  • Additional information

The Castle Hotel can be dated back to the 1630’s when it was a farmhouse and part of the Kirby Castle estate.

In the 18th century, one of the towers at Kirby Castle was demolished. Some of the bricks from the tower are said to have been used to repair the Castle farmhouse which now forms the Castle Hotel.

At one time the farmhouse was the largest employer of local people, producing Leicestershire cheese of excellent quality. In the courtyard you can still see elements of the buttery, pantry and a passageway that would have led into the kitchen.

For many years, rumours abounded of a network of secret passages that ran from Kirby Castle to the Old White House, a Grade II listed building in the village, and beyond as far as Bradgate. Though there is no evidence that this was ever the case, in 1975 a short passage from the Castle to the hotel was uncovered.

The estate eventually came up for sale in 1918, bringing to an end centuries of farming tradition. The Castle farmhouse lived on, however, eventually becoming a guesthouse and then the Castle Hotel. Eagle-eyed guests will spot many of the original period features in both the bar and bedrooms of the hotel.
