It's not often you have the chance to become king - or queen - of the castle but here's your chance to do just that.
Caverswall Castle, in Staffordshire, is an extraordinary, historic Grade I listed moated castle with planning permission already granted for a wellbeing retreat with guest accommodation.
A decision is also expected shortly on a further application for unrestricted conference and accommodation, as well as a change of use to permit additional uses as guest accommodation, a meeting/lecture venue and as a film set location.
The castle, which is situate in the Staffordshire Moorlands is just a half an hour drive from Burton, and 20 minutes from Uttoxeter, and possesses a diverse and fascinating history.
The castle was built on the site of an Anglo-Saxon manor, on the spot where the two tributaries of the River Blythe rise.
After being initially owned by Ernulf de Hesing, the castle passed to Sir William de Caverswall and in 1275, and he incorporated the tributaries to form the impressive moat that surrounds this attractive build.
The beautiful interiors are mainly Jacobean, with original oak panelling in many rooms and large carved fireplaces. The Wedgwood family lived at Caverswall during the 1880s and during this time they added a decorative Wedgwood ceiling in the library.
The castle boasts an impressive array of both traditional and present day features.
Including the three converted turrets, the property contains a total of 11 spacious suites which all have en suite bathrooms, a sizeable kitchen and two drawing rooms.
There is also a billiards and games rooms, a library, wine cellar, workshop, gym, orangery and even an old dungeon - all set within 20 acres of attractive gardens and lakes that provide a fitting, dramatic setting.
The guide price of Caverswall Castle is £2.95 million and for more information, call the agent, Addison Mead on 01782 285948.
