We have invested significant funds into the Park to ensure each and every visitor a truly 5 star experience, whether they are investing in a holiday home or hiring for family holidays & mini breaks. Our vision and work has certainly paid off with the news of the Visit England award and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Witton Castle”.   Thomas Hague – Manager at Witton Castle Country Park.

The park, which is set among 330 acres of beautiful parkland, boasts an impressive 15th century Castle as a centerpiece, where much of the onsite activity and events are centered.
