A genuine 14thC castle set in a 12-acre woodland estate with brush-mown lawns. All 27 guest rooms have private facilities, some of which boast window seats set into 7ft-thick walls, sauna, spa bath, and 4-poster beds.

Castleview and Castle View Lodge - converted Grade I Listed buildings within the grounds, offer additional guest rooms. All rooms have draped canopies over the bed, colour satellite TV and stunning views up to the main castle 80m away.

The magnificent drawing room, with blazing log fire, traceries and stained glass, together with the oak-panelled cocktail bar, compliment the intimate nature of the Josephine Restaurant.

The food served in the restaurant is of the highest order, making the most of fresh, local produce, with fish and game a speciality.

With recent changes in the law, which have allowed marriages to take place in certain registered premises, Langley has quickly established itself as one of the country's foremost venues for hosting civil weddings.

Langley is perfect for discovering the delights of Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Scottish Borders and the Metro Centre. The exclusive nature of the castle makes Langley the perfect destination to be pampered in unique surroundings.

Great Stay!

tokyoexpat2016, Tokyo, Japan
Our family of four stayed in the Radcliffe Room for one night in August, as part of a trip to see Hadrian's Wall. The Castle is beautiful and atmospheric, and the Radcliffe Room was very impressive and comfortable overall, with a four-poster bed nd a massive bathroom (and sauna). Our only issue was the rollaway bed provided for our daughter, which was a bit old and lumpy and not conducive to a good sleep. We were not up for a formal dinner so had a relaxed meal in the lovely Drawing Room instead. The food, which ranged from sandwiches to steak, was excellent. We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast. It was a great stay, and we would strongly recommend Langley Castle to others.

So near yet so far.

James A,
Arrived early as was a lovely day and fancied a walk through the grounds as were not staying in the castle just booked in for dinner. Whilst pottering around we were amazed by the peacocks and stunning views. Bumped into one of the chefs, James, plucking grouse on a bench. Spoke to him for a while whilst he plucked away. Amazing and a genuinely nice young man whose passion for food and especially game came across in droves. We knew we had made a good choice in coming here. Dated decor but guess that's what you should expect from a castle in the middle of Northumberland. Service in lounge area was a bit slow but the waiter was charming and knowledgeable. Snacks of olives and smoked almonds whilst we looked at the menu with a drink were great. Menu was well balanced and seemed to be written by a chef who knows his craft well as I already knew! Made our choices and were taken down to the restaurant where we were served a complimentary course of Lindisfarne oyster with cucumber and a gin and tonic granita. Absolutely amazing!!! Perfect balance and was told that the gin and tonic were also local products. I went for the beef carpaccio with crispy ox tongue, picked carrots and a tarragon dressing. Great combination of flavours that complimented a fine bit of well aged beef. I was told by a very charming young man that the beef was from the local butcher in Haydon Bridge. My partner had the lobster risotto with sea vegetables and a deep rich bisque perfectly foamed atop the risotto. Big chunks of tender sweet lobster matched perfectly in a risotto containing spring onions, peas and tarragon with a delicate punch of parmesan. In case you hadn't guessed I had a taste. Onto the star of the show for myself that Allenheads Grouse. Couldn't really order anything else having spoke to James. Served with braised spelt, Jerusalem artichokes and rainbow chard. Perfectly cooked breasts and rich deep braised legs sticky and rich, delicious. The spelt was cooked in Allendale brewery's black grouse ale which I found amusing yet also absolutely amazing. My partner had the whole Dover sole with parsley and caper butter, accompanied by heritage potatoes and a selection of vegetable, cooked again perfectly and carved table side for a little bit of drama with the sauce poured over by the maitre d. Onto dessert I went for the almond pannacotta served with peach sorbet, poached peach, blowtorched and an almond tuille. Perfect balance and just tasted great. My partner went for the chocolate fondont with peanut butter ice cream, peanut brittle and a milk puree. Perfectly runny fondont complimented by the peanut and vanilla milk puree. Simple and perfect. We then had a cheese course to share from the trolley. . A great selection of 8 local and French cheeses served with all the usual suspects, fresh honeycomb from a farm close to the castle, celery, delicious grape chutney and mulled grapes. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Expectly cooked food with a genuine interest in the use of local ingredients and suppliers. James the sous chef is surely one to look out for in the future. Had the look of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall about him so we know he has the look for TV! Jokes aside if he cooks like this for a certain inspector I'm sure the accolades will follow.

