Escape to the countryside with a charming staycation at The Northumberland Arms, The Peth, West Thirston, Felton, in Morpeth.
Originally a Coaching Inn built by Hugh Percy, 3rd Duke of Northumberland, in the 1820s, the building has been lovingly restored to offer all modern luxuries, with cosy indoor and outdoor seating areas – including a heated tipi – and six five-star en-suite bedrooms.
It has built a reputation for fantastic food, with the seasonal menus crafted by talented chefs who use Northumberland’s larder where possible.
The Northumberland Arms has a large outdoor seating area where guests can soak up the views of the tranquil Northumberland village, the stunning river Coquet, and a 16th-Century bridge.
Or, opt for a space in the newly added outdoor tipi restaurant which has heaters installed to keep out the chill on colder days.
The country pub is full of charm and character – wonderfully cosy yet full of modern touches. There are a range of drinks available at the bar including real ales on tap, a huge variety of gin and a selection of tonic from Northumberland-based Artisan Drinks Co.
