A fairy-tale stay at a dramatic hilltop fortress, with award-winning dining, a spa and splendid views across the Cheshire plains - includes breakfast and dinner options

  • Step back in time to the medieval era wandering through the castle’s fairytale-esque corridors and spiral turret staircases. Built in the mid-19th century, Peckforton is a Victorian take on a real-life medieval castle, complete with French tapestries on the bare stone walls, crackling fireplaces, arrow slit windows and suits of armour.

  • Tuck into sumptuous fresh and organic produce in the 1851 Restaurant. Dishes here include tarte tatin, baked hake and pan-roasted pork loin, best washed down with a glass of wine or two. Recipient of three AA Rosettes and a Taste Cheshire Award, you’re guaranteed a fine wining and dining experience.

  • Let your inner kid run riot with the plethora of fun activities on offer here. See how good your shot is with archery or clay pigeon shooting lessons, play a game of croquet or compete head to head in a Crystal Maze-style game. For something more mellow, go for a stroll along the Sandstone Trail and admire the countryside views.

How to get there

If you're coming via public transport, the best stations to head to are Chester or Crewe. Both stations connect to major transport hubs like London and Manchester, and each is equidistant to the hotel. A taxi from both should take around half an hour. The castle isn’t the easiest to reach via public transport, so you’re best driving if you can.

Good to know

Please advise the hotel if you have any special room requirements prior to your arrival (such as lift access or ground floor access), as the castle only has limited rooms available which are accessible by lift.

Please also be aware that 1851 Restaurant has several stairs leading to it; a chair lift is available if required.

Please note that the use of the Tranquility Spa facilities is restricted to guests who have pre-booked treatments only.

Peckforton Castle is perched on top of a hill near the villages of Beeston and Peckforton in Cheshire, surrounded by miles upon miles of rolling Cheshire countryside and forest. The Roman city of Chester is around half an hour’s drive away, and the railway town of Crewe is around the same in the other direction.

Chester certainly has plenty to offer: think pretty Tudor buildings, original Roman-era walls and some of the North West’s best pubs and restaurants. Closer to home, enjoy some of the county’s finest walks along the pathways of the Sandstone Trail, with beautiful panoramic vistas visible along the way.
