Upgraded to a state-of-the-art four star accommodation, this 14th century fortified stronghold, Langley Castle has kept all of its imposing medieval architecture and integrity. Further north, sit the famous Roman fortifications known as Hadrian’s Wall, and the medieval Hexham Abbey, while nature enthusiasts can stroll through the Northumberland National Park and admire its rich landscape and wildlife. Tucked away among 10 acres of woodland in the Northumbrian Valley, this hotel provides rooms boasting views over the landscaped grounds of the castle. The double AA Rosette-awarded restaurant serves carefully selected dishes consisting of locally sourced produce, seasonal fish and fresh local game alongside a wide list of fine wines. For an intimate setting and a relaxing drink, guests are welcomed to the drawing room, where the stained glass windows and the classic log fireplace capture the medieval aura of this abode.
