Country house near Hadrian’s Wall with a long history

AA Inspector

At a glance

Wheelchair accessible
Dogs welcome

This delightful country house has a history dating back to 1428, although the building today is very much the result of alterations carried out in the mid-19th century. The hotel is run by a friendly family team and their enthusiastic staff, and is set in beautifully landscaped Victorian gardens complete with an ornamental lake and stream. Lovingly restored over many years, it provides very high standards of comfort and hospitality. Gracious public rooms are very relaxing, and a lot of thought has gone into the beautiful bedrooms, many of which are simply stunning. Nearby are Hadrian's Wall and the Northern Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which both provide endless opportunities for walking and sightseeing.
