Langley Castle Hotel is a genuine 14th-century castle set in a 12-acre woodland estate, nestling in the Northumbrian valley of the River South Tyne. It’s the perfect getaway to be pampered in
Built in 1350 during the reign of Edward III and today functioning as a luxury four-star hotel, the castle has retained much of its architectural integrity. The exclusive nature of Langley makes it the perfect destination to be pampered in unique surroundings.
All castle bed chambers are unique and furnished to a high standard, some of which boast window seats set into 7ft-thick walls, sauna, spa bath, and many of the rooms also have four-poster beds. CastleView and CastleView Lodge, converted Grade I-listed buildings within the grounds, offer additional guest rooms with stunning views up to the main castle.
The magnificent drawing room, with blazing log fire, traceries and stained glass, compliment the intimate nature of the Josephine Restaurant. Awarded two AA rosettes, the food served in the restaurant makes the most of fresh, local produce, with fish and game a speciality.
When it comes to awards, Langley certainly has its fair share. The castle was Gold winner of the ‘One North East tourism awards’ for ‘Best Small Hotel’ 2002, 2004 and 2006, gaining silver in the 2007 national finals.
