You arrive at Peckforton Castle via a long sweeping drive through the Gate House lodge and the forest before entering by way of a portcullis. The hotel is built in the style of a medieval castle and is surrounded by 4000 acres of forest. The Grade I-listed building was built in the 19th century and has featured in movies including "Robin Hood" and "Doctor Who".
Beeston Castle and Woodland Park, a former royal castle and part of English Heritage, is around a five minutes' drive away. The Ice Cream Farm, a family-friendly ice-cream parlour and adventure park is approximately 10 minutes' drive away.
The 1851 Restaurant has three AA Rosettes, and serves classical French and modern British cuisine. "Dining in the 1851 Restaurant is a memorable experience", according to The AA Hotel Guide, 2016. The 2010 Brasserie is more informal and is located in the former scullery of the castle and maintains original features including two cast-iron cooking ranges.
There are 48 bedrooms in total; all rooms are individually designed and combine many original features.
There are lots of facilities at the hotel including air rifle shooting, archery, laser clay pigeon shooting and Segways. If you're a petrol head, try the Land Rover experience, or for a more calming break, relax in the spa.
