England - We Stayed Here Photo Tour

On our first night in England we were fortunate enough to stay in a great castle. This wasn’t a creepy old castle, it was a more modern castle only built in 1840. Peckforton Castle is only used for conferences, weddings and random travelers like us and has been completely redone thanks to a groom that had a wedding there last year who got angry about his bar bill and decided to set the hotel on fire. Inside the castle the rooms are grand and very regal feeling, however have nice modern touches. There is a cellar bar and a nice restaurant called the 1851 Restaurant that served us wonderful food which mine included Risotto, grilled fish with parsnip puree and a couple of glasses of a really nice crisp white wine.

Here are multiple views of the castle inside and out. They also have a falconry feature outside the main doors.

The rooms didn't have numbers, they had names, I didn't ask if that is who died in there or just a name.

Big giant bed.

Wood fire place, it didn't work, guessing that fire a year ago has scared them off that.

Shower and sink.

Lots-o-plaid. Our dinner table at the 1851 Restaurant.

There was a wedding going on the night we were there so we snuck in for a peek!
