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


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.
