Peckforton, Cheshire, England
Peckforton Castle, an authentic 48-bedroom castle hotel, is set amidst 4000 acres of forest in Cheshire, England. This is a stunning corner of the UK, offering great accessibility from both Liverpool and Manchester, with each approximately one hour's drive away.
Pass the original gatehouse on your left and begin the long ascent up the castle's driveway. Slowly weave through the surrounding forest, climbing the Peckforton Hills overlooking Beeston, before approaching the castle proper. An original wrought-iron portcullis hangs above the carriageway, guarding the castle ward against any unwanted intruders in years gone by.

With a range of room types in the castle, from the opulent Four-Poster Rooms, straight out of fairy-tale books, to the more minimalistic Classic Rooms you've come to expect from hotels of this standard, there really is something for everyone at Peckforton Castle; no matter your taste!
