Peckforton Castle

Why We Love This Deal

Peckforton's battlements peek above the treetops deep in the Cheshire countryside. Entrance to this Grade I-listed Medieval-style castle is via its portcullis, where spiral staircases ascend to bedrooms, and suits of armour guard the hallways. An overnight escape for two is £115 including dining credit and breakfast.

What's Included

  • Valid Sunday-Thursday until 31 July, 2024. Fridays and Saturdays are £50 more 
  • An overnight stay for two people in a Classic Double Room, with full English breakfast 
  • £20 per person dining credit (food only) in the brasserie,* a relaxed setting in the castle's original kitchens 
  • It's £20 more to dine in the 1851 Restaurant,** which serves classic French and modern British cuisine in an elegant setting (£30 per person dining credit - food only) 
  • This is a non-refundable rate. Cancellations are not permitted

"Gob smacking upon entry through the portcullis!! The lawn was perfectly cut giving a fantastic picture of the castle. The room was brill!! And the restaurants fabulous. Food was perfectly cooked, and service first rate!!"

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Peckforton Castle is situated midway between Chester and Crewe and is surrounded by 36,000 acres of sprawling Cheshire countryside.
  • Though it has the appearance of a Medieval fortress, Peckforton Castle was built in the 19th century. In 1952, The castle was recognised by English Heritage and granted Grade I-listed status, as a building of exceptional interest and importance. The castle and its grounds have been the backdrop for scenes in "Robin Hood", "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", and "Doctor Who".
  • The Wine Cellar is described by The Daily Telegraph as an "extraordinary" place for drinks. This circular, lantern-lit room features a bar, low barrel vault ceiling, and alcoves built into the castle wall.***
  • Less than five minutes' drive from the hotel and sitting atop a rocky crag are the Medieval ruins of Beeston Castle. On a clear day from here, you can see all the way from the Pennines to the Welsh mountains. The English Heritage Site delves into 4,000 years of history, has a replica Bronze Age roundhouse, and 40 acres of woodland. 
  • Lonely Planet has dubbed Chester "one of Britain's prettiest town centres" thanks to its tidy collection of black-and-white timber-framed buildings. The city is 30 minutes' drive away.

* These are sample menus for the brasserie and 1851 Restaurant
** The 1851 Restaurant is up a flight of stairs, however a chair lift is available
*** The Wine Cellar is sometimes closed for private events

The castle is a great place to stay as it has a different feeling to a traditional hotel. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast and all were really good. The room was lovely and the staff were all helpful

Enjoyed Peckforton very much, nice rooms excellent staff Only disappointment was the evening meal in the 1835 restaurant menue was limited food was poor , I did eat my chicken but it was very dry . My wife had the fish which she left as she said it was tasteless . My wife told the waitress when asked as to be fair a young lady came over straight away and asked what she could do to make it right. She gave my wife a complimentary cheese and biscuits and deleted the meal of the bill and followed up with a complimentary port with the cheese. They were very good but if we ever went back I would try the brasserie next time.

The staff were excellent. I felt some if not all were embarrassed by the charges being levied.
Other Comments
Overpriced drinks (£10.50 for a medium glass of Chardonnay) and ridiculously overpriced and underwealming 1851 restaurant. Meagre portions at extortionate prices justified by theming of FINE DINING. Also, display of public "honking" by 2 guests who had obviously consumed too much drink. Distasteful to say the least!

Our room was very tired, no hot water in the hand basin, the shower screen rubber seal was hanging off, and generally in a poor state! The Staff were excellent and so was the 1851 restaurant!
