Close House hotel in Newcastle is an old 18th Century restored manor set within acres of beautiful countryside. The impressive and grand building has been beautifully restored and the conservation of the original features has been considered carefully throughout the renovation.

As we approached the main entrance of the hotel we enjoyed spectacular views of the grounds including the two large 18 hole golf courses, one of which is currently being carefully restored by renowned golfer Lee Westwood.

We stayed in one of the hotel’s twelve Courtyard rooms that are located in a converted stabled block that connects to the large country house. The stable block has a wonderful atmosphere and reflects the time it was built through carefully designed décor and furnishings. We were led through the courtyard to our room and were pleased with the number of original features that has been retained.

“Everything about our stay echoed penultimate hospitality and we feel as though the four star Close House hotel deserves a five star status. “

The room was spacious but modern while still retained the traditional feel expected in such an impressive conversion project. Our room contained a modern bathroom complete with drench head shower and the bedroom itself included a large bed and fantastic views over the courtyard.

The hotel’s facilities were vast and varying, with the most notable of all being the grounds themselves. The picturesque and stunning views were breath taking and well worth exploring.

There are a number of golfing packages available for those who wish to enjoy the renowned golf courses. The ‘Stay and Play’ package offers golfers the chance to enjoy the impressive views and wonderful hotel while taking advantage of the course.

The hotel also provided many forms of entertainment including big name performances against the stunning backdrop, most notably Katherine Jenkins and Il Divo.

The staff were very friendly and passionate about the wonderful hotel they were representing. Their obvious passion had a positive effect on us, too, and helped us to enjoy our stay at the beautiful Close House Hotel.

Everything about our stay echoed penultimate hospitality and we feel as though the four star Close House hotel deserves a five star status.
