We visited this place in 1986 before the renovations started and were impressed by the plans, BUT going back was so disappointing. The place is a mess. I am amazed that it is allowed to open on health and safety grounds alone. 4 coach parties were queueing for the cafe, so it appears to be making money but where it... More

We booked the Lookout appartment for a Friday to Sunday stay. We stayed alone on the Friday night before being joined on the Saturday by a couple who are friends. OK - we had read all the reviews beforehand and have also been along last year as day trippers so we knew what to expect. As other reviewers have said,... More

I was really looking forward to the castle visit and on approach, I was most impressed. The building and grounds were stunning,although the castle still needs a lot of TLC. However when you enter it looks like, as another reviewer perfectly put it, Steptoe's yard. Very little seemed to belong to this impressive building and it would have looked better... More

3rd time we have been to Chillingham Castle. We enjoy going there, as each time we go we feel something different in each room. The main rooms we felt any odd activity were the King Edward room, the Chapel and the torture chamber. Would thoroughly love to do an over night stay or Ghost tour. More tour guides wouldn't go...

This is our third stay at this castle and our second time in the Landseer Apartment. Its great staying in a real castle and feeling part of history. The apartment is well equipped with the highlight being the log fire. Its wonderful when you climb the stairs from the ground floor bedrooms and bathroom to the large living room and... More

This is a strange place yet very interestingly eccentric! Lots of fun and the quirkiness adds to your enjoyment. Wasn't sure what to make of it at first but thoroughly enjoyed the visit! Nice to see local people as guides and volunteers.The wild cattle were good to see and the warden very knowledgeable!

I'm off to one of my favourite places on Monday, Chillingham Castle! My wife and I have been staying at this Castle since 2006 and absolutely love the place. The place is filled with such amazing history and atmosphere. Our stay is always the most relaxing break we could ask for. However, I must comment on the review by "traveller... More

Firstly let me make myself clear: I love this castle. For many years I have been a visitor and a resident, back even to they days when it was only £25 per apartment! In recent years the prices have increased, as they should but the apartments have been neglected. Sadly the Chillingham experience has also suffered. What was once a... More
