The Space

A warm welcome to The Castle, a truly exceptional Grade II* castle which is steeped in history since the early 1700s. Nestled away in the Durham countryside and sitting within 14 acres of land surrounded by a nature reserve, this is the ideal place to escape from the modern world and indulge with friends and family, for holidays, long weekends or reunion get-togethers. Whether that be sitting by one of the many fireplaces with a good page-turner or retreating to the dungeon for a drink in it’s own self service bar.

Large enough to be stately, small enough to be intimate, walking through the doors of The Castle is to feel relaxed and comfortable within one of England’s most unique and beautiful places.

The dungeon is fashioned with wrought iron gates, and hosts multiple rooms spanning the entire footprint of the Castle.

The truly exceptional main entrance hall greets you with an elegant sweeping staircase. A real showstopper for entertaining, creating a feel for the rest of the property. The formal dining room equally offers a wonderful setting for self-catered dining and seats up to 32 guests, ideal for a special celebration.

The sleeping quarters include 11 beautifully decorated bedrooms spread over three floors with 12 bathrooms. Plenty of room for large groups. All bedding, linen and towels are provided.
