Whether you want a small and beautiful place to be married, are looking for some quality time away as a couple or with the family or need a place to let your hair down for a weekend Augill Castle is a place you can call home, a very different sort of place to stay. Set in some of England’s most glorious countryside between The Lake District and The Yorkshire Dales, it’s our family home and it can be yours too. Come for a couple of nights away, a family holiday or hire the whole castle for a fun and laid back wedding or a castle house party everyone will be talking about for years. Is Augill right for you?

“Kick off your wellies at the front door without causing a scandal”

“Unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before”

Augill Castle is an exciting place to stay for a new breed of guest looking for a authentic hospitality: unstuffy, informal but decadently comfortable. It’s laid back shabby chic with the freedom to kick back and relax with a sense of belonging. We’ve got fabulous bedrooms with great beds, many four posters, and deep baths. We serve lazy breakfasts, scrumptious afternoon teas and delicious, hearty, comforting dinners and suppers.

But most of all we give you the chance to feel rooted, to belong, to feel comfortable, relaxed and unburdened by the world outside. We are somewhere completely different from the norm, creating unique stays for unique guests. If you share our passion for genuine encounters you will enjoy an experience which will stay with you forever. Anything goes at Augill Castle other than hushed tones and false formality.

The castle has inspired two novels – Undressed For Dinner, Lakeland Book of the Year 2014 and Stop For Breakfast, due for publication in Summer 2016. Find out more here.
