A warm welcome to The Castle, a truly exceptional Grade II* listed Jacobean castle which is steeped in history since the early 1700's. Nestled away in the Durham countryside, sitting in 14 acres of land surrounded by a nature reserve. This is the ideal place to escape from the modern world and indulge with friends and family. Whether that be sitting by one of the many fireplaces with a good page turner or retreating to the dungeon for a drink.

The space
