Experience the height of refinement and luxury in Glenapp Castle’s brand-new & self-contained penthouse suite, The Endeavour 

Glenapp Castle is a 17 bedroom Relais & Chateaux hotel tucked away on the breath-taking Ayrshire coast. Hidden at the end of a long windy road, the castle sits proudly in its landscape, within 110 acres of local woodland and private estate and comes complete with fairy-tale turrets and glowing sandstone crenellations. The hotel is set to launch The Endeavour, its brand-new, self-contained penthouse apartment in Spring 2021.

Through the conversion of the Castle’s entire top floor, The Endeavour provides 4,500 sq ft of luxurious accommodation. This penthouse is made up of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a kitchen and dining room, a TV snug, sauna, library, a games room, a private lift and a personal treatment room for massages. It is able to be offered on an exclusive and private basis with a full butler service and private chef, meaning those travelling with their friends or family will be able to enjoy the luxury of the hotel whilst maintaining complete privacy. However, if guests are able to be torn away from The Endeavour with its views of Ailsa Craig and Ireland, the hotel offers a magical Sea Safari to explore the remote Hebridean islands in search of incredible wildlife.
