Scargill Castle was built in 1560 on the site of an earlier medieval castle and is now an ideal romantic retreat for 2 in the beautiful Teesdale landscape. The historic building is full of character while having many of the cosy comforts from the 21st century.

The accommodation is spread over 3 floors, each connected by a stone spiral staircase. The ground floor with stone floors & underfloor heating consists of an entrance hall below an arched roof, a well equipped kitchen with breakfast table looking out to the garden, a large bathroom with roll topped bath ideal for a long soak after a long day exploring & separate steam shower cubicle. Moving on we reach the dining room with a beautiful long oak table, stone floors and oak ceilings with beautiful rural views through arched glass and oak doors.

Upstairs to the first floor is the cosy sitting room with wood burning stove and a window seat with scenic views, ideal for curling up with a good book. On the top floor you will find the double bedroom with exposed beams and superb view. There is central heating on these floors to keep you warm & cosy.

The fully enclosed large courtyard gardens are accessed through full height oak double doors from the entrance hall, where outdoor seating can be found, ideal for al-fresco dining on the BBQ to take in the stunning views.
