Dating from the late 1600’s, the castle combines the elegance of a Regency country house with Victorian gothic - complete with castellations and turrets. The interiors have been lovingly preserved, with ornate gold leaf ceilings, open fires and family portraits throughout. The Turret Suite is set on three completely circular floors, including a Sitting Room, bedroom and a bathroom complete with Victorian rain bath.

All rooms enjoy sweeping views over the gatehouse, parkland or gardens. There is a fallow deer herd in the park, and a chain of five lakes and woodland. The four acre walled garden has been recently restored and now produces flowers, fruit and vegetables for the hotel.

The converted Georgian stables are home to an award winning cookery school, run by the celebrated TV chef Rosemary Shrager. Rosemary is also resident chef on the Alan Titchmarsh Show every week and has been for the past 2 1/2 years, and a chef on This Morning. She was the mentor of the winning team of Taste the Nation in early 2009, and has continued to make two seasons of Ladette for an Australian tv network channel 9 in '08 & '09, as well as an American edition. She has been fronting National Baking Week for the past 2 years.

Day courses are run by Robert Taylor, who won the acclaimed Chaine de Rotisseurs Chef of the Year Award in 2008.

The castle is surrounded by the family’s 20,000 acre estate, stretching from the River Ure up onto the Yorkshire Dales, estate tours of the Wensleydale scenery, local attractions and cottage industries are available.
