Love is in the air at Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club as wedding bookings surge

As Royal wedding fever sweeps across the country, Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club’s reputation as the North East’s perfect wedding destination continues to grow.

The luxury four-star hotel, located in the heart of Northumberland, has delivered its third consecutive year of growth for weddings, after reporting a 20% year-on-year increase in bookings to date for the 2018/19 financial year.

Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club’s wedding bookings have risen by more than a third over the past three years as the hotel cements its position as one of the UK’s most prestigious country house wedding destinations.

The 450-acre private estate is set in idyllic countryside with a championship 18-hole golf course and luxurious spa facilities. The manicured estate is home to 50 bedrooms and Northumberland’s largest hotel wedding suite with exclusive banqueting facilities complete with a separate entrance, providing a private atmosphere for weddings. The famous Linden Tree Pub also provides the opportunity for wedding parties to start the festivities early with an intimate dinner the night before the big day.

Situated just off the A1 and half an hour north of Newcastle, the secluded location feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. At the end of a tree-lined avenue lies an elegant mansion house, radiating charm and sophistication and providing the ideal backdrop for photographs.

Built in 1812, the original manor house has since been transformed into a stylish hotel. This magical venue, replete with ornate ceilings, roaring log fires and marble cherubs, boasts state-of-the-art spa facilities, a fitness centre, a cocktail bar, Dobson’s AA Rosette-award winning restaurant and a cozy gastro pub.

Denis Frucot, General Manager at Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club, said: “At Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club we have experienced a significant increase in wedding bookings in the last few years, underpinned by our continual investment in the hotel’s facilities and our hard working and flexible team who go the extra mile to ensure a magical day for our brides and grooms. Our award-winning restaurant, luxurious hotel and knowledgeable staff provide the ideal surroundings for the perfect wedding.”

Winter packages, midweek offers, small intimate weddings and the use of outdoor woodland areas are all available at Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club.
