Our story is your story too – living history in the making
Being a real castle you’d imagine our history is a rich tapestry? Dating back to 1389, Lumley Castle boasts legendary stories of betrayal, epic tales of war, rumours of unrequited love, and a host of Royal visits and stunning pageantry across the centuries.
Today, Lumley Castle is a luxury 4 Star Hotel perfectly suited to discerning leisure guests, corporate clients, and foodies
who just love to indulge.
All are welcome to our beautiful castle. The genuine warmth of our people, our rich historical decor, and the sheer majesty of scale blend seamlessly to provide the start of your story…
Castle or courtyard?
We have 73 unique, individual bedrooms, decorated with furnishings which evoke a period of a bygone era. Think four poster beds, feature baths and rooms with stunning views over the parkland.

The elegant Knights Restaurant and our sophisticated private dining rooms provide the perfect backdrop for your tastebuds to savour the glorious flavours of Lumley’s fine food.
