Formally the private residence of Mr. Theodore Holdengarde, The Nesbitt Castle was restored and reopened as a boutique hotel in 1990 by Mr. Digby Nesbitt. Medieval architecture with signature crenellations and ramparts echo an era when romance and chivalry were the hallmark of hospitality. That gracious ethos remains the signature of Nesbitt Castle today.

Featured in the 1992 blockbuster movie, The Power of One, written by Bryce Courtenay and directed by John G. Avildsen, The Castle has played host to such luminaries as Morgan Freeman, Stephen Dorf and Daniel Craig.

Ten gloriously individual suites lie behind our castle walls, stone-chilled in the heat of summer, cosy and welcoming for those cooler days. Be enchanted by the carved four poster beds, enviable antique collection and gothic curiosities that await you along every twisting passageway and behind every Gothic oak door.
