With over 1000 acres of moorland on your doorstep, and right on the edge of the North Pennines, Slaley Hall Lodges offer a range of activities - or simply an opportunity to relax and recharge in this outstanding setting. The lodges nestle by the lake and there's a spa on-site with a range of therapies available for the ultimate in pampering.
Enjoy the indoor heated pool, sauna and steam room, work out at the gym and take some beautiful country walks. Want to get more active? Try archery, quad biking and practise your swing on the driving range before playing on both 18 hole golf courses. Slaley Hall has an à la carte restaurant and brasserie and there are plenty of shops and cafes in nearby Hexham.
These lodges really are the height of space and luxury - we love The Hexham, a two-storey A-frame lodge that sleeps eight people. It has two double rooms, both with ensuite showers, and two twin rooms, one with an ensuite. There's also a family bathroom, open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area and a verandah with garden furniture and wonderful views.
Newcastle is packed with shops, bars and restaurants - you can enjoy the buzzing nightlife and find out about its history at the Discovery Museum. It's free to get in and a great visitor attraction.
