Wedmore Place is located on Wessex Hundred, a 300 acre farm settled in 1615. The farm, overlooking the James River, is near Jamestown which with Yorktown and Williamsburg make up the “Historic Triangle”. Wedmore Place was designed to provide the ambience of a European Country Estate surrounded by acres of vineyards, forest and meadowlands giving guests the relaxation and peacefulness of quiet country living. Settle yourself in one of 28 individually designed rooms and suites. All guests will enjoy a sumptuous retreat with period antiques, European bedding and luxurious linens. Each room was themed in the style of a different European province, not only in the selection of colors and furnishings, but also the wall hangings and decoration. All rooms have a fireplace (availability of fire is based on season and temperature), individual floor designs from Spanish tiles to walnut parquet, 10’ ceilings and king size beds. The style of each room reflects not only a different geographical area but also different periods of history; from the Corinthian room inspired by the classic Greek forms of Antiquity featuring a large marble statue, Corinthian columns, large white ceramic tiling on the floor, to the rustic room recalling the Shakespearean times with a four poster bed next to the eaves in the wood paneled Cotswold room.
