Castles can be very romantic and offer a real taste of history. Perfect for weddings, special luxury breaks or if you just like the idea of a stay in a castle, you will find some castles in England and Wales. The largest numbers of castles can usually be found in Ireland and Scotland. Northumberland in England is good castle country for example.
Castles that have been converted to offer luxurious holiday home accommodation can be few and far between, adding to that 'special feel' of a castle holiday. Some find the idea of holding a wedding reception at a castle a romantic concept but do remember to check before booking if you plan to rent a castle for a special event. Some properties welcome bookings for wedding receptions, hen parties, stag parties or other special occasions whereas others don't.
