This stunning manor house is steeped in Welsh and English history. You’ll be surrounded by heavy oak doors, ancient stone walls, spiral staircases, four poster beds, and spectacular antiques.
The Manor is approximately 800 years old and although it was once owned by King Henry VIII, he did not live here. The Manor is steeped in history and this is reflected in its appearance and decor with heavy oaked doors, tapestries, ancient stone walls, stone spiral staircases, open log fires and bread ovens.
Earliest recorded history of the Manor has been traced back to between 1136 and 1205 and the reign of King Henry I. During the reigns of King Stephen & Queen Matilda the Augustinian monks of Llanthony Prima Priory in Monmouthshire sought refuge at Llanthony Secunda in Gloucestershire and the Manor house in Caldicot.
King Henry VIII owned Llanthony Secunda Manor in 1536 when he also acquired large amounts of land following dissolution of the monasteries. Clement Dace was appointed as Henry's bailiff and farmer, in 1540 and it is believed he lived in the Manor. In 1557 the Manor was sold to Richard Seyborne for the sum of £174.5s.6d.
The activity at the Manor comes in many forms. The sound of chanting quite often rings from the bedrooms, which once housed the monks of the manor. It has been reported that recent renovations of the property have started a series of unexplained activity, including items being moved around the manor, guests being touched by unseen hands and full bodied apparitions of a lady in white and also a monk. Don’t worry our experienced team will be there to guide and assist you.
