Good Hotel Guide Review
In mature grounds a short drive from the coast stands this 19th-century gentleman’s country mansion. There is plenty of good cheer within: Guide readers on a return visit to the Tudor-gabled hotel were ‘enthusiastically welcomed back’ by owners Tessa and Christian Korsten. ‘We stayed during a quiet time midweek, but the fires were lit especially for us in the lounge and dining room, and they gave us the best window table at dinner.’ There are hunting trophies on the walls (the hotel is popular with shooting parties), and a ‘grand lounge’ is ‘full of settees and piles of The Field magazine’. On the upper floors, bedrooms have individual character in their traditional furnishings. Each is different: a large room with space for a sofa has been praised; another, with a small bathroom, was thought to need sprucing up. All rooms are well equipped with bathrobes and good toiletries; some have ‘far-reaching views towards the distant Cheviot hills’. In the evening, sit down to ‘wholesome, well-prepared dinners’ (‘not fancy, but enjoyable’) using game from the estate. Next day, ‘excellent kippers’ are among the ‘heaps of choices’ at breakfast.
Built by the Adam brothers in 1758, this is perhaps the finest example of a Palladian country house in Britain.
A Grade-I listed building, with activities centred around a Harry Potter theme.
An area of outstanding natural beauty, off the Northumberland coast.
