Whitney Court is set in a stunning 1,000 acre private estate in Herefordshire, close to the Welsh border and just outside the beautiful market town of Hay-on-Wye.

The Whitney Court Estate dates back to the 6th Century and is linked to St Cyndir, a contemporary of King Arthur. In the early 13th Century, a new lordship was created for a knight, who took the name de Whitney and created a medieval castle within the Estate. It remained in the Whitney family until the Hope family purchased the Estate in 1897, and remain custodians to this day. The present Whitney Court was the third successor to the original castle, created in the Edwardian era by the Hope family as a revolutionary Neo-Jacobean manor, with one of the first private electricity systems in the UK.


The house is approached via wooden gates to a sweeping driveway with central fountain. The house is set in a 1,000 acre private estate, and is surrounded by parkland, woodland and beautiful gardens. The rear of the property there are several large, flat grass terraces, cascading down towards the River Wye, which can accommodate a marquee for up to 250 guests, with stunning far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside to the Black Mountains in the distance.
