Augill Castle, Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria, sleeps 2-30 in 15 bedrooms.

At Augill we do small and beautiful where intimacy and privacy and relaxed vibe are the key ingredients so your perfect wedding is just you and the people you love.

Whether you’d like a lavish two day wedding house party with the castle exclusively yours or a private afternoon ceremony followed by a decadent afternoon tea, we can deliver the wedding of your dreams. There are no set formulas, no two Augill weddings are the same; it’s your day not ours and we take great pleasure in making it personal to you. The only elements of an Augill Castle wedding that are always the same are the intimacy and privacy of the venue, the beauty of your surroundings, the friendliness and un-stuffiness of the people who look after you.

We have been hosting weddings at Augill for nearly twenty years so we’ve a pretty good idea of what works, but it’s your day so we’ll work with you with as much help as you need to plan the perfect celebration.

There are few castles you can truly call your own. Exclusive use of a castle is the stuff of dreams – your dreams – a castle of your very own to share with nobody but your family and friends. Here is a place you can truly feel you belong for the happiest day of your life.

Augill is perfect at any time of year. Our beautiful grounds are perfect for a summer evening barbecue with cocktails on the terrace for the eve of your wedding, and in winter how about a full afternoon tea with hot buttered crumpets to welcome your weekend guests washed down with a hot toddy or a glass of mulled English cider or a winter cup?

Next day you’ll wake up relaxed for the big day in a castle filled with your favourite people.

Everything is bespoke so your day will be unique to you.
