One of our grandest hotels in the North East has got to be Lumley Castle. Housed within a 14th-century castle, this hotel is as historic as it comes. The interior is as luxurious as you might expect, and its location too is unrivalled, with both Durham and Newcastle within easy reach of the hotel.
There are 73 guest bedrooms at Lumley Castle, each of which comes with its own unique touches and original features.

New Southlands Hotel is well located for all of Scarborough’s top attractions but quiet enough for relaxing evenings away from all the action. There are 55 bedrooms to choose from here, and pets are welcomed throughout the hotel.
Whitby is ideal for summer holidays and winter breaks alike. Book a trip to Whitby, and you’ll be able to explore one of the top destinations in North Yorkshire. We recommend staying at the Royal Whitby while you’re in the area – it’s one of the jewels in the Coast & Country Hotel Collection crown.
The Royal Whitby has an incredible cliff top location, meaning its views really are out of this world. Every side of the hotel boasts jaw-dropping views, whether you’re looking out over the nearby beaches, harbour, abbey ruins, or old town.
Whitby itself offers plenty to see and do, and the Royal Whitby is within walking distance of many of its top visitor attractions.
Enjoy a day shopping in Whitby’s boutique stores and take in the atmosphere as you wander the cobbled streets. Head to the sandy shores of Whitby’s Blue Flag beach for sunbathing, swimming, and sandcastle construction, or plan a trip to the famous Captain Cook Memorial Museum for a cultural day out in Whitby.
The North York Moors are also nearby, offering endless walking trails and quiet paths for cycling, running, and hiking.
