly memorable one. My mother, sister and I were all three so delighted with our stay and are still overwhelmed by the absolute beauty of Medley Court, Hever Castle and every aspect of the surrounding grounds – it is all truly stunning. Every member of staff we came into contact with was an absolute pleasure to communicate with and oh so knowledgeable on the history of Hever! Through what has become such a challenging time for all, we felt everything was managed in the most cautious, careful and caring way – and all should be commended for this.

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our weekend at Medley Court.
It really was a special occasion for us and we found the property ideal. The grounds of the Castle are really beautiful and as you say the lake walk was lovely.
All your staff were very welcoming and could not be more helpful - please thank them from us.
We will certainly return to Hever in the summer when the Castle will be open for us to see round.
I just wanted to thank you and your colleagues for such a wonderful stay at Medley Court, and to wish you and your husband all the very best for October.
During our stay we were made so welcome and everyone we came across was so friendly. Of course, the accommodation was fantastic and comfortable. My wife, Denise, was so favourably impressed she would like another week’s holiday there in 2018, perhaps in June / July or September.
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
