Stay in a castle

Live like a King (or Queen!)

Step back in time to the days of knights and fair maidens, when castles were vital to the defence of a kingdom. Visiting historic castles is undoubtedly a highlight of any trip to Britain, but if you really want to live Britain's heritage, why not stay overnight?

Royal connections

Staying in a castle is an experience you'll never forget. Imagine yourself as a king or queen, a lord or lady. You can stay in an apartment in Hampton Court, Henry VIII's palace on the banks of the Thames, or spend a night in the Garden House of Powis Castle, a spectacular medieval castle that was home to Welsh princes. Imagine pledging your allegiance to royalty north of the border by staying in Traquair Castle, Scotland's oldest inhabited house, originally owned by the kings of Scotland.

Steeped in history

Wherever your visit to Britain takes you, you're never far from a castle reflecting thousands of years of human occupation. If only their walls could talk, what tales they would tell! Amberley Castle, for example, has stood in the West Sussex countryside for over 900 years, originally beginning life as a hunting lodge for the Bishops of Chichester. A later owner was Queen Elizabeth I, who held the lease from 1588 to 1603.

20th century newcomers!

Jumping forward in time to a 20th-century building; Bovey Castle, set within 368 square miles of the Dartmoor National Park in South West England, is an Edwardian mansion built in 1906 that has been transformed into a prestigious holiday retreat.  The castle promises to have the ambience of a permanent house-party of the 1920s and 30s - a touch of Agatha Christie, the Orient Express and Hercule Poirot all rolled into one.

Wales - Land of Castles

Wales is renowned as the 'Land of Castles'. Conquering Normans were the first castle builders, constructing strongholds in strategic locations along the coast and deep in the mountains. You really can be king or queen of your own castle when you stay at Penhow Castle in South Wales, the oldest lived-in castle in Wales dating from the 17th century, where you can be assured of a good night's sleep in Penhow's one guestroom featuring an Edwin Lutyens bed.

Celebrity favourites

The reason Madonna chose Skibo Castle, in the highlands of Scotland for her wedding is no mystery. Exclusive and luxurious, with its own golf course, beauty spa and Victorian conservatory pool, what more could you ask for.

Be treated like royalty

Exclusive Castle Rentals offer the chance to take up residence in a castle or stately home which becomes yours exclusively for your stay.  Be pampered by your very own butler or be catered for by your own chef - be treated like a king or queen for the day.
