Get away from it all in England’s beautiful North East on our restorative break at one of the country’s finest stately homes. Redworth Hall Hotel is a grand Jacobean country house, built as a family home in 1693. Get a feel for what life was like in a ‘big house’, with baronial halls and sweeping staircases, surrounded by 150 acres of garden and woodland.
Now home to state-of-the-art health and leisure facilities, including a 17-metre indoor pool, fitness suite, outdoor tennis courts, sauna and steam room, it suits the modern visitor perfectly. The break includes a three-course, five-choice dinner with coffee each evening, and a special gala event, with bucks fizz reception and entertainment, will be held on the final evening.
Just a few minutes from Junction 58 on the A1(M), Redworth Hall makes a perfect base to explore the Northeast. Visit the award-winning ‘living’ Beamish Museum, depicting local life in the 1800s and 1900s, or Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience, the re-creation of an 18th-century seaport. Also, Bowes Museum, with its renowned art collection, is on the ‘must-see’ list for many visitors.
The nearby 14th-century Raby Castle, surrounded by a 200-acre deer park, is one of England’s finest medieval castles and is well worth a visit. Also, High Force, one of the most impressive waterfalls in England, and Durham for its castle and cathedral. There’s excellent shopping, too, at Gateshead Metro Centre for those in need of some retail therapy.
For history enthusiasts and nature lovers, this county has much to offer. Durham City was voted ‘Best City in the UK’ by Conde Nast’s Traveller magazine, and its striking cathedral, one of Europe’s finest examples of Norman architecture, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site 31 years ago. While you’re there, it’s worth going to Durham University’s Oriental Museum, devoted to the art and archaeology of the Orient. Nature lovers can walk amongst wild flowers and explore the imposing headland of Durham’s Heritage Coast.
