Buxton house description

Kinder Castle enjoys a magnificent isolated position on the side of the mountain Kinder Scout in the Peak District National Park, and yet is only 24 miles from Manchester city centre.

A former shooting lodge that has been host to some great Victorians and was the hideaway of Agatha Christie, the castellated fortress encompasses a late Medieval Banqueting Hall, an original Inn, and linked accommodation around the four sides of a beautiful courtyard, that make for the perfect rural retreat for family and friends to congregate and celebrate and also enjoy the peace and solitude.

The Castle is set within the 6,000 acre National Trust Kinder Estate, and is accessed through 30 acres of private woodland grounds affording the best panoramas of Kinder and the Reservoir, to which it has the exclusive fishing rights.

Kinder Castle is a luxurious base from which to explore the Peak District, and a very impressive place to entertain at home, with a wide range of on-site activities available.


The Main House can accommodate 18 people. The House boasts two stunning kitchens and eating areas, with the main Dining Room seating 18 people.

A separate wing of the Castle contains the original entertainment areas that would have served the shooting parties, comprising the Medieval Banqueting Hall, Garret and Pub. They are in their original state and take time to be heated and serviced and also need to be preserved. These areas are available for residents to hire separately for special meals, drinks, dancing, workshops and gatherings at an additional cost. They are also available for weddings and parties to include additional guests, which will incur a venue hire charge at an additional £700 per week.

The Medieval Banqueting Hall can accommodate up to 50 people to dine, plus 30 people in the Garret room, and the Estate can host larger parties for events using various tenting options when booked as a venue.
