Information For Peckforton Castle

Originally the home of Lord Tollemache and built in the early 19th Century, Peckforton Castle is the only intact medieval style Castle in the country.

Passing through the country lanes of Cheshire you can view the Castle on top of the Peckforton Hills from quite a distance away, be it that the surrounding forest hides all but a small part. As you turn off the lane and pass through the magnificent gate house, your journey is almost complete but the amazing experience continues. The meandering driveway takes you through the forest which in itself is of special scientific interest and then suddenly through the trees appears a large but beautiful fairytale castle.

An enchanting castle, captivating architecture, steeped in history will truly delight you and your guests. A magical backdrop for amazing pictures and videos, all combined with delicious award winning food and drink, and impeccable and considered service. You will be the only wedding at the Castle making your day a true fairy tale. Be it a civil wedding or civil partnership (both of which we are licensed for), traditional church ceremony, or planning just a small intimate day, Peckforton Castle truly is a fairytale setting for a memorable wedding.

With a choice of packages and rooms able to accommodate from 10 to 275 guests, stunning bedrooms, Tranquility for pampering, or Falconry for something a little out of the ordinary, Peckforton Castle will not disappoint. Peckforton Castle can make the most important day of your life even more special. Hold your wedding and wedding breakfast in this most breathtaking of venues; revel in the idyllic views of Cheshire. You can even take over the Castle exclusively for the day. The Castle grounds, the red sandstone walls, the mosaic floors, the vaulted dining rooms and the log burning stoves all make for vibrant photo opportunities whatever the weather. We host civil ceremonies, and our four licensed rooms can cater for any number of guests from 10 to 165 (Any day of the week).

You can mingle with your guests on the manicured lawn in front of the Castle using the Coach House as a perfect setting for reception drinks and photographs. If the weather is predictably ‘British’ then enjoy your canapés and drinks in the comfort of our Long Gallery. Peckforton Castle can offer a choice of four private rooms to host your wedding breakfast. All rooms are versatile with various seating options to cater for small or large parties.

We have a choice of rooms for your evening reception and can cater for as many as 275 guests. Our wedding team is happy to discuss your individual needs and requirements and tailor the event to you. This is all part of our personalised service. The Long gallery with its bar gives a comfortable but quieter location for those guests who want a change from the music (If using the Drawing room or Great Hall).
