A rural 14th-century castle near Durham - includes breakfast, dinner on one night, and late check-out

  • Standing proud on the Durham skyline, Lumley Castle is a magnificent 600-year-old spectacle among stretching parklands. Overlooking the River Wear and Durham’s cricket grounds, this historic hotel has played host to bona fide kings and princes and the imposing 14th-century exterior makes way for opulent interiors.

  • Knights Restaurant provides an elegant setting for award-winning dining. Enjoy classic dishes like steak tartare and beef Wellington amid low lighting and lavish furnishings. There’s also the Library Bar for drinks and a choice of afternoon teas can be taken within the inner courtyard.

  • Found in the castle itself, Castle rooms are all romantically decorated in a rightly regal style, which combines modern amenities for a perfect stay. Unsurprisingly, this elegant hotel is the proud owner of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
