Clennell Hall

Building In Alwinton, Northumberland

A 15th century country house, situated near the village of Alwinton in an area of natural outstanding beauty.

Earlier on in the year we wanted to do some exploration of the Coquet Valley and so incorporated this with a little stay over at Clennell Hall.

The hall is actually a 15th century country house, situated near the village of Alwinton in an area of natural outstanding beauty.

Of course we had a bit of a mooch around.

We were then contacted by Jessica Wilson who is the new barmaid at the hall and she provided us with some further information.

Nestled in the Coquet valley situated at the foot of the Cheviot hills, famed for its spectacular landscapes and breath taking night skies, it is located is an internationally recognised dark skies area.

Clennell Hall is made up of 10 guests rooms, 2 bunk rooms consisting of a 7 and 5 beds. Parts of Clennell Hall dates back to the 13th century, including our cosy and inviting Rievers Room, which is the ground floor of the original Pele tower.

Clennell Hall have spectacular grounds surrounded by a walled garden, lovingly tended to and have a unique beauty throughout the changing seasons. We have a large function room situated on our first floor, which can be dressed in wide variety of styles to suit all occasions.

Upon entering Clennell Hall you are greeted into a large reception area with ornate bay windows, that illuminate the entrance with natural light. A Jacobean staircase leads you up to our first floor giving a feeling of grandeur.

The newest addition to Clennell Hall building is the bar area, added in the 18th century it is cladded in dark wood panelling, the panelling came from the famous Haggerston Castle. It is truly a unique place that has to be seen to understand just how beautiful it is.

We had a fab stay with jaunts to see Linhope Spout, Lady's Well, Harbottle Castle, Biddlestone Chapel and lots of other little delights.

If you fancy a stay over then head over to the Clennell Hall website website and say the Fabulous North sent you. You might get a free packet of crisps!

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
