Over the next six and a half years, the castle was completely restored and refurbished and Glenapp Castle and its beautiful gardens and grounds have now been returned to their former glory, retaining all of their original character and atmosphere. Every room in the castle has been luxuriously decorated in traditional style, and furnished with carefully chosen antique furniture and original art (click to read the full story of the restoration).
In April 2000, the Cowans opened the doors of the castle as an exclusive luxury hotel. Their philosophy was simple:
Since the beginning, the castle has steadily won a string of awards and accolades and been recognised as one of the finest country house hotels in the United Kingdom. The castle has been a member of Relais & Châteaux since 2001 (click to view all Awards and Ratings).
The castle is open each year from late March until January 2nd (excluding Christmas) and is available for exclusive-use throughout the season.
We look forward to welcoming you to Glenapp Castle.
