Castle Double room
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 surrounded by stretching parklands. Overlooking the River Wear and Durham’s cricket grounds, this historic hotel holds plenty of pomp and grandeur.
Rolling in regal revelry, Lumley Castle has played host to bona fide kings and princes and its imposing 14th-century exterior makes way for rather opulent interiors. When you finish playing royalty in the grounds and dining at the award-winning Black Knight Restaurant, make your way into Durham to gasp at one of the greatest cathedrals in Europe, meander down cobbled lanes and scope out the genteel countryside with its picturesque market towns and dramatic views. Lumley Castle carried off a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
