Castle Hotels

Britain is blessed with many castles, often in stunning locations, all full of history. Many of these national treasures now offer accommodation, from bed and breakfast to fully fledged hotels… some even offer self catering so you can be your own lord or lady of the manor.

For those of you wondering why England in particular is sadly lacking in castle hotels, this is mainly due to a period of decline they suffered during the 16th and 17th centuries, with many being dealt their final death knell during the English Civil War when Oliver Cromwell used heavy siege artillery on their walls. To view those castles that did survive and have now been converted into hotels, you can view our interactive map below:
