Hotel Review

Surrounded by 300 acres of parkland and formal gardens, there’s little to spoil the view other than the odd golfer. The ancestral home of the Blackett family, it has retained all the impressive hallmarks of a 19th-century Gothic mansion - vast mullioned windows, balustraded roof and towering chimneys - if a little austere. Drawing room and dining room are suitably grand, with plasterwork ceilings and acres of drapes.

The modern wing with Germain de Capuccini spa, indoor pool and hi-tech gym, has been skilfully added. Most bedrooms are in this wing; spacious and contemporary-classic in style with warm colours. Rooms in the original hall are enormous with views over woodland or parkland, vast windows and furnished in traditional, English, country-house style; possibly a little stark for some tastes.

Eating choices range from fine dining in Emerald Restuarant to the a la carte dining in Cloister Restaurant or The Drawing Room for Afternoon Tea.

You can choose to be as active or as lazy as you like. There’s golf, walking, a Go Ape tree-top adventure course and Hadrian’s Wall on-site or nearby. Or just laze in the pool and Jacuzzi, book a spa treatment and have afternoon tea in the drawing room.

While the surroundings may be on the formal side, the service - with a staff-to-guest ratio around two-to-one - is top-notch but friendly.
