Nestled on the foothills of Alston Moor, the Lovelady Shield is Between Carlisle and Newcastle, a perfect pit-stop for exploring many of the North’s best attractions. Walking and cycling opportunities lie just outside the hotel’s front door, while those wanting to explore further afield can visit the North of England Lead Mining Museum, which truly captures the essence of the area’s history, culture and identity just a 15-minute drive away. The town of Carlisle is an hour’s drive away, as is Durham, with its cathedral, riverside bars and quaint streets.

The Stay

Lovelady aims to create a homely yet luxurious feel, with its rosette-awarded restaurant, cocktail bar, lounge area and en suite rooms with tea-making facilities. Upon arrival at the hotel, guests can relax and enjoy the building and the grounds, before making their way to the dining room for the seven-course tasting menu. Dishes such as pea veloute, pan-fried scallops and roast rack of lamb feature on the tasting menu, which is concluded by coffee. Guests can also opt to upgrade to include wine pairings with each course. Come morning, before heading out to explore the hotel’s enticing locale, guests are set up for the day with a cooked breakfast, served on each morning of the stay.
