Newest Review: ... really tasty biscuits (chocolate chip and orange were my favourites!). Next to the TV was a small hanging area which had a trouser press incorporated into it which was quite useful for Mr Tart's trousers as we'd been travelling for a few days. In one corner of the room, up some steps, was a corner bath, with an elaborate curtain around it should you need privacy. This also had a shower ... more

Myself and Mr Tart recently took a trip up north which he offered to organise. On the drive up there he kept joking that we were going to a campsite. While I didn't believe that I was definitely surprised when we turned up at Lumley Castle. Being a historian, staying in a 14th century castle was like a dream for me and excited didn't quite cover it! THE CASTLE Lumley Castle was originally built turned into a castle in the late 14th century by Sir Ralph Lumley. After various transfers of ownership, including Durham University, it was taken over the 'No Ordinary Hotel' group in the 70s. CHECKING IN The Castle has ample car ... Read the complete review

I was lucky to be able to stay at Lumley castle several times with my partner and it was absolutely beautiful and an utterly elegant experience. After a long drive from London to Lumley the drive is a drag and with long motorways, and of course the unelegance of the northern roads and surrounding area to then drive up the drive of lumley is beautiful and a breath of fresh air. Upon arrival the reception is out of this world with an arched entarnce and original paintings on the ceiling and walls which are worn to show their date. The staircases are original and beautiful with an elegance of their own with lots of quirky hiding holes to explore, which we did ... Read the complete review

I am lucky enough to live about forty minutes away from Lumley Castle and my parents in law live about five minutes away so I have had the pleasure of going there many times. I have been to three weddings there and many Lunches and dinners and having just been for a big family christmas lunch I thought that it was a good time to write a review of it. =====History of Lumley Castle====== Lumley Castle has been around for over 600 years and stands majestically on a hill in the County Durham village of Chester le Street. In 1976 it was taken over by the group No ordinary Hotels and they created the luxury hotel that it is ... Read the complete review

I attend a wedding at Lumley Castle a week last Thursday (as photographer). Whilst we didn't stay over we did get to see the 'Bridal Suite' known as the King James Suite. Location - set on the outskirts of Chester-le-Street the hotel is on top of a small hill surround by trees it does give you the impression you're in the middle of nowhere, despite being 5 minutes from the A1. It's a great location for exploring the area, visiting Beamish, 15-20 minutes drive to the Coast or Newcastle/Metro Centre or 10 minutes to the historic town of Durham. It's also within walking distance (approx 10mins) of Durham County Cricket Club. There is a sweeping ... Read the complete review
