Augill Castle

The feel

Augill Castle has a long tradition of memorable hospitality. During its 160 years, the castle has retained much of its enchanting atmosphere. It is a place where the background is filled with the charming sounds of creaking floorboards, ticking clocks, and distant laughter. Interesting antiques lurk in every corner, and artifacts on every mantle have a genuine story to tell.
Today, Simon and Wendy Bennett run the castle in a modern, informal style, with one overriding tenet: to do everything they can to ensure guests leave feeling they have stayed with friends. Their warm and welcoming approach transforms every stay into a unique and personal experience, making each guest feel at home within the castle’s historic walls.
Augill Castle is also licensed to hold civil marriages, making it an exceptional venue for weddings. The castle can host a formal wedding breakfast for up to forty guests, with room for sixty for less formal celebrations. There is no formula, no set packages. Each wedding at Augill is as unique as the setting itself. Simon and Wendy work closely with each couple to tailor every detail, ensuring that the day reflects their individual tastes and personalities.
The castle boasts 14 beautiful bedrooms and suites, providing accommodation for 28 adults and up to 10 children. Whether you are looking to book a single room or the entire castle for your wedding, Augill Castle offers a range of options to suit your needs. Exclusive hire, fully catered, allows guests to immerse themselves in the castle’s charm, with personalised service that enhances every moment of your stay.
Augill Castle is more than just a place to stay; it is a destination where history and hospitality blend seamlessly. From intimate family gatherings to grand celebrations, the castle provides a picturesque setting that leaves a lasting impression. Whether you’re exploring the beautiful gardens, relaxing in one of the cosy lounges, or enjoying your wedding breakfast in the elegant dining room, Augill Castle offers an experience that is both timeless and unforgettable.
