Passing through the country lanes of Cheshire you can view the Castle on top of the Peckforton Hills from quite a distance away, be it that the surrounding forest hides all but a small part. As you turn off the lane and pass through the magnificent gate house, your journey is almost complete but the amazing experience continues. The meandering driveway takes you through the forest which in itself is of special scientific interest and then suddenly through the trees appears a large but beautiful fairytale castle. Originally the home of Lord Tollemache and built in the early 19th Century the Hotel is the only intact medieval style Castle in the country. Over the years the Castle has been the location for numerous movies including Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Dr Who and more recently Coronation Street. The stunning exterior has now been complimented by a lovingly refurbished interior which houses 48 bedrooms and truly magnificent entertaining rooms.
Peckforton Castle holds monthly open evenings giving you the opportunity to meet with our wedding coordinators and view the castle function rooms beautifully dressed. Please see our events calender on our website for further details

Thank you for a memorable special day!
When we first saw the venue 11 months before the big day we knew it was going to be the perfect location for our wedding.Sent on 17/02/2020
Planning a wedding is stressful as anyone who has planned one will know. Especially in 11 months. This is where the staff at Peckforton Castle came in. All of them were very accessible and nothing was a problem for them. They answered all the questions you could have and got back to us with the information we needed.
The staff have put on plenty of weddings and know how to make it a success which it was....
On the big day, I'll be honest, I did not expect it to run as smoothly or go as well as it did.
On the day the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much to ask they were always on hand to address any issues and were very attentive to guests needs (dietary requirements etc). The staff really went above and beyond to make the day as special as it was even helping decorate and set up a lot of the venue rooms which normally falls on the aisle dresser.
The food was amazing and all we had was great feedback from the guests about what an amazing day they had.
The venue really is special so if your thinking of getting married, Peckforton Castle should be a real contender. We are not rich by any stretch and weddings aren't cheap but if you visit the venue you'll fall in love with it and you can very easily get an affordable package at a dream venue. Weddings aren't cheap but to have an amazing venue in an affordable package you cannot ask for more.
Go see it for yourselves it's worth it!
