If you love fishing then you’ll be delighted with a stay at The George in Chollerford, Northumberland. As well as a stay in a beautiful part of the world on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, the hotel is situated right on the banks of the River North Tyne which is a fisherman’s paradise.
When you book a break at The George you will have access to no less than ¾ of a mile of fishing beat on the near side of the river. On the opposite bank, upstream from Chollerford Bridge, you’ll also have access to a further 1 ¾ miles of beat on which you can set your chair. Fishing is complimentary for guests staying at the hotel and you need only provide your fishing licence number in order to receive your free permit.
The fishing is excellent. The North Tyne is alive from April with salmon and sea trout and fish can often be seen leaping in the river from the hotel reception. The salmon and trout are around through summer and autumn, though a visit at any time of the year can yield trout, grayling, roach and chub and more. After a day in the outdoors pitting your wits against nature you can look forward to relaxing back at the hotel. The George features a full leisure club including a pool, sauna and Jacuzzi to sooth aching limbs and a wonderful bar and lounges to enjoy a relaxing drink - and talk about the one that got away - with views back over the glorious river.
Treat yourself to a fishing break at this characterful Coast & Country hotel in the heart of Northumberland and enjoy a bit of time to yourself in the fresh air and in the picture-postcard of the North Tyne. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
