We stayed the weekend at the castle for my wife's 50th Birthday and we both totally loved everything about it. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the staff and Cathy in particular was so helpful and nothing was to much trouble to get us settled in. Our accommodation was the Landseer apartment which is a wonderful and relaxing place... More

We stayed at Chillingham Castle for one night as we were booked on to the ghost tour. Having never been before but having visited a number of castles/historic buildings I can safely say that this is the best castle I have ever been to. It is so authentic, steeped in interesting history and the apartment we stayed in, the Grey,... More

I visited this Castle using a Groupon voucher and that was the best I can say; at least I didn't pay full price! To be clear, I did not stay at the Hotel so cannot comment on that. However, the castle was an eclectic mix of old and new, interesting and cringe-worthy i.e. Armour, weapons, a full size plastic horse,... More

It was October when we stayed for just two nights in Chillingham castle, in the grey Rooms. Wonderful space once up there, steep climb that took effort especially with bags, but funny experience all the same which could be laughed off as its not every day one has such a challenging spiralling climb so it was nice. There were five... More

This is a lovely picturesque castle and gardens. If you love history and historical items, then it is a nice place to visit. Bearing in mind it is 800 years old and still in a good reasonable state. For me worth the money

Me and my family visited at 2.30 in the afternoon during half term. On arrival we were charged £23 and left to wander around what can only be described as an old and dirty home. It was cold and uninviting and everything, like previously stated, seemed to have just been dumped there as there was no where else to put... More

Chillingham castle is an excellent place to go for a fun family day out. I Certainly felt an atmosphere when I arrived, My friend claimed she was tapped on the leg walking up the steps into the dining hall, It was quite an unsettling place to be I was spooked out the whole way round, probably just the fears getting...

The castle is full of mix matched, unlinked clutter, I'd have preferred the castle to be empty to get a real feel of the history, not any explanation of rooms. Saying that the gardens and grounds are stunning. Seems like the owners are money orientated and don't particularly care about the interior of the castle.
