Castles you can sleep in in England
1) Kingswear Castle
An entire 16th-century castle, perched on the rocks opposite Dartmouth, can be yours for a weekend. It’s not huge – it sleeps four in two bedrooms – but it feels mighty. Kingswear is all chunky walls, ancient stone floors and proper battlements, sat right on the edge of the surf with unrivalled views out to sea. Completed in 1502, Kingswear Castle was once designed to defend the harbour, but now it’s a special setting for a whiling away peaceful hours. The best spot is the roof terrace, where you can watch boats and wildlife bob past, and raise and lower your very own flag.
