The bustling market town of Morpeth is less than three miles away, and is stuffed full of gems including a 13th century chantry housing a bagpipe museum. Take time to enjoy the award-winning Carlisle Park, which offers the opportunity for river boating and tennis, while a leisurely promenade takes in the ornamental hedges and trees of the William Turner Garden.
Road: The A1 runs past Newcastle towards Morpeth, and the hotel is conveniently located off a B road.
Train: Morpeth National Rail station is a ten minute drive from the hotel, offering regular departures to Newcastle where rail users can connect to other major cities.
Several local farms welcome visitors to see the animals, and their gift shops often sell locally-grown produce.
A king-sized 84% of LateRoomers would rest their heads at the Longhirst Hall Hotel again, while 230 TripAdvisor awarded the hotel a luxurious 4/5 stars. Guests found a healthy bit of R&R, thanks to the picturesque grounds and accommodating staff, although some found the rooms slightly dated.
From the minute we arrived the staff were very helpful and friendly, the food was excellent and the bedroom very comfortable especially the very large bed. The hotel is situated in magnificent grounds away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life very quiet and peaceful. Can’t wait to visit again.

The staff were helpful and friendly from the moment of our arrival. Our room was comfortable and peaceful location made it possible to see red squirrels running around in the branches of the trees right outside our window. The food was excellent and was hot and when I asked for more of something it was brought promptly and with a smile.
