The medieval property can only be accessed via the castle's original stone arch and gateway stretching across the ancient bridge over the moat.

Once owned by 'The Stainless Knight', Brian Tunstall - a war hero who died at the Battle of Flodden in 1513 and was immortalised in a poem by Sir Walter Scott - the Thurland Wing has been extensively renovated to bring its 1,000-year past up to date.

However, the castle retains many original features including mullion windows and stone fireplaces.

A surviving feature of the castle is the ballroom, complete with Carrera marble fire place, carved linen-fold wood panelling dating back to the 1880s, and stained glass windows.

The Thurland Wing, Lancs., is a family property, with all three bedrooms offering en suite facilities and the master suite boasting dual-aspect views over the Lancashire countryside.

The updated kitchen has a traditional aga as well as a Belfast sink and a stunning large skylight.
