Introduction Named after Emma Dent (née Brocklehurst), who started the restoration of Sudeley Castle in the 19th Century, there is a real sense of history about this pretty, light and airy cottage. It is to Emma Dent that we owe the splendour of Sudeley Castle as it stands today. For almost half a century she dedicated her life to the Castle, building the Jubilee Buildings of the West Wing, the North Tower, the two gate lodges and the present entrance to the Estate, as well as laying out the gardens, including planting the magnificent yew hedges. The accommodation is arranged over two floors. Guests enter from a covered porch into a hallway area, with handy coat hooks, then pass through to the open-plan dining-kitchen area, with a large window in the kitchen overlooking the woods.
