My wife and I were very kindly offered to stay at this wonderful location for four days, and I have to say it was amazing! The Castle is not only magnificent from the outside, but it is just as amazing on the inside. The welcome we received was very warm, friendly and had a real homely feel to it. The bedroom was exactly what you’d expect when staying in a Castle with a certain quirkiness to it but with up-most comfort and style. The lounge and bar area were also fantastic, but due to the wonderful weather we opted to spend most of our time outside enjoying the views of the Lake District.
The location of Augill Castle allowed a short drives into the Lake District and after a long days exploring the Lakes it was a short drive home to comfortable surroundings and a peaceful relaxing atmosphere.
I’ve been kindly offered these breaks before but have always declined as I just wanted to be ‘fixed’ and I felt time away from rehabilitation was time wasted. However, I never realised how much I, and more importantly my wife, needed this break. Having been injured for a couple of years and having undergone three surgical procedures in just the last year it has taken it toll with work and home. We truly appreciate the opportunity given to us by ‘Give us time’ and Augill Castle (Wendy and her family) and wish to thank everyone involved for their support and generosity.
