The Perfect Castle Venue For Romantic Weddings With Luxurious Accommodation

A castle has stood in the grounds at Rowton Castle for nearly eight hundred years, seeing many changes and alterations over the centuries.  It has remained primarily a family home until becoming a School for the Blind in 1940.  Following the schools departure in 1978, the castle was transformed in 1989 into a luxury country castle hotel, retaining the splendour of yesteryear whilst providing facilities for the most discerning of guests.

Rowton Castle History

In Camden's Britannia we read:

    More northward Caus Castle standeth and Rowton Castle near unto it, most ancient of all the rest, towards the west borders
    of the shire, not far from Severn, which Castle sometime belonged to the Corbets and now to the ancient family of Lyster.

    Before time it was the possession of John Le Strange of Knockin, in despite of whom Llewellyn,
    Prince of Wales laid it even with the ground as we read in the life of Sir Fulk Fitz Warin. It flourished also in the Romans time
    under the same name, termed by Antonius the Emperor, "Rutunium."

As you can see, our Castle has a long and colourful history, and we are delighted to report that it has fully recovered from the alterations of Llewelyn, Prince of Wales.  Subsequent generations have added and taken away and we are left today with a Hotel of amazing beauty, set in the stunning scenery of Shropshire.
