Christmas and New Year in a castle

Celebrate Christmas & New Year in a castle

Augill Castle could have been built for Christmas. Imagine afternoon teas in front of roaring fires, tables laden with the best food and drink, Christmas trees touching the ceilings and candles, holly and ivy on every mantle. Heres what we’ve got planned for Christmas in 2018. If you’re planning a New Year house party or celebration, we’ve got that all wrapped up too!

Christmas 2018 : Bespoke just for you

The castle is available for a single group. Arrive on Christmas Eve for afternoon tea and then have the castle all to yourselves until after breakfast on December 27.

Create the bespoke country house Christmas of your dreams: Eat what you like when you like, be as active or as lazy as you wish, it’ll be entirely your party with nobody else’s schedule but your own to worry about, all in the company of the people who mean the most to you. We will be here to look after you but you will feel you have the castle to yourselves. The Great British Bar will be yours to explore.

Our exclusive hire Christmas in a castle is £16,800 for three nights based on twenty guests in ten bedrooms. Please contact us for a bespoke quote if you’d like a larger party (we can include a further five bedrooms taking your party to thirty) or a longer stay.

What you’ll get:

  • the castle fully decorated
  • fully serviced accommodation for three nights
  • all meals – menus and timing chosen by you
  • no washing-up
  • selected wine and beer with meals, champagne & soft drinks
  • a few surprises courtesy of Father Christmas
  • roaring fires and as many logs as you need to keep them going

Your only extra will be spirits which will be charged as consumed.

We can help with entertainment and activities. This truly is a bespoke Christmas tailored to bring your dreams to life.

Dining at Augill Castle

An alternative Christmas 2018 : In a box!

Enjoy everything that’s magical about Christmas in a castle for a little bit less. We can provide all of the above ready prepared for you to cook yourselves with full instructions, offering you the ultimate flexibility for your celebrations. we’ll come in and wash up on Boxing Day but other than that we’ll leave you to it so you won’t even have to get out of your pyjamas. Please contact us to find out more if this sounds like your kind of thing.

The magic of Augill really comes alive at this time of year

As well as Christmas and New Year themselves we host Christmas parties with a difference throughout December. Choose from our suggested menus or create your own. Parties of ten or more can enjoy a private table in the Dining Room or exclusive use of the Drawing Room. For smaller groups, join in on one of our long oak banqueting tables. Alternatively, come for a seasonal afternoon tea or arrange a private film and supper night in our art deco cinema with your own choice of film.

Also watch out for details of Father Christmas’s grotto and, for one year only to celebrate 20 years at the castle we’re staging the first (and probably last) ever Augill Panto!
