The venue’s social media, PR & events executive Amy Grant told C&IT that the hotel expects to re-open its event spaces, but currently has no timeline for opening its drawing room.
"Around 25 per cent of the castle has been damaged, one of our main function rooms and some bedrooms have been affected. At the moment we are not in a position to say when we are likely to be holding events and conferences in the drawing room again, but we are hoping public spaces will be open from Friday onwards," she added.
Peckforton managing director Chris Naylor added that he hopes to see the refurbishment completed by December.
"The reopening of the Castle in a less than a week after this devastating fire is a true testament to the strength of our staff here at Peckforton. The incident was truly heartbreaking for me and the entire Peckforton family – my parents, brothers and sister but also my team. It is now time to move on. We are determined not to beaten and will come back bigger and even better than before."
Firefighters from across Cheshire and surrounding areas spent most of Sunday (19 June) fighting the blaze, which affected all of the hotel’s three floors, including bedrooms and offices.
A 36-year old man has been arrested on suspicion of arson.
Around 70 guests at the hotel were safely evacuated and there were no injuries.
Peckforton Castle offers team-building activities including gun dog training and Land Rover driving. The Great Hall and Drawing Room spaces both hold up to 180-theatre style.
