This Father’s Day, spring a surprise on your dad and spoil him with an experience at our magnificent country estate. Boasting a stunning range of restaurants and bars, beautiful bedrooms and an impressive golf course, our Northumberland paradise provides a selection of ways to show him just how much he means to you.
Book him a luxurious stay
If your dad loves to get away from it all, our unequalled paradise is the perfect location for a Bed & Breakfast stay. Our 65 suites, ranging from Classic to Luxury, provide spacious, luxurious and sophisticated accommodation for dads who love to spend time with their loved ones and those who deserve a break on their own.
We also offer an extensive list of additional services that can be used to personalise your dad’s stay. Private chauffeur transfers, late check-outs, a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne and dog-friendly suites are just some of the luxury services we provide to ensure your dad’s time at our historic estate lives long in the memory.
Indulge him in a memorable dining experience
Our selection of restaurants, bars and lounges offer a range of different dining experiences, but each one provides a remarkable fusion of flavours. Your dad can choose to indulge in a Sunday Lunch or fine dining that is exclusive to Emerald Restaurant. Or perhaps, he’d prefer a delicious gastro-pub style dish in the informal atmosphere of Keepers. For a night to remember, steak and seafood classics can be enjoyed in Cloisters Restaurant and Bar, where he’ll dine amongst our courtyard’s original architecture. And, to really set the tone for your dad’s evening, our expansive glass ceiling, offers terrific views of our Great Hall’s majestic stained-glass window.
Treat him to a professional wine-tasting experience
Should your dad see himself as a wine expert or simply demonstrates a fleeting interest, our newly-opened Wine Cellar boasts an extensive selection of wines. Secluded beneath our Great Hall, this charismatic space allows both novices and aficionados to gain professional insight from our experienced Sommelier via private gatherings, celebrations and experiences.
Spoil him with a golfing experience
Boasting 27 holes of championship-level golf, a team of PGA professionals and a 10-bay driving range, our facilities tee your dad up for a memorable day. Surrounded by our vast parkland and including enjoyable challenges, such as our traditional ‘Ha-Ha’ wall, our courses provide the perfect setting for your dad to improve his game.
Our courses are so extensive that we have designed the perfect package to ensure keen golfers can tackle each and every challenge. Our Golfer’s Getaway allows your Dad to play all three courses, as well as our Par-3 course over two days, while also staying in one of our beautiful bedrooms. He’ll also be able to make the most of The Retreat, our relaxing spa, as well as a delicious à la carte breakfast the following morning.
Ensure he unwinds with a spa treatment
For a Dad who deserves a truly relaxing experience, The Retreat, our tranquil spa, offers treatments that soothe and ease sore muscles. And, our luxury pool allows him to unwind with an immersive dip while time spent in our thermal suites will leave him feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Allow him to choose
If you’re still struggling to think of how you can show your Dad just how much he means to you this Father’s Day, our selection of Gift Vouchers allows him to select from beautiful dining experiences, relaxing stays, harmonious spa treatments and enjoyable golf challenges.
Open the door to Northumberland and beyond
When staying at our magnificent country estate, your Dad can be spoilt with excursions into a Northumberland that lies far from the ordinary tourist trail. While UNESCO World Heritage Site Hadrian’s Wall, situated nearby, remains a firm favourite of all who stay with us, we can arrange bespoke walking tours of all local landmarks. We can also arrange tickets for historical landmarks Vindolanda and Chesters Roman Fort to be booked. If your dad loves to carve his own trail, we are ideally located to discover Northumberland highlights such as Sycamore Gap, Wareshaw Linn Waterfall and Kielder Water & Forest Park.
Should your dad prefer paving stones and cobbled streets to countryside walks, our luxury hotel is located close to quaint market towns Corbridge and award-winning Hexham, while Newcastle upon Tyne is situated a short drive away. Playing host to a vast number of iconic highlights to explore and enjoy, Newcastle has a well-deserved reputation for providing visitors with a friendly welcome and different cultural experiences.
