Stay in an English Castle


You’re looking for some time away where everything isn’t grey or beige. What you love about travelling is meeting new people, having new experiences so you need to know as much about the personalities or the people or the feel of the place as the facilities. There’s a group of you so you need somewhere really interested in giving you a unique experience. You’re travelling with several generations, what is everyone going to do? You need a place that understands your family dynamic and can make everyone feel relaxed. You need reassurance the children will feel as at home as you. You want a place to get married that you call your own where your rules are more important than theirs. You want to find a place to re-charge, forget Brexit or Trump where you feel you can belong. Sound familiar? Then read on.


Stay in a castle you can call your own

It’s not too early to start planning your best ever Christmas & New Year in 2018

Here is a unique chance to stay in a castle. Whether you want a small and beautiful place to be married, are looking for some quality time away on your own, as a couple or 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 on the very edge of England’s two favourite national parks, it’s our 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 castle wedding or a castle house party everyone will be talking about for years. Is Augill right for you?

Augill Castle is an exciting place to stay for a new breed of guest looking for an authentic experience: unstuffy, informal, decadently comfortable and famously family friendly There’s something for everyone from The Great British Bar to the cinema to our famous Little Augill Cooks and Augill Family Cooks cookery school as well as quality time and space, so kick back and relax knowing this is where you belong.

As well as towers, turrets and castellations, we’ve got

But most of all we give you the chance to feel unburdened by the world outside. Anything goes at Augill Castle other than hushed tones and false formality, creating unique stays for unique guests. And if you can’t keep the love all to yourself, a castle experience makes a perfect gift

The castle has inspired two novels – Undressed For Dinner, Lakeland Book of the Year 2014 and Stop For Breakfast, published October 2016. Find out more here.
