An historic North East venue is ushering in autumn with a special offer for group bookings. 630-year-old Lumley Castle, overlooking the Emirates Cricket Ground at Chester-le-Street, is a four-star hotel set within a 14th century castle and is one of the region’s top leisure, wedding and conference venues.
Now, it is offering groups visiting some of the area’s world-famous attractions – such as The Angel of the North, Durham Cathedral and Castle and the intu Metrocentre shopping mall – dinner, bed and breakfast from just £69.50 per person.
And, for parties of more than 30, the coach driver and tour operator will be welcomed free of charge.
The package includes accommodation in an individually designed double room in the castle’s courtyard, which offers modern amenities, such as a flat screen TV and free Wi-Fi, alongside a wealth of historical features.
Alternatively, for a small supplement, guests can upgrade to a Castle Feature room with an authentic four poster bed.
An à la carte evening meal and breakfast the following morning will be served in the hotel’s renowned Black Knight restaurant.
“Lumley Castle Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore County Durham and the wider North East,” said sales manager, Lauren Colledge, “which is why it is always so popular with tour and travel operators.
“Not only is the hotel a fantastic, medieval castle, but everything from world class cricket and shopping, to heritage sites such as Durham Cathedral is right here on our doorstep.
“We very much hope this offer will encourage those who have stayed with us before to make a return visit and, those who haven’t, to come along and see for themselves just why Lumley Castle is so very special.”
