About Castle Acre

castle_acre_photo_09

The village of Castle Acre was once a high status Norman town and even today it still has a very special atmosphere. This medieval walled town has its own bailey gate, 11th century castle and a Cluniac priory (English Heritage sites).
More about Castle Acre

Set in the north-west Norfolk village of Castle Acre the Old Red Lion offers excellent facilities in a peaceful atmosphere and extends a warm welcome to all at retreats, workshops and courses.

The Old Red Lion provides accommodation for groups, travellers, such as walkers, cyclists, as well as pilgrims.

Is it a B & B? Is it a hostel? Is it a retreat centre? Well it appears to take the best of all three. This is clearly what accommodation should be about.

A 17th-century inn Castle Acre, in Norfolk, is one of those time-warped spots that would be famous anywhere but England — we’ve just got too much history. Within the bailey of a Norman stronghold, the village includes a straggle of ruined ramparts, an 11th-century priory and the Old Red Lion: once an inn, now a kind of charmed commune, it’s part B&B, part bunkhouse, part retreat centre. Alison Loughlin is mother hen, staging yoga sessions and meditation weekends. It’s artsy, sunlit and stimulating: join in, or just relax and explore the castle ruins — they’re virtually in the back garden.
