          Enjoyed our stay here. Cold night in April. No heat but space heater kept us warm on bottom bunks. Beautiful morning. Spacious kitchen, neat dining hall, beautiful grounds. Hostess and dog were very friendly. Very intriguing for this middle-aged woman!

          Is Foulksrath castle closed now
          2 June 2016|
          Answer
          Response from paul_hopkins | Property representative |
          Yes, I think it closed in 2008/9. There was also a fire. It is now privately owned, undergoing major repairs and currently not open to the public. More info can be found at: facebook . com/FoulksrathCastle
