Impressive catered castle sleeping up to 30, ideal for special occasions, celebrations and weddings near the Lake District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Augill Castle, Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria, sleeps 2-30 in 15 bedrooms.

Augill Castle is unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before. Think of your own country pile where creaking floorboards, ticking clocks and distant laughter take the place of piped music, hushed tones and false formality.

The multi-award winning castle (EnjoyEngland Guest Accommodation of the Year, Sunday Times 100 Ultimate British Hotels, Good Hotel Guide Cesar Award) excels at looking after families with many returning year after year, every time with a new generation in tow. As one guest wrote in 2017, there is something here for everyone from 2 to 80.

It's the relaxed home from home vibe which makes it a real hit and it's that same feeling that gives weddings at the castle such a magical feel and makes work getaways truly memorable and inspiring.

The castle has fifteen individually styled bedrooms and suites, fifteen acres of grounds to explore and glorious public rooms to enjoy. The dining room can seat up to 46 and private dinner parties are hosted in the drawing room.

The castle doesn't normally serve lunch but afternoon tea is a real highlight.

Augill really comes into its own when it is hired exclusively so that your party, celebration or meeting has the run of the castle with no non-resident guests with whom to have to share the magic.

The castle has an innovative bar -The Great British Bar - which celebrates all that is great about British artisan brewing, distilling, fermenting and pressing. The bar is regularly stocked with a rotating selection of drinks exclusively from small producers but, of course, if you're having a party and want something different, no problem.

Children (and adults) love the twelve seat art deco inspired cinema, the library full of games and dressing up clothes and outside there are gardens to explore with a fort in the trees, playground, tennis court, treehouse and chickens to feed.

Augill Castle is surrounded by world class landscapes with the Yorkshire Dales (1 mile away) and Lake District (4 miles away) national parks and the North Pennines AONB (1 mile away) all on the doorstep.
