Why We Love This Deal

Deep in the Cheshire countryside, Peckforton’s battlements peek above the treetops. "Character is what Peckforton is all about" (The Daily Telegraph): entrance to this Grade I-listed Medieval-style castle is via its portcullis, spiral staircases ascend to bedrooms, and suits of armour guard the hallways. An overnight winter escape for two is £129 — including dinner credit and breakfast — and saves up to 45% on direct rates.

What's Included

  • Valid Monday-Thursday 1 December, 2022-31 March, 2023. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are £50 more 
  • An overnight stay for two people in a Classic Double Room, with full English breakfast 
  • £15 per person dinner credit in the brasserie, a relaxed setting in the castle’s original kitchens 
  • It’s £30 more to eat in the 1851 Restaurant,* which serves classical French and modern British cuisine in an elegant setting (£30 per person dinner credit) 
  • This is a non-refundable rate. Cancellations are not permitted

  • 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.

We loved the place and the village. It represented excellent value for money. There are a few walks in the area and I wish we had more time to do them.

Details of the walks were given to us by a member of staff and I thought that was very helpful

Customer service was generally not good. Ladies toilet near reception on untidy. Soap dispenser and hand dryer not working Chose this hotel because of the grounds and history. Unfortunately the walks were not well signposted and there was an obscure sign we found about thd history. Really sad Food was good but basic.

The bed was delightful. The television was very frustrating as it relied on the internet and kept spooling because the speed was not good enough.

Great place to stay, enjoyed it very much. Only criticism was a lack of real ale, did not even have it in bottles and the wine list was limited. Did not detract too much from a pleasant stay.

First time at this venue, which is hidden in woods, but from the first view of the magnificent castle, our room (up 95 steps!), the service and the food, our stay was spectacular. Room was in a turret and we could see Liverpool from the window. What an atmospheric setting, and would definitely return if there was another similar deal on offer.

Walks from the hotel are not for the faint hearted, but some great canals a short drive away and the nearest town of Nantwich is well worth stopping at.

Receptionist immediately changed our room once we told him that there were too many stairs to our original room. Food at dinner and breakfast was good.
Other Comments
No information given about the hotel either its history or where the bar, dining room, breakfast room or times. Room lights not bright enough, no light over bathroom mirror. Advance notice should be given about the large number of stairs to be climbed to some rooms. An invoice for our stay was pushed under our room door around 11pm and woke us up. Why? It could have been given to us when we checked out. Also disappointed to have £30 pounds taken, then not taken off my drinks bill which was £30.70 which was again taken from my account, and I do not get the first £30 back for some days. I have never encountered this procedure before.

Good fun & great value. I'd requested an upgrade & a room with a view. Initially not provided it was accommodated well by the young gentleman on reception. Good service.
Other Comments
The two nights away were good fun - it is really like a castle. Very grand & great ambience. Very gloomy lighting which whilst fitting was tricky when menu reading and stairs . . .
