THE NORTHUMBERLAND ARMS, FELTON
Situated approximately 1 mile from the A1, perfectly positioned for direct access North & South; lies the idyllic village of Felton. The Northumberland Arms was built in the 1820’s by Hugh Percy, 3rd Duke of Northumberland as a Coaching Inn where his coach horses, family and visitors could be refreshed before reaching Alnwick Castle. The building has been lovingly restored (and not without its major ‘Grand Designs’ pitfalls) and presents the ultimate in chic, eclectic styling, whilst remaining warm comfortable and welcoming. Its six luxury en suite guest rooms were awarded a 4* Gold rating in 2014 and a 5* rating in 2015.
Wholesome, locally sourced food is served daily in the recently completed River Room, as well as the restaurant and bar/lounge area; cooked to perfection by a brigade of AA Rosette and Michellin experienced chefs including the renowed chef Mal Farmer (Head Chef), Martyn Barry (Senior Sous) and Ashley Tulloch (Sous) . Our General Manager Gina Doyle heads up the Front of House team and Vanessa Foreman is responsible for co-ordination of block room bookings.
The Deluxe ensuite Rooms, of which there are 6, ultimately encapsulate a true feeling of Northumberland with an unafraid application of a muted, countrified colour palette of greens, mauves and purples; beautifully and opulently furnished to the highest standard imaginable. Rooms; individually named to reflect local landmarks encompass Travertine™ tiling, freestanding 'couture' Victoria and Albert™ bathing facilities in some Rooms and all with large walk in showers. Style, comfort and ultimate luxury are key and no expense has been spared to ensure the Rooms match the ambiance of the bar/lounge/restaurant area. The initial reaction to the rooms has quite simply been ‘WOW’! Complimentary robes, spring water in addition to ‘Bari’ infused teas are served in each room, in addition to sensor lighting, terrestrial TV, telephone and a complimentary breakfast is served in the River Room to residents from 8.30am until 10.30 am.
Our River Room (pictured below) is the perfect venue for larger groups, weddings or corporate bookings; do you have a forthcoming event for a group of 30 plus? Please ask us for more details.
