“An "18th century country house that has been lovingly restored" set in an expansive and stunning 375 acre estate. Also home to the "largest golf course in the UK", "three superb restaurants" and "an award winning spa", Rockliffe Hall certainly offers more than enough to entertain as a country getaway. The Orangery Restaurant is under the direction of Michelin Star chef Kenny Atkinson - a delicious meal undoubtedly awaits after a day out exploring the extraordinary surrounding countryside. What's more, a "touch of glamour" has been added to the interior of the hotel, perhaps appealing to the city goers coming for a country break with style.”
This gothic mansion outside Darlington gets our vote for the excellent free thermal suite..
