Relax at Whitney Court


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.
