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 £13,430 for three nights based on twenty guests in ten bedrooms with all of the below included. contact us for further details.

What you’ll get:

  • the castle fully decorated
  • fully serviced accommodation for three nights

  • 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

Dining at Augill Castle

An alternative Christmas 2018 : In a box!

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.
