this is a magnificent castle, family owned , restored to its former glory by caring enthusiastic people. the staff are first class, the accommodation is exceptional and the whole experience is worthy at the very least of a visit. its not easy to find [well for me anyway] which adds to the experience. i will go back

Peckforton castle is a wonderful place. There are few places like it. The castle itself is beautiful, the rooms are unique and the food is great. The breakfast buffet is good too. Would visit here everyday if I could. Any visit should include a drink in the cellar bar in the evening

Went for a light lunch,Enjoy experience !!! Castle was lovely, food very nice, staff very welcoming, However I don't think I would hold my wedding there very pricey and not good value for money......I think there are much more nicer places for such a special day.......Peckforton Castle is great for a day out or over night romantic stay......Never my choice...

It was fabulous driving into the grounds and seeing the castle. There are birds of prey as you drive up to reception. The staff are so friendly in all areas from reception, bar, restaurant, room, nothing was too much trouble. The only thing I didn't like was having to serve myself for breakfast, I would have thought a hotel of... More

We got a deal through Secret Escapes, £300 for two nights including Bed, Breakfast and Dinner in the 1851 restaurant. The castle itself is unique, but the room was very small with a tiny bathroom - a shower only and no bath. The breakfast was very average with cheap sausages and bacon and a mediocre selection of fruit and cereals.... More

Amazing venue for friends wedding. Rooms where perfect. Food not so great. They need to sort that out as it totally let's it down. I was given a different meal than what was on the menu but it was changed. No night porter to be seen when I needed an early check out.

This hotel is a fabulous romantic wedding venue. The bed was very comfy, the staff were excellent - very friendly and efficient, couldn't fault them. The television in our room could have done with updating, the remote needed new batteries for sure. The coffee in the room was awful, again needs looking at. The spa was mediocre, not the best...

Our stay in Peckforton Castle was amazing. The location and the castle are something special. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The food was very good in the bar and breakfast was good too. I'm sure we'll return someday.

We stayed here for two nights on a package, so we ate in the 1851 restaurant both nights, it was quite expensive, and food was fine dining (so small portions) but very tasty and different from what we'd normally have, breakfast was a buffet though which pleased my partner no end. The room (a standard room) was a very good... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Peckforton Castle - An enchanting Hotel in the heart of Cheshire. Rising majestically above the Cheshire landscape, the castle is both enigmatic and enchanting. Originally the home of Lord Tollemache and built in the early 19th Century, this Grade I listed building is the only intact medieval style Castle in the country. Over the years the castle has been the location for numerous movies including Robin Hood and Dr Who. Now owned by the Naylor family, the stunning exterior has been complemented by a loving and considered restoration programme resulting in a magnificent hotel and venue offering contemporary luxury and impeccable service. Services include 47 stunning individual guest rooms, conference, events, and wedding facilities for up to 180. Tranquility beauty, on site Falconry and team activities all adding up to a rather magical experience. Dining at the Castle truly is a special occasion, welcoming the public as well as hotel guests. The 1851 Restaurant offers a dining experience fit for royalty. Holder of 2 AA Rosettes and a Taste Cheshire Award. Alternatively the more informal and cosmopolitan 2010 Brasserie, located in the former scullery of the castle, features many of the amazing features of the original scullery including two cast iron cooking ranges dating back to the 1840's. Peckforton Castle's enchanting medieval style beauty and stunning location make it a truly impressive and desirable venue for weddings, christenings, birthday parties, or just about anything that's worth celebrating. Everything plays a part; the fabulous setting, stunning location, the attentive service and smiling faces, the bespoke menus and decorations. A magnificent venue for conferencing and meetings. Within the medieval walls, old and new combine seamlessly to offer state of the art multi media and conference facilities. Captivating on arrival, Peckforton Castle's unspoilt, natural beauty will stimulate and motivate, delight the eye, inspire the mind, tantalise the taste buds and leave you enchanted. ... more   less
