Bursting with old-fashioned charm (past guests note that it's a little like stepping back in time), this Georgian house is set in landscaped grounds in a North Northumberland location that appeals to both nature lovers and fans of English heritage sites.
The hotel is minutes from Budle Bay and its bird sanctuary, while further down the coast is the village of Seahouses, where you can hop on a boat to the Farne Islands, known for grey seals and puffins. The village of Bamburgh, with its majestic castle, is just five minutes' drive away. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, where you'll see another striking castle, as well as a priory and a stunning stretch of beach, is 20 minutes away.
The hotel's restaurant, Grays, has been awarded two AA Rosettes for the modern British dishes served its romantic dining room every night (for a supplement payable direct to the hotel; booking recommended). Look for dishes such as pan-seared scallops with creamed cauliflower and a curry dressing, or slow-cooked Northumberland lamb with a caper berry and vegetable brunoise. There's also a cellar stocked with fine wines. Guests can also relax in the gardens or the antique-filled lounge. There's free Wi-Fi in public spaces and some guest rooms.
The 13 cosy rooms are individually decorated -- some ensuite bathrooms have showers, others have baths. Two ground-floor rooms have access to a pretty inner courtyard, and there are three suites. Bed-and-breakfast rates are also available.
