Slaley Hall is an Edwardian mansion set in 1,000 acres and is a lovely location for an idyllic short break with its serene Northumberland countryside, two superb restaurants, popular spa and health facilities and two sprawling championship golf courses.
Get out and about and take advantage of the stunning grounds, unwind poolside before dining in Hadrian’s Brasserie, and after dark retire to the sumptuous whisky snug. The following morning, explore the hotel’s magical Ornamental Garden where you’ll find the outdoor pagoda – a beautiful backdrop with a difference.
With two championship golf courses, Slaley Hall has all the facilities for one of the best golfing experiences possible in the UK. The Hunting, renowned as the ‘Augusta of the North’, is a 7,000yard, par-72 Hunting with lush sweeping fairways, streams, lakes, towering trees and rhododendrons in abundance. Meanwhile, the beautifully maintained Priestman course can be found on the west side of the resort – with panoramic views of the Tyne Valley and stunning water features, it’s every golfers dream.
Rest easy in Slaley Hall’s luxurious accommodation. Alongside spacious classic and VIQ bedrooms, guests can choose to stay in a sumptuous suite with four-poster bed and marble bathroom, or for complete privacy an exclusive luxury lodge with bespoke furniture and fittings.
Slaley Hall offers British-inspired food with a contemporary twist and locally-sourced produce. In Hadrian’s Brasserie sit back and enjoy the stunning vista in an informal setting whilst indulging in a delicious meal, or treat yourself to a traditional afternoon tea in The Dukes.
Hosted in the luxurious Edwardian Drawing Room, Afternoon Tea in The Dukes is an irresistible example of fine British dining and provides the perfect celebratory venue with garden access. Served daily from 1pm-4pm, diners can choose from a classic array of sweet and savouries such as delicate finger sandwiches with gourmet fillings, home-baked plain and sultana scones served with Cornish clotted cream and red berry preserves, and expertly-prepared desserts including mixed macarons. As well as selection of loose leaf teas, you can opt for a glass of champagne or a Durham Gin cocktail.
As the sun starts to set, head over to the outdoor terrace, 19th Bar conservatory or cosy Claret Jug pub and golf clubhouse for a refreshing cocktail or craft ale with unrivalled views.
Slaley Hall supports locally produced brands including Durham Distillery, a small-batch craft distillery that makes gin, vodka and gin-based liqueurs, Wylam Brewery, the award-winning brewers based at the Palace of Arts in Exhibition Park near Newcastle city centre and Northumberland’s own Alnwick Rum.
