Best Western Beamish Hall Hotel is an 18th-century manor house in Northumberland, halfway between Durham and Newcastle. The property is set in 24 acres of parkland -- take a stroll through the landscaped gardens or visit Beamish Wild, a high ropes assault course in the treetops (fees apply).

Inside, this grand property still retains many of its original features, with ornate furnishings, carved oak fireplaces, stained glass windows and a grand sweeping staircase. Rooms are individually designed and feature antique furnishings -- Deluxe Rooms are more spacious than Classic Rooms.

The historic stable block has been converted into a bar and restaurant, where "regional producers supply the best local ingredients" (The AA). Here you can sample the pub's own real ales, which are brewed on site at the hotel's microbrewery -- the property can arrange tours for an extra charge. There is also an Edwardian tearoom that serves traditional afternoon tea.

The open-air Beamish Museum -- which tells the story of life in northeast England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s -- is five minutes' drive or 20 minutes' walk from the property. You can also drive north to explore "vibrant and handsome" (Rough Guides) Newcastle or head south to visit the university city of Durham, "home to England's most beautiful Romanesque cathedral" (Lonely Planet). Both can be reached in less than 30 minutes by car.

The beds were really comfortable and the bathroom was very modern even so we had a small leak which was dealt with immediately. The food was good but it was a pity we had to go outside to get to the Stables restaurant where dinner was served. As a disabled guest I would not return.
Other Comments
I had a little problem, as when we booked in and only then I was told that there was stairs to the Eden room where breakfast was served so we had to have room service which was a bit dried when it came My husband would go back but not me. mainly because of the steps.
