Peckforton Castle was built between 1844 and 1850 for John Tollemache, the largest landowner in Cheshire at the time. Known to be somewhat eccentric, he built the castle as a residence in the style of a medieval castle. Tollemache's heirs sold the estate to a wealthy American woman who transformed it into a hotel. She sold the property to a family that staged a wedding in the castle and today Peckforton Castle operates as a Five-Star hotel and venue for weddings and corporate events.
