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 £119 including dining credit and breakfast.

What's Included

  • Valid Sunday–Thursday until 31 October, 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 £21 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

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

Lovely experience of staying in a castle, although quite a distance to our room, including a number of steps, so plenty of opportunity to work off the calories!

I love the building, position, ambience, the bedrooms and the food. The wine bar is a great place for a nightcap

We had a lovely stayed at the castle , amazing property , our room was in the 5 floor on the tower , no the best view . Bed was far too small for a double and the showers need a little deep clean as some mould shows off . Eating at the brasserie was good , but staff need to be more attentive . Overall we had a great day / night celebrating our 3 rd anniversary .

All staff were great. Check in was easy. Finding the room was not so easy. More direction signs to bedrooms are needed.

I feel that as we booked through a third party we were given one of the less desirable rooms. Our view from a small window was of the weeds growing out of the rear of the building and the gas storage tank and generator. The bathroom shower door did not close, the water temperature was hard to adjust and the shower did not drain well so we had to keep turning it off and on. We also had to climb over 50 steps to the room.

This is our third visit to Peckforton. Just love the place.Food in the 1861 restaurant was excellent. However wine was expensive and table water should have no charge in my opinion
Other Comments
Few minor items with the room. The security safe was on the floor of the ward robe and you had to lie down to operate. Also shampoo dispenser was not working and the shower leaked.

A wonderful experience from beginning to end but with an unfortunate glitch in the middle! Venue is amazing as are the staff and food superb - just the other guests on the top floor rooms 601 - 603 interrupted what would have been a good night's sleep at 2.30am! Thanks to the Blue Bricks evening event.

We needed a table for four but they couldn’t accommodate us in the Brasserie. We had to eat in the Fine Dining. Limited choice of food. It was delicious but expensive. Our Travelzoo allowance didn’t go far!
