Less than 2 hours from Manchester Airport

Four miles outside the town of Kirkby Stephen


The 'Great Outdoors' is on the doorstep!

Augill Castle is at the geographical centre of the British Isles, four miles outside the small market town of Kirkby Stephen, two hours' drive from Manchester & Leeds, an hour from Lancaster, York & Newcastle.

Teesside Airport is 45 minutes' drive to the East. Newcastle Airport is 75 minutes away North. Manchester Airport is two hours South.

Rail services from London are at Kirkby Stephen (four hours from Kings Cross via Leeds), Penrith (three hours direct from Euston) & Darlington (two and a half hours direct from Kings Cross).

Perfectly placed for visits to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, Augill Castle gives you the best from both sides of the Pennines.

Closer to home, the castle's own slice of paradise, the Eden Valley, offers endless opportunities for less energetic days. As well as some of the best and most uncrowded walking in Britain, there are villages, caves, riverbanks, castles, waterfalls and gorges to explore on foot, on your bike or by car.

Loved the warmth and personableness of the staff. The setting was spectacular. A very comfortable, relaxed place to be.
