Justin and I are going to Birmingham to watch the Arsenal soccer game next weekend. I looked for a Historic Castle Hotel and this is what came up. I feel in love and had to stay there. So next weekend we pack up and go for a little adventure in a castle!! I can't wait to take photos of this place and the gardens!!
Studley was a anglo-saxon settlement mentioned in the Doomsday book servey (1086), where an old castle was built on a site near the present St Mary's church. Thought to have been a 17th century building it was ruinous when Francis Lyttleton-Holyoake purchased the adjoining land in the 1833
