Photo of Lord Crewe Arms

“Located in the picturesque village of Blanchland, hanging basket heaven and the heart of walking country. A bounty of outdoor pursuits await you on the doorstep which is reflected in the hearty, better than gastro pub menu (think locally sourced salmon and game) and the country casual room decor.”

Hotel Review

One for the lovers of the great outdoors; for those who treat limited mobile reception as a welcome luxury. Lord Crewe Arms, brought to you by the owners of the popular Cotswolds' Calcot Manor, has all the charm of a boutique property, with village pub cosiness combined with a sprinkling of luxury. Rooms have a toned down country hunting lodge feel with exposed beams, rustic wood furnishings and plaid soft wool throws. Individual touches such as walking maps, hot water bottles and tea and coffee making facilities are a welcome bonus. Bathrooms are spacious, some include rolltop baths. Even the smaller rooms are of a good size and provide excellent value for money. Dining at Lord Crewe Arms is a more casual affair. Rustic menus have a northern twang. Try the roasted Weardale grouse followed by a drink in the cosy, medieval-style Hilyard Room and warm your toes in front of its cavernous fireplace. The perfect end to a bracing weekend away.
