Has anyone been ?  Absolutely gorgeous and quaint.  I could actually see Anne Boleyn growing up there.  The gardens rival Hampton Court.

I spent a day there, many years ago, on my honeymoon. Gorgeous, gorgeous fairytale castle.

i remember eating at the castle cafeteria.
half empty,with some grey sausages that we were too scared of for ordering (even if we were starving after the long walk to the castle and trough the gardens)-
we ended up ordering a sort of hever castle happy meal, but the waitress told us: it's for children.
and we asked: for children only? so we can't order it??
and she,now bright red, said yes,if you want it...and gave us a plastic pin with a knight on it, a "toy" that was given with the happy meal.

i still have that pin, somewhere

Hever is one of my favorite historic stately homes to visit in England. Unfortunately a few decades back a prior owner built a convention center/hotel on the property, which I consider to be a complete barbarism.

Hever is one of my favorite historic stately homes to visit in England. Unfortunately a few decades back a prior owner built a convention center/hotel on the property, which I consider to be a complete barbarism.

I was just there in August 2019 and there was no convention center/hotel on the property. The cottages behind the castle itself are available to rent for overnight stays, but other than that there is only the castle and the beautiful gardens, which have a quaint little shop where you can purchase gardening utensils, flowers, and seeds, and then a little cafe with just a couple of tables where you can purchase ice cream and drinks. The cafe sits right near the lake on the property; it's all very tranquil and very queen, and you feel quite removed from the world when there. There is also a delightful church, dating to Tudor times (and perhaps even earlier, if memory serves) right next door to the castle, that adds to the feeling of having stepped back in time. It's a beautiful place to visit.
