Peckforton Castle

Peckforton Castle, set on a hillside above the rolling Cheshire Plain, is a magnificent Victorian country house built by Lord Tollemache in 1844 in the style of a Medieval Castle. In fact you may recognise the imposing red sandstone walls, the marble floors and luxurious velvet curtains, the vaulted dining rooms, chandeliers and open fires and the candlelit Wine Cellar… as they have featured in films such as Robin Hood and Doctor Who 1973 and 2007.

Now the Castle opens its doors as a luxury hotel, with beautiful newly refurbished bedrooms, all with rich brocades and many with original fireplaces, radiating warmth and comfort. From executive rooms with extra space to four posters and suites for a romantic break, there is a wide range to choose from. Why not experience bygone times in one of the truly magical chambers and enjoy the lovely country surroundings, with protected woodland and a variety of wildlife.

Take advantage of a unique 4x4 experience, visit nearby Beeston Castle, Oulton Park or the Blue Planet, Britain’s largest aquarium. Not forgetting that Peckforton Castle is not only famous for being the only Grade I listed – and lived in - Medieval Style Castle in the United Kingdom but is also home to the 1851 restaurant with an enviable reputation for quality food and fine wines.

The spectacular castle with fantastic panoramic views invites you to celebrate your special occasions within its stunning, fortified walls. From dream weddings to conferences to dinner parties, any event will be enhanced if it takes place in this most breathtaking venue, within these utterly picturesque surroundings. The Castle also specialises in Medieval Banquets in the Great Baronial Hall or the majestic Hexagonal Dining room, with Medieval Jesters and musicians, staff dressed in period costume and traditional food served on locally made pottery.
