Set in the tranquil and picturesque Northumbrian countryside, "The Crewe" dates back to the 12th century, and was built as the Abbot's Priory. The building has plenty of character from the vaulted crypt bar to the numerous large open log fires. Bedrooms come in three styles: Cosy, Canny, and Champion. The team are naturally friendly with two dining options serving "proper, unpretentious country grub".
