6 Regal Hotels in the UK and Ireland for an Autumn Break

You won’t be surprised to hear that “seclusion” and “staycation” have been two major themes among our members looking for autumn getaways, so we’ve pinpointed a selection of remote castles that tick both these boxes. The six country estates below really come into their own in autumn, when fires are lit and the surrounding wilderness turns into a kaleidoscope of burnt oranges and reds.

These are also among our 2,500-strong Global Hotel Collection, meaning you can enjoy a room upgrade on arrival, complimentary breakfast, early check-in and late checkout, and credit to spend during your stay.

Some benefits may be subject to availability.

Dromoland Castle

County Clare, Ireland

As you drive through dense woodland and catch the first glimpse of the towers and turrets of Dromoland, you witness a scene that has remained unchanged since the 16th century. A recent $23 million renovation has brought this incredible castle into the modern age while retaining all its historic charm.

Inverlochy Castle Hotel

Fort William, Scotland

Backed by a pine forest on the east bank of the River Lochy, the 19th-century castle overlooks the sharp ridges of the mighty Ben Nevis – a view that’s enjoyed from all 17 homely guest rooms. You’ll want to spend most of your time exploring the sprawling 75,000-acre Achnacarry Estate.

Ashford Castle

County Mayo, Ireland

Once the estate of Lord Ardilaun and the Guinness family, Ashford opened as a luxury hotel in 1939. Food plays a major part in any stay here and the glorious George V restaurant is fine dining at its best. Our members also love the cinema, library, beautiful spa and excellent fly-fishing spots on its doorstep.

Glenapp Castle

Girvan, Scotland

With guest rooms overlooking the Firth of Clyde, this west coast castle is miles from civilisation and offers a complete escape from the modern world. The restaurant focuses on seafood caught that day, and falconry, boating, archery and shooting will give you the opportunity to spend lots of time among the area’s incredible landscapes.

Amberley Castle Hotel

Sussex, England

This is one of the oldest in our Collection and the current building dates in part back to 1103. Whether you’re playing croquet beneath the battlements or dining under the restaurant’s vaulted ceiling, the hotel’s rich history is evident everywhere. With dedicated kids’ activities, it proves popular with families, too.

Palé Hall Hotel & Restaurant

Bala, Wales

Let’s be honest, there are two types who travel to Snowdonia: those who sleep in tents and aim to summit Snowdon, and those who indulge their nesting instincts and check into Palé, an old-school, luxury country house that prioritises fine dining and idyllic woodland gardens to hill climbing.
