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.

"Wonderful place, relaxing, luxury at its best"
We stayed on a very cold weekend in January, could not have been more welcoming, the castle is stunning, luxurious and incredibly relaxing, we could not have enjoyed the weekend more, the pool and jacuzzi were wonderful, every little detail had been thought of, we had the luxury of a boutique hotel with all the home comforts, I cannot wait to go back

"Words cannot describe how amazing Carr Hall Castle is ..."
Having heard about Carr Hall from a business colleague who stayed there, I was so excited when I was able to book it in the run up to Christmas this year.
My wife and I were treated to such an amazing welcome; there was a guard of honour as we drove up to Carr Hall Castle from a pack of Deer.
Carr Hall Castle exudes luxury from the moment you walk in to a cosy farmhouse kitchen with a wonderful fiery red Aga. The kitchen is excellently appointed and has everything you want, even down to a coffee machine, complete with Costa Coffee!
We enjoyed dinner on Friday evening in the dining room the dining table was one fit for a king and with the roaring wood fire we did not want to finish our meals.
In the living room there's the most luxurious carpet which is so soft its good enough to sleep on. The 3D TV, Blue Ray player, Play Station, iPod docking stations gives one everything they could possibly want to chill out.
To bed and we had the pick of 5 amazing bedrooms, 2 en suites, 2 with Apple Mac's and 2 with TV's bigger than the one I have at home in the living room. The beds have the most comfortable mattresses and toppers, cushions to die for and soft furnishings befitting of a 7 star boutique.
We managed to drag ourselves out of bed the following morning and on route to the family bathroom, the view of the grounds covered in early morning frost and Deer grazing just yards away from the gates stunning.
We went for a swim in the private pool listening to our iPod complete with surround sound, and then could not resist celebrating in the hot tub with a glass of Champers (we've been married 6 months this weekend!). Watching the world go by planes flying past the crisp blue sky and the royal flag clapping in the wind, we could not do anything but relax!
That night we decided to watch Strictly in HD and the Final of I'm a Celebrity (Both my wife's choice) and ordered a take away from Café Thai which is just a 5 minute drive away, they do deliver, however I'd recommend picking it up as it's great to see the deer park at night with just your headlights to guide you.
It's safe to say on Sunday we did not want to leave, but we decided to have a lovely walk in the grounds around the lake, by the water fall and in the little wood.
Terry thank you so much for such an amazing weekend, what a great way to celebrate our 6 month wedding anniversary and I can't wait to come back in the Summer, I can see a BBQ on the cards!

"i felt like a princess in a modern day fairytale setting"
Set in beautiful and immaculately kept grounds , Carr Hall Castle could be straight from a picture book. The entrance is impressive, past the deer park and the lake and then we arrive at what must be the most luxurious and cosiest castle in the world.
We were greeted by Graham who had prepared the castle for our stay. As a clean freak I was in my element. As he showed us around I marvelled at how perfectly spotless everywhere was and so beautifully inviting. The plush carpets, the gorgeous tasteful decor, rich warm colours and fabrics, beds with crisp white linen and soft pillows and cushions. The very best of everything. .luxury toiletries, televisions in all rooms, the best sound system in the pool area with selection of CDs. We would want for nothing.
Of course this is a home and quite the most beautiful one i've ever seen.
Every utensil we could need was in the kitchen with a vast array of crockery, cutlery and glasses and a fab coffee machine with pods as well as a huge box of a selection of luxury teas.Nicola had told me what was in the well stocked food cupboard so I knew what to bring to make breakfast. It was a delight to use the Aga which was left on for us. As was the heating ,so everywhere was always beautifully warm.
Our master bedroom had a spacious dressing room and getting ready for dinner felt so special. We had booked a table in the village and we had a wonderful dinner but we all agreed we were excited to go home to the castle.
So we did and had coffee in the castle before enjoying the pool and the hot tub before going to bed in what can only be described as a big soft cloud. The best night's sleep ever.