Beautiful hotel

Just driving up to the hotel is amazing. The castle is absolutely gorgeous and I felt that excitement as we pulled in. We stayed in one of the castle view rooms, which was lovely, but next time we plan to stay in the actual castle. The whole experience here is amazing, breakfast is unreal... plan to eat a LOT!! The only downside for us was the other pretentious guests. We had spent the day exploring the area and walking a lot, so when it came to dinner time we fancied a burger as opposed to the (more expensive) restaurant menu. We didn't realise that the 'bar' menu was to be served in the same restaurant and when we sat down to eat one of the other residents made a comment about the fact that we clearly couldn't afford the more expensive menu & were not here for the 'dining experience'. This made me really uncomfortable & I can't say I enjoyed the meal. The staff were attentive & professional, & i cannot complain about that in the slightest, just the other people in the restaurant! On on our first day we had the cream tea which came with our stay, this was absolutely perfect, the scones were warm & the setting perfect. Initially there were no seats for us so we sat in the bar to wait, the waiter was fantastic, he made us feel welcome & when I mentioned to him our TV wasn't working he immediately went downstairs to report it & it was sorted within 5 minutes. Absolutely gorgeous place, fantastic food & surroundings. We will definitely come back.

A real castle but oh dear ......

We were delighted when we arrived at the property. A lovely building in nice grounds and the drawing room, through which we walked to our room, looked lovely. The first impression of the room was good but it was all seriously in need of refurbishment . The carpet was stained, mould in the bathroom and a torn cover on the bed. The one blanket on the bed looked like a dog blanket ! Not quite what we were expecting. The staff were very laissez faire. We were supposed to have wine and charcuterie in our room on arrival. Rang for it and it arrived with no cutlery to spread the butter provided. Dinner too was a bit of a disappointment. You were instructed to make your way to the drawing room where you were presented with the drinks menu and the dinner menu. We had barely begun our drinks when we were uprooted to go down to the dining room. Staff were sloppy, had to ask twice for water, dropped cutlery etc. The meal was okay but nothing special and the cost of a glass of wine .... over 9 pounds for a very average wine. Breakfast was again very average. We had stayed in many places in the previous few weeks for a third of the price that had much better. All in all a disappointing experience.

We were in England for a three week holiday, staying at Langley Castle Hotel was a little splurge for us and well worth every penny. From the moment we turned up the driveway it was beautiful. My understanding is that the castle is mostly a reconstruction but hats off to Mr Cadwallader he did an extraordinary job. The ambience throughout was impressive especially the lovely drawing room. We stayed in the castle itself in the Cadwallader room. My husband and i have stayed in some nice hotels but I think our room here was possibly the nicest we have ever stayed in. With one caveat. The bathroom had a decidedly funky smell. If I had to guess I would say the culprit is probably water which has leaked under the bathtub enclosure ( motion activated night lights around the tub- nice touch) and has caused um an issue. We availed ourselves of the three course prix fixe in the dining room and it was delicious, the service was impeccable. Breakfast the next morning was large, varied and delicious, there was simply nothing wanting. We also had an opportunity to take a long lovely walk in the countryside, for once the weather was co-operating. It was delightful. Sadly we left early the next morning to get back to Hexham to catch a train and did not get an opportunity to take the castle tour which I regret, but c'est la vie . I would highly recommend this hotel but do spend the extra and get a castle room, not to be confused with a castle-view.
