You Can Now Stay In Your Own Mini Castle Right On The Edge Of The Yorkshire Dales

Sitting in our homes right now as we await an impending national lockdown, its easy to see how one could easily drift away into a fantasy of becoming a Royal and living in a castle far, far away from other humans. And while it may seem far-fetched, it turns out, that dream can now actually become a reality.

Sitting just South of regular Dominic Cummings haunt, Barnard Castle, and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Scargill Castle makes for a cosy bolthole for two – with all the royal trimmings playing on the castle theme.

Decked out with grand medieval touches, including a big wooden dining table and matching drapes, the castle actually dates all the way back to the 1500s – on the site of an earlier medieval castle. Rescued from becoming a crumbling ruin, the structure is now a romantic retreat for two – with sweeping views of the countryside to enjoy.

Providing the best of both Teeside and North Yorkshire, the castle is conveniently located by the Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines – giving plenty of opportunities for adventure if you’re the outdoorsy type.

Complementing the building’s history and medieval charm, the bolthole features a number of Tudor-style finishings which you’ll notice throughout, including a Tudor fireplace complete with a wood burning stove, Tudor gardens outside, and quirky deep-set windows which were popular during that time period.

But of course, not everything dates back to 500 years ago – with the castle finished off with cosy, modern day furnishings to make for the comfiest stay possible.

Elsewhere in the castle, guests will stumble upon a classic roll-top bathtub (but of course, we’re royalty now!), where you can enjoy a glass of fizz or attempt to squeeze in together for an extra romantic evening.

And while the castle itself is filled with a number of highlights for a relaxing stay, it’s outside that really captures our attention – thanks to its easy access to Barnard Castle, Greta Bridge, Richmond and the North of the Yorkshire Dales.

The dog-friendly stay comes complete with an outdoor space to enjoy in the warmer months after you’ve spent the morning hiking – with a BBQ, seating area, and even a herb and vegetable garden on site to browse. What better way to enjoy the countryside? For more information, check out the listing here.
