What we think

"This place was a joy to visit, from our first spotting it, lights glowing along the long, dark windy road, to being encompassed by the warmth from the fabulous fires. Exploring the grounds proved to be enough to keep the girls occupied – in fact, we didn’t leave them."

About the owners

Simon and Wendy

We bought the castle 20 years ago as a near wreck and have dedicated our lives since to restoring it while raising our two children here. It’s still our family home today – we call it the hotel that isn’t, as it’s more like a home from home for our guests.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • With both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales right on the doorstep, there’s no end of walking, splashing, sliding and scrambling to be had.

  • For a little old-fashioned fun, take a steam-boat cruise on Coniston Water or Ullswater.

  • Winter sports lovers won’t want to miss the opportunity to ski or snowboard on real snow at Yad Moss, a 50-minute drive away.

  • Some easy (but rewarding) mountain climbing can be had at Cat Bells, close to Keswick.
