Many people stay at the George Hotel with the sole intention of enjoying local walks, visiting historic Hadrian’s Wall and relaxing in the swimming pool. Permits are available at the hotel for fishing along the river, and the Northumberland National Park is just five minutes away. At the George, you are free to enjoy the slow pace and the surrounding natural beauty, though it’s just as easy to visit some of the best Northumberland attractions.

Hadrians WallHadrian’s Wall
Hadrian’s Wall covers a distance of 150 miles, running from Arbeia in South Shields to Ravenglass in Cumbria. A Roman defensive wall, it’s now mostly in ruins. At some points, you’ll see little more than a few remaining stones and rocks whilst at others there are tower remnants. Once, more than 30 forts could be found near the wall, with16 being on the wall’s line. As you make your way along Hadrian’s Wall, you’ll see dozens of monuments and museums giving a deeper insight into the defensive role that this exceptional monument played.

Northumberland National Park

Peaceful and tranquil, the Northumberland National Park includes wild forests, rugged trails and wide open fields. Rivers, streams and lakes are dotted throughout the landscape and various companies offer the chance to enjoy outdoor activities including fishing, fell walking, archery, cycling and horse riding. Picturesque villages including Elston and Greenhaugh are perfect places to stop for traditional British food during your visit.

Beamish MuseumBeamish Museum
World-famous, and a great attraction for the whole family, Beamish is an open-air museum set in 300 beautiful acres of the County Durham countryside. Costumed characters bring the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian history of the North East to life as they stoke fires, bake bread, plough the fields and weave blankets. You can ride around the site by old bus or tram, or explore on foot. Learn about life in the mines, the development of printing techniques and what lifestyles people had in comparison to the amount of work they did. The grounds of Beamish include original buildings such as Home Farm and Pockerly Old Hall, alongside recreations filled with original objects and artifacts.

Kielder Water and Forest ParkKielder Water and Forest Park
The perfect attraction for lovers of nature and adventure, Kielder Forest Park covers 250 square miles within which you’ll find Northern Europe’s biggest man-made lake. During the day, visitors can explore Kielder Castle or try their hand at windsurfing. At night, look up and see the stars as they’re meant to be enjoyed, undamaged by artificial light pollution. Various venues within the forest include the Salmon Centre, the Observatory and the Bird of Prey Centre. Horse-riding, fishing and cycling are popular activities, and you’ll find an abundance of places to eat and drink

What some of our guests have to say…

Customer Rating:

The George Hotel is a wonderful place to stay, with beautiful surroundings. Our room had a view of the river and was very clean. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. My wife and I have booked up for the following weekend, so we are looking forward to another relaxing stay.

We've never been to Northumberland before and the welcome we got at The George make the long journey more than worth it. The staff were charming, our room was attractive and comfy with a stunning view over the river and countryside. Just the job for a pair of tired Londoners! Excellent menu and wine list too.
