Sudeley Castle

Sudeley Castle, near Winchcombe, Gloucestershire

Extracts from Wikipedia
In 1442, Ralph Boteler who was created Baron Sudeley by Henry VI, built the actual castle on its present site. In 1469 Edward IV confiscated the castle and gave it to his brother, the Duke of Gloucester (later Richard III) who used the castle as a base for the Battle of Tewkesbury.

After Richard's death at the Battle of Bosworth it passed to the new king, Henry VII, who then gave it to his uncle, Jasper Tudor, Duke of Bedford. By the time Henry VIII succeeded, the castle was the property of the Crown again. He in turn left it to his son, Edward VI, who gave it to his uncle, Thomas Seymour who he made Lord of Sudeley.

In 1547 Thomas married Edward's stepmother Catherine Parr and they moved into Sudeley, accompanied by Lady Jane Grey. The Lady Elizabeth Tudor was also a guest at Sudeley during her stepmother's marriage to Seymour.
Thomas began to renovate the castle for Catherine's use and it was here in 1548 that Catherine became pregnant and gave birth to her daughter, Lady Mary Seymour, only to die seven days later. Catherine was buried in the Chapel.

Elizabeth I was entertained three times at Sudeley and in 1592 a spectacular three-day feast was held to celebrate the anniversary of the defeat of the Armada.

The current owners are Elizabeth, Lady Ashcombe, wife of Henry Edward Cubitt, 4th Baron Ashcombe, and her children Henry and Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst.

This sounds like an wonderful festival and Katherine Parr is an amazing Tudor queen, having outlived Henry VIII and being stepmother to the young Elizabeth I in her formative years. Sudeley Castle sounds like a fantastic place to visit as well. Thank you for the information, CarolynHarris.

Yes, she is. Henry Edward Cubitt, 4th Baron Ashcombe is Camilla's uncle. He is the son of Roland Cubitt, 3rd Baron Ashcombe and Sonia Rosemary Keppel - Camilla's grandparents. The Baron's wife - Elizabeth, Lady Ashcombe - is the widow of Mark Dent-Brocklehurst, the heir to Sudeley Castle. After his death, his widow and two children inherited the castle.
