Your Castle in Cumbria

Quality time together – a different space and time

Your castle awaits

Picture a space where you can gather as one.

A home from home. Relax, unwind, celebrate. The memories and the stories are yours for the making. This is Rose Castle.

The Rose Castle Company operates the castle, and has been hugely inspired by the Rose Castle Foundation and its focus on “guest” and “host” hospitality.

Our Rose Castle Company team assists you as the “host” of your invited guests, combining exclusive use of the whole castle and grounds with a style of hospitality that authentically delights, supports and nourishes.

Many bishops have resided here over the castle’s 800-year history from 1230 until we purchased the castle in 2016. After a multi-million pound renovation project, we finally re-open this coming winter.

We bring you time. Time with friends and loved ones. Time to regroup, times to remember forever.

A real wow factor wherever you turn. It's like real thought has been put into every room. Every detail...meticulously considered

Neil, London

Wow! is all I can say our very own castle in the Lake District for the weekend. Such a warm welcome and gorgeous, tranquil space for our anniversary. Real service.

Gary, Liverpool

Stunning views and beautiful window seats. So tranquil & quiet - inside and outside.

Pheobe, Bermuda

The Chinese room is out of this world! I absolutely love everything about it. Really like the way you are actively encouraged to move the furniture round to suit you and your guests.

Stuart, London

The perfect location for our board discovery day. At such an important time in our company's history, we needed real focus. Everything was considered all we had to do was build for the future!

Location

Set within the beautiful Caldew Valley, deep in the heart of Cumbria.

Private and secluded from the outside world. But so easy to get to. The castle is 20 minutes from the M6 and all The Lake District has to offer.
