Augill Castle Cumbria

“Standing between the Lake District and the Dales rests this eccentric castle welcoming all the family into the countryside and the Eden Valley. Four poster beds and antique furnishings make up the comfortable rooms. Restaurant is open on weekends. Great hideaway and local exploring to be done. ”

Photo of Augill Castle

“Stunningly set in the Eden Valley, this eccentric mid-Victorian-folly-castle is equidistant between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales and makes a refreshingly different base. Owners Simon and Wendy Bennett are warms hosts in an eclectic home stuffed with antiques and curios, four posters and roll top baths. Dinner (on request) is communal, around a huge oak table and breakfast is a leisurely affair. Dogs and children welcomed. Augill Little Cooks, cookery courses for kids, have proved a great hit.”

Written by  Fiona Duncan

They say

“Augill Castle is unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before. Famously family friendly with a laid back atmosphere, it has all the trappings of a country house without the stuffiness.”
