Augill Castle Information


Augill Castle is a relaxed place to stay in a truly extravagant Victorian Gothic building. With turrets, castellations, vaulted ceilings, huge rooms, stately fireplaces and wonderful wooden floors, the castle was built to impress. Bedrooms are huge, as are most of our bathrooms and you will find four poster beds, four poster baths, grand pianos, floor to ceiling arched windows, stained glass, Elizabethan panelling and other lovely features. There are two beautiful sitting rooms and an honesty bar too. 15 acres of grounds include a tennis court. And set at the foot of the Pennines, surrounded by the Lakeland Fells and Yorkshire Dales, Augill certainly has a pretty setting. Rescued from near ruin by the Bennett family in 1998, it is run with genuine warmth and friendliness and is a wonderful place to spend time with loved ones. The Bennett's run the castle in an informal style so that you are not staying in a room, but more sharing a whole castle. Not all our rooms are suitable for dogs so please contact us before you book if you want to bring your pooch!
