Ok, NOT really... but kinda! This pace is soo amazing. From top to bottom and left to right - hands down the best place I stayed in all of England. Their beds (Europe has stiff beds) were heavenly soft. The food, the people and all the help made it a lovely escape. I cannot wait to come again!

We stayed one night on route to family further North and wished it had been longer! wonderful comfortable beds, informal staff who obviously loved working there and it showed in the way they treated the castle's guests. High tea, platters on the evening and a fantastic breakfast made to order ( so no overdone food laying around) and an 'honesty... More

Lovely unique stay with my family of grown up children and grandchildren. Comfortable beds and welcoming treats for us all. It was new year and Xmas trees were still beautifully decorated. Log fires and wonderful discreet hospitality. Even an in house cinema. My only moan was that the central heating needed to be kept on as the house was quite... More

A two night stay in Derwent and Raisebeck rooms at Augill with our 1 and 3 year old was fantastic. Great location - easy to find. The castle, bedrooms, furniture, food, dinning room and grounds were brilliant as was the bar, cinema and library spaces. We hope we are responsible parents and we ensured our kids were well behaved all... More

We're keen Landmarkers, often staying in historic and unusual buildings on a self-catering basis. Augill Castle managed to combine the fun of a Landmark property with the complete relaxation of letting someone else take care of everything. The owners describe it as "unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before" and they do manage to pull off an unusual combination of... More

I found this castle when searching for lodging while we did a short tour of northern England. I am so glad we booked. We showed up very late at nite since we got lost, I did call to let them know we were on our way, the owners were very welcoming even though it was late. Our room was amazing... More

We had the most wonderful stay a few years ago, and were very keen to return. Its still wonderfully quiet and retains very much its own charm. And the rooms and breakfasts were very good. But service had slipped, possibly because the owners weren't there for most of our stay - things certainly tightened up when they were back. It... More

Dear Hobbits We're so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your return visit as much as your first. Our staff are regularly praised as being our greatest asset. As you no doubt intend your belated review to be of use to future guests accuracy is key so it's worth mentioning that your description of our food during August is misleading.... More

If you're looking for non-traditional accommodations with a twist Augill Castle is your place. A group of friends and I stayed there in chilly May 2015 and were quite pleased with the accommodations. The atmosphere is that of a true castle, fireplaces, antiques and a fabled ghost! The rooms are immaculately clean as are the bathrooms. Speaking of, each room... More

My wife and I have just spent a very chilled weekend at Augill Castle celebrating her birthday......despite Storm Desmond trying his hardest to dampen the occasion. We stayed in the Pendragon room and I have to say its the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in outside of the one we have at home! The room itself is amazing... More
