Description from owner
Castle Hill House stands in the historic grounds of Tutbury Castle in a fantastic elevated position above the village of Tutbury on the banks of the River Dove.
The castle forms a dramatic backdrop to Castle Hill House, a perfect location for a tranquil getaway to the countryside, family celebration, golf holiday or simply for a beautiful base from which to explore with your family and friends.
There are many fabulous spaces both in and outside Castle Hill House to relax and unwind during your stay. The beautiful high ceilings, deep windows and attractive archways let the light pour in and the grand staircase and large hallways give the feeling of grandeur. The house has both Georgian and Victorian sections giving it a wealth of character and is immaculately decorated throughout with luxurious deep pile carpets, chandeliers and beautiful decorative cornice work.
Outside, the large garden has magnificent views of Tutbury Castle and the large brick built barbecue and patio area is great for socializing with family or friends. The children have plenty to keep them entertained with a play area with swing, slide and Monkey Bars!

“Best weekend ever!”
We rented Castle Hill House out for our wedding weekend with family and friends both staying with us and visiting during the big day. From start to finish the weekend was magical, the house was the perfect venue for entertaining large groups of all ages. The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and clean, we we're worried that we wouldn't have enough space to store all of the food and drink for the weekend but with the large kitchen, utility room and various cupboards there was more than enough room. The lounge is well laid out and had plenty of seating available for everybody who stayed, and despite it's size, felt so cosy with the coal burner. The owners of the house were so helpful, and had decorated it beautifully for Christmas. Lisa also recommended an amazing caterer Simon Smith - so if you're thinking about getting catering we would highly recommend him. Tutbury is also a lovely village with all amenities in walking distance. We couldn't recommend Castle Hill House enough, and we think it would be well suited for all occasions, and we would look to hire it again in the future. Thank you to Lisa for all of the help when booking, and Martin for the warm welcome, who even helped us unpack (although we don't think that's included in the package... :) ) Rachel & Haydn
“Perfect location and accommodation for our celebration weekend”
I visited Castle Hill House along with a group of 17 ladies for a 'sophisticated' hen weekend. It was fabulous. The location was perfect and the accommodation was impressive, comfortable and ideal for our group. It was clean and well equipped and it had everything we needed. Nothing was too much trouble either. We asked if the Xmas decs could be put up at the request of one of our brides to be and it looked really special. I would absolutely recommend Castle Hill House. It is perfect for large groups, family get togethers, etc. I am already thinking of an excuse to go back.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased you had a fantastic weekend and glad the Christmas decorations helped you get into the festive spirit!
“Couldnt have been any better....”
When looking for a property to take 22 hens to for the weekend, i knew id hit gold when i found Castle Hill House. Lisa & Andrew made the booking process so easy, and answered any questions prior to our stay very promptly. The house itself is spectacular, and everyone was in awe as they arrived. Everything we could possibly have needed was provided including crockery, towels, bedding, music system, wifi, everything! It was obvious a lot of thought had gone in to what would be needed.... The whole house is decorated, cleaned and furnished to a high standard and it seemed no corners had been cut, very impressed... Ian met us at the house on Friday afternoon and gave us the tour, telling us everything we needed to know about getting in and out, where everything was, and was always available to text/ring if we needed to know anything else or had any problems. The mix of bedroom sizes in the house made it so easy to decide on sleeping arrangements and everyone commented how comfortable the beds were. Most of the bedrooms were ensuite which defo helped when everyone was trying to get ready. We decided to stay in on Saturday night rather than venture in to the village (Even though Ian had told us that every pub was worth a visit) the dining room was perfect for us all to eat together and play some games, and the staircase from the living room to the hall provided an great dance off arena. There are loads of seating areas in the house, meaning there can be quiet civilised convos going on in one room, and more raucous games going on in another, somewhere for everyone! Tutbury itself is a nice town, and a few of the hens went for a wander on Sunday afternoon in search of a roast dinner. Getting to the house was easy for everyone involved, with people travelling from Shropshire, Hull, Leeds & London, and having the train station in the village was a bonus for those travelling from further afield. All in all, we all had a great weekend, and i wouldn't think twice about booking to stay there again, its not everyday you get to wake up with a view of a castle in your garden and peacocks roaming about!
