Dominating the Country Durham landscape for the past 600 years, Lumley Castle cannot help but impress. The place has a real sense of theatre and as a guest you are left in no doubt that you are in a proper castle. The magnificent state rooms, along with other public areas, are very well presented in accord with all expectations. Bedrooms differ in style, size and type and make good use of all available space. The staff are warm and welcoming, and quality food is served throughout.
