Warwick Castle to open medieval-themed Knight’s Village

The Knight’s Village at Warwick Castle opens to guests on July 1, offering 28 medieval-themed lodges on the attraction’s 64-acre estate.

The 14 semi-detached timber-style lodges are set within a woodland glade next to the River Avon and just a few paces from the castle.

Woodland Lodges sleep up to five guests in two bedrooms – one double bed, one set of bunk beds, plus a pull out bed – and are set on one floor.

Knight’s Lodges sleep up to seven guests and are set across two storeys, including a mezzanine level with a galleried master bedroom.

Prices start from £40 per person per night including breakfast, two-day entry to the castle and themed evening entertainment.

A medieval feast with live entertainment is served in the banquet hall each evening for £18.95 per adult, £9.95 per child.

Knight’s Village offers year-round accommodation and all lodges offer en-suite facilities, TV, tea and coffee-making facilities, and central heating, with free wi-fi throughout.

Nick Blofeld, general manager at the Merlin Entertainments-owned attraction, said: “This is a new chapter for Warwick Castle as, from July 1, we’ll offer guests year-round lodge-style accommodation to complement the castle’s two sumptuous Tower Suites, set within the 14th century Caesar’s Tower, and our superb seasonal Mediaeval Glamping Village.”

Warwick Castle’s daily shows and attractions include the new Horrible Histories Maze, birds of prey displays, archery, live actor experiences such as The Castle Dungeon and The Princess Tower, The Mighty Trebuchet, The Great Hall and State Rooms, Kingmaker and Time Tower.
