Langley Castle Hotel and Restaurant

Langley Castle Hotel and Restaurant

Stunning, four-star Langley Castle Hotel and Restaurant, in Langley-on-Tyne, strives to excel at everything it does within its seven-foot thick, 14th century walls, whilst focused on pride, passion and a penchant for doing things in Northumberland’s own inimitable way.

 

The castle, built in 1350, oozes sense of place no matter which century you wish to focus upon, being far more than just a façade and having the true depth and identity that emanates from authenticity, rather than fake features and an unconvincing historic veneer. 

 

Retreat west and discover the spirit of Ardnamurchan

Retreat west and discover the spirit of Ardnamurchan

A remote peninsula of wild and unforgettable beauty, jutting out of the west highlands into the ocean, the British mainland's most westerly point.

 

Whether you're looking for a romantic break, a family holiday, or an unforgettable adventure, we have the ideal spot for you. Stay in a beautiful country home, a cosy hillside cabin, a remote bothy on the shore, or even the original lighthouse keeper's cottage, nestled below the mighty Ardnamurchan Lighthouse. All our cottages enjoy spectacular sea views and are set to the majestic backdrop of western Ardnamurchan, where we started our family-run business, Steading Holidays, over forty years ago.

Days of Empire

Days of Empire

Food and travel writer George Shaw arrives at the Royal Harbour Hotel amid an election expenses scandal and votes the Empire Room a clear winner by a landslide.

It was with some reluctance that my first wife and I were able drag our friends, Steve and M’Julie, down to Ramsgate for the weekend.  Thanet’s recent revival in fortunes had totally passed them by and they had a vague expectation for the town to be Kent’s answer to Grimsby.  Not they had ever visited the Lincolnshire seaport either.
