See inside historic Middleton Castle with 15 bedrooms, billiards room and croquet lawn which is now available to book for stays
A secluded castle built around 600 years ago is lowering its drawbridge to paying guests for the first time.
Middleton Castle, a fortress complete with a water-filled moat and embattled parapets, was built during the reign of King Henry VI – and is now giving visitors their own chance to live like a king or queen.
The castle, which can sleep 30 guests across 15 bedrooms with accommodation including two separate cottages, can now be booked for days, weeks or even months under the management of ALTIDO, part of the DoveVivo group.
Will Parry, CEO of ALTIDO, said: “We’re delighted to be opening the doors of this historic property.
“A castle of such proportion and size offers guests a luxurious, secluded retreat that doesn’t compromise when it comes to character and space.
“Our team will be using all their expertise to combine modern-day hospitality with a property that’s so old it predates the Tudors.”
The Grade II property, which dates back to 1450 and set within a 1,000-acre estate, has been restored and can now host large groups, corporate retreats and weddings or those who just want to live like royalty.
Steeped in history and set within the West Norfolk countryside, guests looking for a unique place to stay can enjoy freestanding baths, a billiards room, summer house, croquet lawn and a sweeping driveway whilst being guaranteed total privacy with exclusive use of the estate.
All of that comes at a price though, as, according to ALTIDO’s website – where bookings can now be made, stays at Middleton Castle are a minimum of three nights at a cost of £4,602 per night.
