Guest access

Access to all public areas of the castle & our 15 acres estate. Private living spaces as clearly marked, other than that you've got turrets, towers, secret doorways, rambling corridors and secret garden to explore.

Interaction with guests

Simon, Wendy & their teenage children live on site & run the castle with a small friendly local staff so there is always someone around. Simon and Wendy have been hosting guests at the castle since 1998 - way before AirBnB was born!
In high season you'll share the castle with the family and other guests and you'll be part of a happy, lively family-orientated household with distinctly relaxed vibe but pick a quiet night out of season and you may get a whole castle to yourself!

Other things to note

Augill Castle is run as a small 15 bedroom unique place to stay in a B&B style but itvs much more than a B&B and a world away from a conventional hotel. Simon and Wendy bought the castle as a wreck in 1997 and have been hosting guests since then - way before AirBnB was even thought of - always with the single aim of providing a place for others to call home in the hope that visitors arrive as guests and leave as friends.
The castle is in glorious open countryside between two of Britain's favourite national parks - The Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District.
Augill Castle has been described as unlike anywhere you have ever stayed before.

Simon and Wendy's place is simply amazing. From the moment you walk in it feels like taking a step back in time to enjoy fine country living, a warm welcome and treatment as an honored guest in their beautiful castle. Very much looking forward to being back!

The castle started life as a Victorian gentleman's folly built in 1841. It is our home with our children Oliver & Emily, (plus Maisie the Cocker Spaniel, chickens, goats and pigs galore). We run it as a quirky, quietly groovy sort of place to stay - not a hotel, not a B&B but something entirely different. We have a separate website for the castle which is easily found.

We began hosting back in 1998 as a way to pay for the renovation of this beautiful building.

It's a real family home which welcomes guests to stay for a night or two, have supper or dinner, party or even get married. A seriously relaxed place - no false formality, but a place where you can kick off your shoes by the front door without causing a scandal!

It is an old building with small doorways and corridors but all ground floor guest areas are disabled friendly and there are two ground floor bedrooms - one with full wheelchair access.

Our rates quoted on this site are per room per night for bed & breakfast for two people and are a starting point. We also have a listing for hiring the whole castle. All our rooms are very different and individually priced so you may find the rate changes if you request specific rooms or dates. Extra beds, dinner, wine, drinks etc are all charged in addition.
