Stay in an English Castle

Breaking the mould of the traditional

Come home to your own castle

If you’ve ever wanted to call a castle home, Augill Castle is a very different sort of place to stay. A family run castle 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.

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. Enjoy 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 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 you will enjoy an experience which will stay with you forever. Anything goes at Augill Castle other than hushed tones and false formality.
