The castle is approached via a farm track which also leads to Scargill Castle Farm. Private parking is provided and guests enter the castle through a gate into your own sheltered and fully enclosed courtyard gardens created from the remains of the old Tudor manor house.


From the garden the arched entrance hall leads into a dining hall with long oak table; take a moment to admire the ornate roof beams carved from oak trees felled over 400 years ago! From here you can wander into the sunny kitchen which overlooks the Tudor gardens.


The stone spiral stair leads up to the living room with oak floor and a wood burning stove set within a Tudor fireplace. Two deep set windows pierce the ancient thick walls and overlook the Tudor courtyard gardens to the east and the rolling landscape of Teesdale to the west. Further up the spiral staircase is the romantic bedroom with double bed on an oak floor adorned with Persian rugs. The rich colours reflect the Tudor love for golds, reds and rich greens which are highlighted with mood lighting enhancing the exposed timber beams above. Windows to east and west provided views of the walled garden and the high moors beyond.
