Augill Castle: A very English castle
Where Yorkshire meets the Lake District
A castle unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before.
There is nowhere quite like England and nothing quite like staying in an English castle.
Not just a place to stay: A slice of genuine, quietly groovy, mildly eccentric English country house living.
- The Quirky Traveller, July 2012
"Picture a traditional castle with its Victorian Gothic towers, huge windows and original staircases, you've pretty much got Augill Castle.
- Red Online, March 2012
Augill Castle between the Lake District & Yorkshire Dales is neither a conventional hotel nor simply a B&B and, above all else, not a place for taking yourself, us or life too seriously.
We run the castle, our family home, in a modern and informal style with relaxed family friendly service, award winning guest accommodation, honest food and a genuine desire to create a comfortable place to unwind.
Perfect for relaxed couples, happy families, unstuffy shooting parties, informal meetings and intimate weddings.
"Simply the best: The best B&B in England"
- The Times & Sunday Times, April 2009
"What a lovely, friendly, Gothic retreat"
- The Times' Cool Hotel Guide, Christmas 2011
Simple pleasures are the most important: a divine bed, top quality linen, great shower above a deep bath and a top quality breakfast.
The castle, modelled on nearby Lowther Castle, sits between Kirkby Stephen and Appleby in the Eden Valley where the Yorkshire Dales roll down in to Cumbria towards the Lake District.
Anything goes at Augill except hushed tones and false formality.
