The detail

Stately and imposing from the outside and intimate and comfortable within, The Castle is a truly magnificent Grade II listed castle dating back to the early 1700s, and is now available as a self-catering holiday home. Conveniently located a 15 minute drive away from central Durham, The Castle is nestled within 14 acres of woodland and gardens, with a stunning nature reserve nearby.

The castle itself is staggeringly beautiful, with spacious rooms, period fixtures and a sense of grandeur which has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. The Castle is built around a main hall, with a sweeping staircase bearing you upwards and authentic furniture completing the aesthetic.

Stepping inside the historic interiors is like walking back in time, making this a truly special getaway for family reunions, wedding parties or friend groups looking for something unique and magical. The property boasts a newly fitted bar in the old dungeons, a sprawling space which runs for the entire length of the building as well as multiple spaces to work, relax and chat, with numerous nooks, fireplaces and window seats.

Arranged over three floors and sleeping up to 32 guests with 12 bathrooms, this is an ideal property for multi-generational groups, or parties looking to work or study as well as relax.

Rise in one of the 11 bedrooms and enjoy a solo walk through the landscaped grounds before breakfast with your good friends. Then spend the day hiking through the majestic countryside or simply enjoying a picnic in the gardens. Finish your day with a soak in the outdoor hot tub and a slap up meal enjoyed outdoors in the warmer months, or in the stately and charming dining room when it cools down. Employ a private chef for a truly opulent escape from everyday life, or stock up on local, seasonal ingredients from the butchers, greengrocers and specialist delis in the local area.

With a space like this to explore and unwind in, most guests spend their break rarely leaving the grounds, but those who like to explore the local area will be delighted by what is on offer nearby. From rural pubs with roaring fires and local ale to footpaths with breath-taking vistas, the immediate vicinity offers endless countryside charm. Head to Durham for a day trip with its medieval architecture, culturally rich events and world class cuisine, or spend the day on the sprawling nature reserve right on your doorstep. Alternatively, head to the nearby coast for a day at the beach.
