LABOUR OF LOVE
Scargill Castle made the news when it was purchased in 1999 as a wedding present. Back then it was a derelict ruin with no roof, floors or windows. In fact it had been highlighted by English Heritage as a Building at Risk.
The first phase of restoration at Scargill took place in 2000-1. This phase of restoration repaired the roof and chimney, inserted new floors, internal doors and windows and new massive oak doors were made for the front. Grant aid and specialist support from English Heritage, Teesdale District Council and the European Union made much of the works possible.
The Castle was reopened as a romantic retreat in May 2012 and immediately couples keen to celebrate their wedding anniversaries and honeymoons flocked to stay. Marriage proposals were made and accepted and others just came to get away from it all. Scargill Castle has now made the journey from romantic ruin to romantic retreat and awaits your visit. Make Scargills history part of your history.
