In our opinion, the best preserved Norman Castle in England.
The 900 year old Norman keep of Hedingham Castle stands in 160 acres of spectacularly beautiful landscaped gardens and woodland where the Lindsay family, descendants of the original owners, the De Veres, still live.
The first Aubrey de Vere, Lord of Ver in Normandy, had come over with William the Conqueror. He planted vineyards and wild red grapes which still grow in the grounds. He founded the priory of Earl’s Colne and became a monk after the death of his wife, who bore five sons
Hedingham Castle is not just one place. Romantic, beautiful, ancient, historic and wild, it is somewhere to set your imagination free. Privately owned, its character is unique, and its history is the heritage of us all.
