A unique place to stay. Really enjoyed the freedom to look around the castle and grounds (free admission for residents). A lovely warm welcome from Nicky, and bumped into Sir Humphry a couple of times who chatted to us about the castle. Cosy stay in The Guardroom, with a brand new fitted kitchenette. Loved the surrounding area. Well worth a visit.

I guess some people find Chillingham interesting but for us it was a waste of money. It’s full of so much stuff that it’s difficult to see what it could be like uncluttered. I’m sure some find it quirky but we really didn’t take to it. The garden had no interest at this time of year although it showed potential for the summer. Wouldn’t recommend or return.

Visited today although we weren’t going to pay to go in after reading negative reviews. Soooo glad we did. What an amazing visit. Don’t try to compare with other castles/stately homes, Chillingham is Chillingham and, for us, was absolutely superb. Just take a good good look around, there’s so much to see inside and no, it’s not pristine but it truly reflects history so don’t be put off by the negative reviews. The gardens are wonderful too and so is the lake!!!

I would say the nicest castle in the north east not just a castle but a home to the wakefield family, lady wakefield often found working in the garden and Max Wakefeild of driving one of his caterpiller bulldozers
You cant see everything on one visit the collection is vast

Our second stay at this wonderful castle. Loved both the apartments, the Lookout and the Tower. Great atmosphere, lovely gardens, quirky, not your normal touristy castle. Did the ghost tour on our first stay and it was brilliant and set the atmosphere for the rest of the stay. Loved wandering round the castle and gardens in the middle of the night. Not to expensive.Love this place and can’t wait to stay there again. Met Sir Humphrey briefly on our first stay and he was very friendly and stopped and chatted to us
