Self-Catering Accommodation at Annes Grove Miniature Castle
Annes Grove Miniature Castle
An intensely romantic one bedroom miniature medieval castle in a quiet rural area.
We had a wonderful few days away from the hustle and bustle of city life in our magical castle. It was like walking into a fairytale. The walk by the river has to be the most romantic place in the world!!
Absolutely amazing!! This was the trip that I have dreamed about my whole life. Annes Grove made my dreams come true. We love it!
Absolutely magical. We would happily stay here for another week or two if that was possible. This place is beautiful and so full of happiness. I can safely say that this has by far been my favourite little trip away and for once I am not longing for my own bed!
A miniature medieval castle, Annes Grove Gatelodge was designed in 1853 to impress visitors to the main house – Annesgrove House and Gardens. The silence which surrounds this rural property is part of the charm for our visitors. Beyond the gate, in the privacy of a small garden, guests can enjoy great peace and tranquility – and the small patio offers a wonderful opportunity to dine ‘al fresco’ on balmy summer evenings. This is an intensely romantic building.
It is situated at the junction of three quiet country roads and surrounded by mature beech trees, which cradle the property and stonewalls. Inside timber ceilings, wood floors, stone arches, and snug rooms make this property an idyllic setting for those looking for a romantic break.
Annes Grove was designed by Benjamin Woodward, of the distinguished firm of architects Deane and Woodward in 1849. Since Woodward designed only two gatelodges of this type, it is of some architectural importance. The lodge, prior to restoration, had not been lived in since the 1940s.
