Boasting a fascinating history dating back to the 1300s, Eshott Hall Hotel in Northumberland is full of wonderful contradictions. The sweeping driveway is hugged by ancient trees which open out as you reach the striking Georgian building clad in wisteria, and waiting inside is an original blend of country house style and contemporary design.
There are many fabulous things that will stick in your mind about your stay at Eshott Hall but it’s the first impressions that really count, from its idyllic setting to the welcoming warmth that greets you the moment you step over the threshold.

Once inside you are immediately struck by the magnificent staircase that winds towards the resplendent, William Morris stained glass window.
