Renting a Castle

Castles have existed in the UK since the Roman days, when castles were created as important defence structures against Saxon invasions. Although they fulfilled an important purpose in defending our shores, they were often built as a symbol of their owner’s wealth and status, and are some of the most impressive buildings to have been created throughout history.

Many historic castles have fallen into disrepair over the years, and are popular tourist attractions with romantic ruins to explore. Of those that have survived the centuries, some have become part of the National Trust for tourists to visit and some have been made into hotels, however there are a select number of castles available for exclusive use hire in the UK, offering a the once in a lifetime opportunity of staying in castle as if it were your own home.

Castles are the ultimate luxury accommodation choice, playing host throughout history to aristocracy and the wealthy with opulent banquets and decadent parties.
