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.

Visited on Wednesday Afternoon on Feb 2019 The drive in and the building is very impressive, even though it’s not old old you do half expect a dragon to fly over head (for game of throne watchers!) We were welcomed and shown to a table for two in a smallish room with small

Stayed here while on business in Chester and it certainly makes a change to the run of the mill hotels. Peckforton is well worth a stay, very quirky your guaranteed to get lost, friendly staff and ideal for business or pleasure.

I visited the spa today using a groupon deal, it was two treatments each and a glass of Prosecco for £65 each. Unfortunately they forgot our Prosecco, we only realized after leaving the spa. This was the only thing that stopped me giving 5 stars however. It was a beautiful spa

I would say smart-casual. Jackets for gentlemen but not necessarily ties; dresses for ladies but not evening dress.

"Maybe we should have upgraded to a better room"
"Make sure you state you want lift access unless you want to climb steps a lot!!"
"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"
US$ 238 - US$ 269 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
