Castle Durrow

Castle DurrowCastle Durrow Country House Hotel started its life as a private house in 1716.

After some years being a local school it is now, again, a private house,

Run by Peter and Shelly Stokes with their team as an ultimate luxury hotel surrounded by stunningly designed gardens and wonderful country walks.

Stay with us in one of our individually designed Master rooms on the first floor or one of the cosy Oriental rooms in the eves of the hotel, all of them giving the highest standard in comfort. Complimentary tea, coffee and home baked biscuits for you during your stay with us.

Unhurried classical dining in our award-winning restaurant, informal relaxed long lunches in the bar, the exceptionally talented kitchen team keep our ingredients as local as possible.

We are incredibly lucky to have a 4 acre walled garden, supplying wonderful produce for the hotel.

Our gardens are divided into different ‘rooms’, for our guests to wander through and to enjoy while getting a guided tour by Bart, head gardener at Castle Durrow.

We are all looking forward to welcome you whatever may be your occasion and making your stay one to be repeated!!
