About Augill Castle

Small and beautiful - that's the essence of a wedding at Augill Castle which has a long tradition of memorable hospitality. It is a place where the background is of creaking floorboards, ticking clocks and distant laughter. Today Simon & Wendy Bennett run the castle in a modern, informal style. Flexibility is key in planning your big day. Hire the Castle for exclusive use and it will be yours for the duration of your wedding stay. You can have a fully catered wedding with all the trimmings (just like christmas!), hire just the venue and do it all yourslef or come for a small intimate wedding just for the day. Whatever you choose to do, as much planning as you need is included.

Big enough to feel grand, small enough to remain intimate and relaxed, Augill lends itself to small, bespoke wedding celebrations where the service is discreet but polished and everything is done with a minimum of fuss allowing you to fully enjoy the most important day of your life with the most important people in your life without any interruptions. With fifteen years of experience of weddings at the castle Simon & Wendy are able to advise on what works and what might not and share their personal knowledge of suppliers of everything from cakes to horse drawn carriages to flowers. Food at the castle is sourced from a wealth of local suppliers, often organic, always top quality and following the seasons. Working in partnership with a local vintner they can help you match the menu that they will help you to create to an equally exciting range of wines.

Everything is here to make the castle the backdrop to your own fairytale.
