If you’ve always dreamt of staying in your very own castle, then Augill is the place for you.

A 19th-century pile built in mock-medieval style, complete with turrets, towers and castellated ‘battlements’, it’s actually a very welcoming family home: owners Simon and Wendy Bennett have restored it with passion and care, and do their best to make it a relaxed, friendly home away from home.

Rooms are suitably grand – many have four-poster beds, clawfoot baths and antique furniture – but it feels stylish rather than stuffy. More contemporary rooms are available in the estate’s old stables and cottages.

Surrounding area

The castle sits in its own private gardens, surrounded by three areas of outstanding natural beauty: the Lake District to the west, the Yorkshire Dales to the south and the North Pennines to the north.

The nearest village is Brough, a sleepy place, while the little market town of Kirkby Stephen is about 4.5 miles south.
