Tucked away on the East Coast of the United Kingdom, in the hamlet of Weldon Bridge, The Anglers Arms serves as a starting point for those wanting to explore Northumberland’s vast countryside. Culture seekers may take advantage of its convenient location and visit Cragside, a National Trust Victorian House and Gardens, as well as the English Heritage Site of Brinkburn Priory, both a mere ten-minute drive from the inn.
The bedrooms feature red colour schemes and come fitted with TVs, Internet access and en suite shower rooms.
For a flavourful start of the day, the bar serves up hearty breakfasts prepared with local ingredients, while a wide variety of light meals and drinks are also available.
Relaxing moments may be spent on the hotel’s private fishing lake, home to native brown trout and other slippery fins.
Groupon’s Guide to Northumberland
Hiking trails and cycle paths weave through the natural beauty of Northumberland’s rolling fields, and along the windswept shores of the sweeping coastline.
The bustling market town of Morpeth is stuffed full of gems, including a 13th-century chantry housing a bagpipe museum. Travellers may 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. A 15-minute drive through the Northumberland countryside will bring guests to the Alnwick Castle and its adjacent gardens. Alternatively, visitors may take a journey to see the Palladian facade of Paxton House, found on the banks of the River Tweed. This stately home sits on 80 acres and boasts a picture gallery which houses over 70 paintings. A short way over from Paxton House stands the walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, whose Elizabethan fortifications were built to keep out invading Scots and create fantastic viewing points for modern day visitors.
