OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Reached by a single-track road, the hotel feels very rural and secluded, wrapped in its own woodland. There are a handful of houses in Eshott village, yet none are visible from the hotel. A car is essential to explore the surrounding area. The beautiful sweep of Druridge Bay and the jolly seaside town of Amble (with boat trips to see the puffins on Coquet Island) are 15 minutes away, and Alnwick Castle and Garden is around 20 minutes.

By car: around 30 minutes from Newcastle and 2 hours from Edinburgh. Free parking available.

By train: direct trains from Edinburgh (1 hour 15 minutes) and London King's Cross (over 3 hours) to Morpeth. It's a 20-minute drive to the hotel. Book trains to Morpeth.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The house is a model of Georgian perfection: beautiful symmetry, wisteria-draped façade and deep sash windows. Inside, the well-proportioned public rooms have panelling, plasterwork ceilings, log fires and a careful scattering of paintings and ornaments. The colours are light and soft, while the furniture is traditional yet elegant.

THE FACILITIES

The elegant, fire-warmed lounge is a comfortable space to relax in; you can head to the terrace on warmer days, plus there's a clubby-style bar. For the active, there's a tennis court, croquet lawn and wellies to borrow if taking one of the woodland walks. Clay-pigeon shooting can also be arranged. Staff are largely from the local area and have the famous northeastern warmth.

Room types: Deluxe, Luxury, Lodge, Stable, Cottage

FOOD AND DRINK

Dining is intimate and elegant, and dishes are confidently crafted - lamb with courgette and red pepper Provençale and salsa verde, for example - but without fussy presentation. The service, too, is warm and friendly. Some of the produce comes from their kitchen garden.

The restaurant: locally sourced produce from the Northumbrian coast and countryside as well as the on-site kitchen garden, 2 AA Rosettes. Open daily for dinner 6-8.30pm. Guests are asked to book in advance.
