Scargill Castle


Scargill was originally built in the late 12th century by Warren de Scargill whilst he was overseeing building work at the nearby Bowes Castle. King Edward II is reputed to have stayed at the castle in 1323.[1] In c.1550 it was rebuilt as a fortified manor house for Mary Scargill. It is a Grade 2* listed building and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The castle was used as a farm labourer’s cottage in the 19th century and was damaged during World War 2 when it was used for target practice by the Home Guard.[2] The castle was restored from 2000-2012 and opened in May 2012 as a romantic retreat with the facility for Tudor banqueting.
