Take in the history surrounding this beautiful castle which was built in 1860 by local textile mill owners who wanted to re-create their own castle similar to those they had visited on their grand tours of Europe in the 19th century.

Carr Hall Castle has been graded as Five Star self catering accommodation and awarded a Gold Award by inspectors from Quality in Tourism.

The current owners have spent over £1 million transforming their unique home. They stripped the walls back to the original stone and brickwork, brought many original features back to life and married those with a wonderful contemporary interior of dark woods, deep colours and highly textured fabrics. The attached stable block was converted into a fantastic indoor swimming pool and gym and linked to the main building by an internal bridge

The castle is stocked with all your home comforts to provide for self catering, however a chef is available should you require any catering during your stay.

Staff can also be provided including Housekeeper, Butler, Nanny, Swimming Instructor and Academic Tutor.

Beauty treatments are available to pre-book.
