Certificate of Excellence
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 48 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 3 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.

Fabulous Hotel . Staff very helpful. Food very tasty well presented hotel. Plenty of activities such as Archery Shooting or relax in the spa again with plenty of packages to choose from. Lovely grounds for a short or longer walk. Breakfast could be Warner but plenty of choice.

We visited the castle on Wednesday 12th December about 3pm for afternoon tea. Our little girl was with us and the waiting on staff were so helpful! They bought her some separate sandwiches which were more suitable without us even asking and both staff were very attentive. It's lo

We stayed last Sunday to celebrate our anniversary- what a terrible experience.

It started with the castle not being very well sign posted from the main road. Then, missing the post and realising that we could park/drop off by reception when we were walking uphill from the mudd

We stayed on a sunday night before our new arrival for some chill time together.
Gorgeous place and food was lovely however worst night sleep ever! very noisy due to wedding party and room feeling like it was on a walkway. Woke at 2am by drunk guests shouting and banging outside

If it was not for our Sons buying us this Afternoon Tea gift, I would never have thought about coming here. What a lovely place. We only came for the afternoon tea, but there are many other areas to take advantage of. Hotel, Restaurant, Land Rover driving experiences, Archery,

Hey, going for my Brothers wedding this weekend from Dublin and I know this might sound silly but does anyone know what lagers are on tap? Do they do HopHouse 13 or any other premium or is it all Fosters, Carling etc.? Thanks, Douglas J
Hi Douglas, The lagers we have on tap are San Miguel and a Manchester JWLees Lager. Bottled lagers we have are corona & peroni. Many thanks, Ellen

Hi our daughter is thinking of viewing/booking this as her wedding venue. We have heard and read mixed reviews regarding the quality of accommodation are the rooms very tired? Also have heard that there have been issues concerning food poisoning at a wedding admittedly that was 3 years ago? Not sure if caterers have changed since then ?
Hi I could not fault the food at all and the venue is a fantastic location our bedroom was small the bed was a small double and had no air con so it was uncomfortable

There is an a la carte option with a range of dishes and prices that are not surprisingly comparatively expensive.

"We had a Classic room which was very luxurious and comfortable. Ask for one which overlooks the green"
"There are a lot of stairs in this hotel, but it is a Grade 1 Listed Building, so not that easy to add lifts!"
"Some rooms are a way from reception with difficult stair access so if less mobile do ask before arrival or at check-in"
"The Beaston is a fabulous room with four poster bed and roll top bath. Luxurious."
"Check the room meets your needs and agility."
