Facilities at Langley Castle

As well as the usual relaxing lounges and stunning grounds, being a 14th Century castle, Langley has some unique historical features for guests to explore. 

Garderobes

This tower is a most interesting facet of the Castle, as it was totally dedicated to Garderobes (medieval latrines) on an almost monumental scale. This lavish provision was a rare facility in castles and houses of the period. There are twelve Garderobes, four on each floor, each having a pointed arch to the recess, in which are stone corbels to carry the seats. The shafts discharged into a pit below, through which a stream of water could be diverted to flush it clean.

The number of Garderobes suggests that Langley Castle was intended from its inception to be well garrisoned, being more than just a family residence. These Garderobes are perhaps the finest remaining examples of this type and style of architecture in Europe.

Battlements

Every day after breakfast, there is a dedicated tour of the Castle and Battlements, conducted by a knowledgable member of staff.

Chapel - "The Cadwallader Bates Memorial Room"

Cadwallader Bates began the monumental task of restoration in 1882. Tragically, he died in 1902, and restoration was not completed until 1914 under the direction of his wife, Josephine. Josephine Bates personally supervised the final stages of Cadwallader's work and, with the permission of Pope Leo XIII, built a small Chapel to his memory in the Southeast tower.
Cadwallader and Josephine Bates are buried not one hundred yards from the main entrance of the Castle.

History of the hotel

The exquisite 27-bedroomed 14th century hotel property (built in 1350), has seen its interior razed to the ground during Border conflicts, had two of its owners meet a terrible end for supporting Jacobite uprisings, benefited from Pope Leo XIII's permission to have a consecrated castle on its 14th century battlements and trained young minds as a 1950s boarding school.

It has inspired J K Rowling for some of her Harry Potter content, and has had its medieval garderobes (toilets) declared possibly Europe's best example!.
