CHARACTER & STYLE

This 12th-century building could be a museum, with its flagstone floors, castle-like mullioned windows and enormous oversized fireplace in the dining room. The various public spaces provide relaxation, such as the upstairs lounge with barrel-vaulted bar and a light bright restaurant.

THE FACILITIES

The staff are all local Northumbrians and happy to please - whether it's to track down a phone left in a taxi or find the right sized pair of Wellingtons for a walk. Facilities include cookery demonstrations, nature walks and even stargazing with a local expert.