“Top marks, would definitely stay here again!”
We came to Castle Hill House for a family holiday, there were 25 of us altogether and the house was big enough to accommodate us all, but plenty of room if we wanted our own space too. The lounge and dining room fit us all in comfortably so we could all be together. The bedrooms were beautiful. When we arrived at the house it felt like we were the first to ever stay there, and all the rooms smelt gorgeous which was a nice bonus! The garden was big enough for the kids to play in and the swings and slide kept them busy all week, and it was nice to know they were quite safe as the garden is walled with a secure gate. The only small downside is the house is right next to a grave yard and there was sadly a funeral the week we were there. It wouldn't put me off going again but obviously you have to be mindful of noise levels outside so not to be disrespectful, (we brought the kids in so we didn't disrupt the service). Other than that, lovely surroundings, it was nice waking up hearing the birds (and the peacock!!). We sadly didn't get to go into the actual castle as it was closed due the time of year, but if you can go in summer the castle looks worth a visit. Tutbury itself is a really sweet little village and we found the people to be very very friendly. A few nice gift shops and some great pubs. A bit of a walk to the village and then a hike back up the hill to the house, but worth it. We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. Thanks for everything Castle Hill House!
“Hen Weekend Amazingness!”
We stayed here for a hen weekend in June 2014 & were completely blown away!! The house is just MAGNIFICENT and SOOOOOO much bigger than it looks on the pictures! There were 22 of us in total & all had more than enough room everywhere! All bathrooms are lovely & modern, the house was immaculate & has an amazing outdoor area (great for the innder child in all us grown ups!) and plenty of parking space! Kitchen was well equipped, I wasn't sure what to take - in terms of washing up liquid, tin foil etc - so took it all just in case. Most items were already there, but we left things we brought anyway - a pay it forward kind of deal!! All the bedrooms have beautiful views too! Lisa was very friendly when I was enquiring about EVERYTHING, and Martin met us to show us round when we arrived, was lovely! He was very quick & helpful when we had a hot water issue....all resolved in a matter of minutes - EXCELLENT service!!! The local peacocks were a laughing point for us all weekend - peacock pie anyone?!!!? JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!! All in all, this place is just FANTASTIC! It's in a beautiful village, just a 2 minute walk down the hill to local shops/pubs/indian etc, all with very friendly people! P.S - We all LOVED the doorbell!!! We never got tired of a random press & singalong!!! Haha! Simple things! :)
“22 of us.......Perfect for all”
We were five families including adults, teenagers, kids and babies who stayed over New Year at Castle Hill House. We all had a great time. Within the house, and on its grounds, we were all catered for. Coming and going is easy from a very accessible and secure 'on-grounds' car park. The specification is high and Andrew & Lisa have worked very hard to keep or renew period features. Every room has a luxurious feeling and yet practical enough to withstand exuberant kids! The layout is perfect for group activities with enough comfy nooks in which just a few people, or Dad with the newspaper, could relax. All of the bathrooms and bedrooms are clean and bright too. Some of the views are really cool overlooking the Castle to the rear and a green to the front. The kitchen was a constant focal point for all and well equipped to keep everyone happy. Loads of good pubs with good food within a few minutes walk. Andrew & Lisa made the booking arrangements and communication very easy and this put us at ease right from booking, introduction around the house and leaving. We would definitely recommend this venue to groups of Friends or family.
Owner's reply: We are so pleased the house suited all your family. Thank you for a lovely Review. It was a pleasure to help you. Lisa
“Stunning Property Ideal for Surprise Birthday Celebration”
A wonderful time was had by all when we visited Castle Hill House for a Friday to Monday break in March 2013. This stunning property exceeded our expectations in every way. The large well equipped kitchen easily catered for our party of 24. The dining room comfortably accommodated us all providing a relaxed environment in which to enjoy meals with our friends and the lounge was perfectly sized to continue our party into the early hours. The bedrooms were all of a good size and the ensuite facilities excellent. The games room provided an excellent additional touch which pleased the children and adults alike. Overall cannot fault the property or the service offered to us when making the booking. Would definitely book again and would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear you had a fantastic weekend. Many Thanks Lisa
