I was aware of the great history attached to this castle and I also knew that the building lay open to the elements from 1933 to 1982/3 after the lead was stripped off the avoid death duties but I was not prepared for the disorganised, almost shambolic state, of most of the rooms. I accept it must still be a... More

Save your money, don't go there. There is a long trek on an unmade road from the car park to the castle, muddy when wet. The castle is full of disorganised junk in cluttered untidy dirty rooms. The artefacts so often seem to have no relevance to their location and position, although to be honest it would be difficult to... More

I have always wanted to visit Chillingham Castle and a few days ago I finally got there. First impressions were very good with free car park, grand gardens and impressive exterior to the house. On entry I was offered for sale a rather old fashioned style paper information booklet as opposed to the attractive sleek productions that seemingly all the... More

I have stayed at this castle on many occasions but it was the first time for my husband we stayed in the courtyard apartment as I have always stayed in the dairy. Once again the apartments was very clean and with the usual fully functional kitchen. This place is ideal for a relaxing break you can come and go as... More

My wife and I visited the castle on Thursday 11th June a beautiful sunny day, on arrival we found the gates to the castle were closed, all be it we were fifteen minutes early, The outside of the castle looked spectacular, the grounds well maintained, The castle itself was very disappointing with no explanation to any of the pieces on...

Well, what can I say.. I've told Graham (Chillingham Paranormal Group) how this castle draws me back constantly and I can't just put my finger on why.... After organising a private ghosthunt last year with folks from Ireland, I organised a return trip earlier this year... The place is fantastic and so authentic, beautifully restored to its former glory by... More

Visited this 'real' castle last Friday. What a treat! Having done some prior research I knew this castle was a crumbling ruin back in 1982 when Sir Humphry Wakefield bought and practically rebuilt it and made it his family home through link by marriage into the Grey family. It's a pity that some of these negative reviewers fail to realise... More

I had to come and write a review on this castle, we have been on many occasions, during the day, and at night on vigils and ghost tours, and we love the place, the staff are friendly, the food is lovely, and the castle is full of atmosphere and steeped with history.. cannot recommend it enough.
