Stone House Lane,
Spa & Leisure
Surrounded by the battlements of a 19th century, medieval style castle, leisure at Peckforton Castle is tailored to its surroundings, offering falconry, Land Rover experiences, archery, air rifle shooting, abseiling, quad biking, and other activities nearby, although there is no gym. There are a range of wet facilities, such as a 10 person hot tub, a Caribbean experience shower, and a sauna. Inside, the venue is an infinitely more decadent affair: the Tranquillity spa with juxtaposing contemporary soft furnishings is devoted to the art of luxury treatments using Elemis products to provide massages, manicures, pedicures and facials as well as waxing, and tinting, complete with bathrobes and slippers.
Hotel & Accommodation
It isn’t surprising that Peckforton Castle has been the location for movies including Robin Hood and Dr Who … after all; it is a genuine castle, with the surroundings to match. The 48 guest rooms exhibit Jacobean prints and luxurious fabrics, four-poster beds and all the necessary mod-cons to ensure your country escape isn’t a trip to the dark ages.
Food and drink is similarly opulent – the 1851 Restaurant has been awarded three AA rosettes for its locally sourced fare, while the cosmopolitan 2010 Brasserie in the castle’s former scullery offers lighter dishes and a children’s menu as well.
