Castle
Built in 1565, the Irishman's Tower is an idyllic rural retreat and the perfect base for exploring the richness and diversity of local Lancashire countryside, food and culture. The Tower occupies one of the former garrisons that interrupt the ramparts at the front of Hoghton Tower and thus commands spectacular views of our landmark driveway and the further Lancashire countryside. This two-storey, cosy historic property has been refurbished to the highest specification. All original features remain, but with a modern twist in design which will more than satisfy contemporary tastes. Facilities include a luxury spa bathroom, king-sized bed, flat-screen TV, open fire, iPod dock, internet access and welcome pack. The Irishman's Tower is available on a self-catering basis for up to two people...Built in 1565, the Irishman's Tower is an idyllic rural retreat and the perfect base for exploring the richness and diversity of local Lancashire countryside, food and culture.

Who wouldn't want to stay in their very own castle tower? Well fortified manor house technically but it looked like a castle tower to us. Our stay was great and well worth that bit extra for a novel weekend away. The accommodation was a mix...More
