“A relaxed and very comfortable, traditional, country-house hotel run by the owning family with charm, warmth and great friendliness. Expect plenty of sofas, five-course dinners and a delightfully unpretentious atmosphere.”

Hotel Overview

“The archetypal country-house - creeper-covered walls, early-Victorian styling, rolling lawns - this place feels more like a home than hotel. Originally a grand, private house, it became a hotel in the 1960s; the current owning family are now second-generation, and guests are welcomed like friends. Rooms are generously furnished with sofas, lamps, richly patterned wallpapers and heavy curtains. The style is definitely traditional - some might call it old-fashioned - but with a welcoming personal touch rather than anything overly designed.
Bedrooms are all about comfort; generous in size (even the standard rooms have space for sofas) with a mix of antique and reproduction furnishings, thick curtains and plenty of thoughtful touches such as books, hair spray and pretty jars of sweets. Dinner is a formal affair - drinks in the lounge before a five-course meal in a room glistening with silver cruets and cut glass. Afterwards, it’s a joy to curl up in a sofa by the fire with delicious petits fours and a digestif. Service throughout is attentive, kindly and relaxed.”

See What They Say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
We are a family owned and run hotel offering consistently high standards of fine food with attentive service from a team of local staff in a truly relaxed atmosphere. Large lounges with open fires give everyone the space they need to enjoy staying at Farlam.

What is there to do in the area ?
Hadrian’s Wall is obviously a big attraction and the nearest part is only about 4.5 miles away. There is plenty of walking, historic houses and gardens to visit, fishing, golf, shooting – both grouse and pheasant - and even Carlisle Airport for pleasure flights or lessons.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
We offer a fully serviced English breakfast where you do not have to help yourself to anything.

Do you offer other meals? We serve dinner every evening. We are out in the Country so the only other places to eat locally tend to be Pubs.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?
All our rooms are different so people have favourites because of either size, colour, and position.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
As a family we have owned and run Farlam Hall for nearly 39 years and we still enjoy meeting and looking after our guests. We hope you will come to Farlam, relax and enjoy your time with us.”
