Character, History and Spectacular Views are Often Found at Castles and Towerhouses

If you want to truly wow friends and families, castles and towers can be ideal.  With turrets, rich history and often spectacular views over the surrounding landscape, castles are stunning locations for group holidays.  For the chance to truly impress your nearest and dearest you may even be able to find a rental with a gatehouse and a drawbridge!

How to find the Best Castle, Fort or Towerhouse for your Group Break?

When searching for a castle or tower house, it’s useful to decide which part of the UK you want to holiday in.  How far are your friends and family happy to travel?  You may want to find a castle or tower house within a few hours drive of your home or you may be willing to travel further afield for the right property.

Remember to check prior to booking that the turreted property welcomes the type of group you are looking to accommodate.  Some unique self-catering properties are family groups only, some will accept hen groups and fewer stag parties.  If you want to get married, you will need to find a castle that is licensed to perform wedding ceremonies.  Some properties may permit marquees in the garden, whereas others won’t.  We recommend going over the needs of your group and event before booking accommodation to ensure that your escape to the castle goes like a fairytale.
