This late-Georgian manor house sits in 450 acres amid views of the Cheviots and wild Northumberland landscapes. Naturally, a hotel of this standing comes with a championship golf course and full complement of spa and health and fitness facilities. The upscale Dobson Restaurant –warm autumnal tones of russet and brick-red, linen-clothed tables and relaxed, professional service –makes a refined setting for well-conceived dishes. Ham hock terrine is accompanied by mustard mayonnaise, then main course brings roasted corn-fed chicken breast stuffed with sun-blushed tomato mousse and matched with sweet potato fondant, braised red cabbage and red wine jus. To finish, there's a classic lemon meringue pie with raspberry sorbet.
