Bolebroke castle

Bolebroke Castle is a 15th-century hunting lodge located north of the village of Hartfield, East Sussex, England. It is a grade II* listed building.[1]

Built around 1480, it is said to be the earliest brick-built building in Sussex.[by whom?] Henry VIII is said to have stayed at Bolebroke when he went hunting for wild boar and deer in nearby Ashdown Forest. It lies only 5 miles (8.0 km) from Hever Castle and was the base from which King Henry conducted his courtship of Anne Boleyn.[2]

The house was used as a location in the 2008 film The Other Boleyn Girl. [2]

The Bolebroke Castle Miniature Railway was located within the castle grounds.
