Summer Holidays in a Castle

The Summer Holidays are quickly approaching and, if you are reading this, the chances are you are looking for a place for you and your family to stay. A castle may not seem like the most obvious choice, however, there are a few lovely castles still available during the summer, and I would bet anything that you would love to stay at one of them!



Contrary to what most people believe, quite a few castles are child-friendly, often depending only on the age of your children. If you are travelling with your family, then here are a few castles that may be of interest to you...



Brackenhill Tower, which sleeps up to ten guests and has an additional cottage that can sleep a further six guests, still has availability in June, July and August 2017. Brackenhill is located three miles east of Longtown, approximately ten miles north of the city of Carlisle. 


It is a quiet secluded property where you can enjoy a few relaxing days. The grounds outside are ideal for children to play.

You can book instantly with our online booking system!

Another favourite is Aikwood Tower. This sixteenth-century tower has been lovingly renovated to accommodate up to ten overnight guests in authentic, relaxing and comfortable surroundings.

We can also add Castle Law to this list; a Scottish self-catering family-friendly castle, less than an hour from Glasgow. Sleeping fourteen people in seven bedrooms.


This Grade A-listed property, steeped in rich history, dating back to the fifteenth century, is now a truly exclusive and splendid holiday home.

If self-catered castles are of interest to you, it would be wise to check availability as soon as possible, as there is a lot of interest for the summer months.

If you are interested in something smaller or for fewer guests, we can also offer accommodation in a castle-hotel; the only difference here is that you will not have the entire castle to yourselves, but as long as you are in a castle, the experience will still be magical!
