A stylish stay at a recently revamped 16th-century castle on the stunning Wirral Peninsula - includes breakfast plus dinner and family options

Flaunting its fabulous new looks following a recent £2.5-million makeover, this gorgeous 16th-century castle on Merseyside’s stunning Wirral Peninsula offers style-lovers and history buffs plenty to get excited about. Most appealing, though, is its setting in tranquil gardens overlooking the Leasowe Golf Course, the mountains of North Wales, and the waters of Liverpool Bay.

Built in 1593 by Ferdinando Stanley, 5th Earl of Derby, and since used as an observation platform for the Wallasey races and a railway convalescent home, the look here is now resolutely modish. There’s a relaxed brasserie for burgers, pasta and salads, and a rather swanky new bar with an extensive cocktail list.

Good to know

Please note that guests opting for dinner during their stay are required to contact the hotel directly, prior to their arrival, to make dinner reservations.
