Dubbed as the castle’s crowning glory, Carr Hall Castle’s 12-acres of ground including stately gardens, private woodlands, manicured lawns, lake complete with rowing boats, working water mill, cobbled courtyard and deer park setting is the majestic blend that will take your breath away.
Thankfully, there are lots of family-friendly activities that can be done whilst on your stay at Carr Hall Castle. Nearby there are outdoor activities such as clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, archery, golf, horse riding and tennis coaching available. There is also adrenaline-fuelled fun, including Go Ape and Go-Karting to intriguing museums that can entertain the kids in the nearby cities. For something more chilled, visit one of the large open park areas to have a picnic and enjoy the sun.
We like to pride ourselves on being dog friendly and do allow guests to bring along their furry friends on their luxury break at Carr Hall Castle. There are many trails and bridle paths around the castle grounds that are ideal for dog walks. We allow two well-behaved small to medium sized dogs, but please note, dog rates to apply and are charged per dog.
walk in nature
There is nothing more soothing than a walk early in the morning when the air is fresh to help you unwind, boost endorphins and improve moods. A walk around the woodlands can allow you to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of nature. The trails and bridle paths are perfect for walks with dogs too!
The luxurious suede sofas in the sitting room, the log fire, 3D plasma TV, panoramic window with views towards the swimming pool and sound system provides the best place in the castle for a movie night. Get the snacks ready and get yourselves comfortable.
We have two walks for our guests, the lakeside walk taking in the tranquil surroundings and a chance to spot some wonderful wildlife. We have now launched our newly constructed beehive walk where you can see our very own honey beehives.
Have a paddle on the boating lake and then enjoy a glass of champagne afterwards taking in the lovely English summer scents. It is a perfect activity to be enjoyed at the castle on a pleasant day, taking in the surroundings.
The cobbled courtyard and second terrace with seating are superb areas for any gathering large or small and if the weather permits a BBQ with friends and family. Not to forget the hot tub which is great for entertainment.
Come sunset when the skies begin to darken, the garden lights come to life and illuminate the castle into the perfect romantic setting. Sat on the terrace’s rattan sofas beside the tranquil lake with the chimenea burning away, there’s nothing more relaxing at Carr Hall Castle.
