Littlecote House is in the heart of the Berkshire countryside. Henry VIII wooed Jane Seymour here, Charles II and William of Orange wined and dined under the very same roof. Now it's your turn to be entertained in the royal surroundings of this Grade 1 Tudor mansion. In the grounds of Littlecote lie the remains of an ancient Roman villa and there are 40 acres of landscaped gardens to explore. A wide range of inclusive day time activities are on offer plus leisure facilities and included entertainment.
