Augill Castle is situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, close to the Lake District and at the foot of the North Pennines. It was bought in 1997 by Simon and Wendy Bennett who live there with their two children. Years of hard work and a lot of love have brought it back to its former glory.
There are 14 bedrooms or family suites, some with four poster beds. It’s quirky, cool, and has heaps of character. Architectural features are everywhere – turrets, stained glass windows, panelled walls and huge dramatic windows make Augill a very special place to stay.
It's a family-friendly place where parents can relax knowing that their children are having an equally good time. Outside, you'll find a playground, tennis court, a fort in the forest, and a tree house. Inside there's a library of videos and DVDs, a games room, toys for all ages and a whole castle complete with towers and turrets to explore.
Simon and Wendy know how to make life easier for parents on holiday – there's cots, high chairs, baby listening, and flexible eating options (adult and children's dietary whims are accommodated). Family bedrooms all come equipped with a box of books, toys and essential baby and toddler supplies, as well as nappy disposal units for younger visitors.
Your two-night stay will be in one of the family rooms (suitable for two adults and two children) and will include breakfast on both mornings.
