Recently I had need to go up to Newcastle, or Gateshead to be exact. Now I didn’t really fancy the hustle and bustle of the town so I decided to book here
The Ravensworth Arms
With its attractive stone exterior, set in a rural conservation area on a peaceful country lane in Lamesley village, The Ravensworth Arms Hotel is a traditional country inn. Close to the ruins of Ravensworth Castle, from which it takes its name, and in sight of the iconic Angel of the North, it is the perfect location from which to enjoy the best of bustling Newcastle and the magnificent Durham countryside.
Conveniently located just three minutes from the A1, The Ravensworth Arms Hotel is gateway to a whole host of nearby attractions in Newcastle, Gateshead and Durham – including Beamish Museum, historic Tynemouth, the stunning Baltic Centre, Gateshead Millennium Bridge and majestic Durham Cathedral, a World Heritage Site. The rugged beauty of the Northumberland coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the lovely seaside resort of South Shields are both within easy reach.
I really cannot fault this Hotel, the Pub itself was gorgeous with a friendly atmosphere and helpful stuff, and the food was really above expectations for a Chef and Brewer, venison Wellington anyone?
The rooms were spacious clean and comfortable with many of the rooms overlooking the Angel of The North. The prices? well a twin or double room will cost you around £40-50 per night and the 4 Poster you ask? £50-60 really a bargain!
If you fancy a little escape to the country with easy access to stunning hills but also a busy city on your doorstep, stay at the Ravensworth Arms.
