Castleton House dates from 1902. Castleton House is most attractive stone built mansion house, which sits within it’s own private and sheltered grounds. The property was constructed in 1902, for Sir Thomas Wedderspoon, and was in private ownership until 1989 when it was converted to an award winning country house hotel with a separate cottage to the rear. From 2010 the property was used for upmarket, self catering holiday lets. Between 2015 and 2018 a number of renovations were made to the house, including replacing the upstairs windows with double glazed units, installation of two new boilers, removal of commercial kitchen and fire screens, and replacement of a large roof cupola, which spills light on to the staircase. Since 2018 an even more impressive amount of improvements has been made, making the property the stunning, luxurious mansion it is today.
Internally the works have included redecorating throughout, so the house is now beautifully presented. New carpets have been fitted, along with Amtico flooring in the hall, drawing room, dining room, ante room, kitchen, breakfast room and utility room. The kitchen and utility room were also fully refurbished, as were three bathrooms and three shower rooms. At the same time two new pressurised hot water tanks were fitted, and the electrical and fire detector systems were upgraded. The roof over the billiards room was renewed and three new wood burning stoves were installed. The cottage was also redecorated and refurbished, and its boiler renewed. All the works were undertaken sympathetically and original features still remain such as lovely cornicing’s, original fireplaces and panelled doors.
