the Renovation

The renovation project will be a long process. To date we have cleared the site from trees and bushes, emptied some rooms of rubble, removed the ivy and secured stone work where necessary and cleared the courtyard.

Our long term plan is to restore the whole castle. As the internal fittings have either been removed or severely damaged we plan to replace as sympathetically as possible using modern products and techniques.

The first phase has begun with the conversion of the old gas house into a tea room and small shop that will service our visitors and volunteers. We have cleared the courtyard and have arranged for the new roof to be replaced later this year.

The courtyard will be turned into a delightful glass roofed bar. The rooms around the courtyard will be turned into specialist bar areas such as a whiskey bar, craft beer bar and champagne room. The area will provide an intimate social setting.

The next phase is to reinstate the scullery and castle kitchen so that we can provide facilities for weddings on site. This will tie in with the introduction of a luxury glamping venue in the forest. Weddings will start off as a marquee on the tennis court lawn and then with the renovation of the chapel and dining room in the castle this will move inside the main building. 

The rest of the castle will provide three self contained luxury apartments for our children to make into their homes in the future. The rest of the castle will be used for events and a boutique hotel. 

There is soo much work ahead! 

We regularly run volunteer weekends at the castle and love to share our passion for the place. If you would like to volunteer please do get in touch.
