Holidays (Self Catering) in Gloucester
WHITMINSTER HOUSE is listed Grade II*, and is a charming example of a family home that has evolved over the centuries.
The Manor dates from Saxon times and is mentioned in Domesday Book. It was confiscated by Maud, wife of William the Conqueror, from the Saxon thegn (Lord) Brictric, and subsequently owned by the Earls of Hereford and later by Henry V as part of the Duchy of Lancaster. In 1288 it was a Manor House described as 'the Lord's Court'; and in 1336 was known as a 'Chief House' with a courtyard. In 1347 the Earl of Hereford asked the King's permission to fortify it. In 1721 Whitminster House was bought by the Cambridge family. Their son, Richard Owen Cambridge, made all the 18th century alterations. The TEESDALEs (in whose ancestry Maud is listed) `bought back` WHITMINSTER HOUSE in 1882, made the Victorian additions, and live here to the present day.
Ideal for groups of friends and families, corporate away days, considerate stag and hen parties, short term business accommodation and receptions to celebrate over the full weekend.
