Eastnor Castle, located in Herefordshire, England, has won one of the prestigious 2015 Hudson’s Heritage Awards, which were announced on Tuesday 3 March 2015. Eastnor Castle scooped the award in the 'Best Accommodation' category. Established in 2011, the awards are an independently judged annual national scheme, open to historic houses, gardens, museums and heritage sites and celebrate the very best visitor experience.
Dan Snow, historian and broadcaster, presented the awards at Goldsmiths Hall in London, with around 100 guests, including owners and managers of the winning entries.
Eastnor has 12 magnificent bedrooms, which are available for groups who are hosting private parties, corporate events and weddings in the castle. The judges were particularly impressed with the attention to detail and the fact that Eastnor has risen to the challenge of refurbishing a listed building by squeezing bathrooms into obsolete linen cupboards and disguising the lift! The addition of such lavish bedrooms has significantly increased the appeal of the house, particularly for weddings. More »
