Details

Swept up in the wilds of the North Pennine moors, holding court over the honey stone village of Blanchland, The Lord Crewe Arms is the perfect country hideaway.

A medieval vaulted chamber etched by stout stone walls, afire with candle-style-ambience and warmed by the welcomed chatter of moorland travellers; there is truly no other pub quite like The Crypt. Add to the mix a hearty stock of Northumbrian ales, including their very own ‘Lord Crewe Brew’ on tap  and throw in a rather thoughtful selection of cracking wine, topped with a good few measures of highland whisky, then spice it up with a Geordie cocktail or two...and there you have it - the finest free house for miles around.

When the summer-tide arrives, they spill out from The Crypt into their pretty pub garden. Spoiled with the back drop of the North Pennine moors, it's primed for quaffing ales in the sunshine, accompanied by a delicious menu of meats from chefs trusty ‘Big Green Egg’ barbie.

Boasting a kind of lawlessness akin to the moors that envelop them, expect patchwork feasts vibrant with colour, beautiful and seasonal ingredients plucked from countryside spoils, celebratory centre pieces begging to be passed around, delicious home grown crops bestowed on them from the bottom of their garden and, of course, the most heavenly of meats, yours to share, roasting in the gentle glow of their medieval fireplace.

Coloured by the Northumbrian landscape and with a Twelfth Century abbots guest house, miners cottages and the village's ‘Angel of Temperance’ as your pillows of choice, you can rest assured that wherever and whatever your pick, the epitome of a countryside escape awaits. Homely enough for slippers and socks, boasting beds that beg you to jump into them, and kissed with the softest of yarns. Their rooms are all about ‘those’ creature comforts with an added dash of moorland luxury thrown in for good measure. Do take a look at the rooms tab above this text for more information. 

Their meeting space stands just across the country lane in a handsome building that once held the keys to the tranquil village of Blanchland. These rooms are primed for relaxation with "fresh air for fresh thinking".

    Cosy
  • image description
    Sleeps 2
  • From £184 per room per night

Just as the name suggests their ‘cosies’ are as comforting as the warmth of their firesides. Dotted between the main house, the miners cottages and with a couple sitting snug a hop-skip-and-a-jump across the road into the eaves of The Angel, all of these homey spots are sweetened with Roberts radios, sleepy linen and a YUM slab of local fudge. Sunday night stays start from £130.

    Canny

    Sleeps 2
  • From £194 per room per night

Up north there is no nicer compliment than being called ‘canny’ and these rooms deserve nothing less. One in the cottages, six sit across the way in The Angel and number one, named after their rebellious former resident Tom Forster, is just at the top of the stairs in the main house. Take your pick from views of the pretty-as- a-picture village square or sweeping stone rooftops with woodlands running beyond. Sunday night stays start from £130.

    Champion

    Sleeps 2
  • From £204 per room per night

If you grab a handy Geordie dictionary, under champion you will find listed - First Class. Indeed, their knock-at- the-door four are pretty gorgeous bedrooms. So, if you have a bit of a thing for bubbles then Eggleston and Radcliffe and their roll top baths are your bag, or if firesides do just the trick, why not give Jeffries Rake and the wonderful Rookhope a whirl. Sunday night stays from £130.

Their ‘top of the range’ two are the last in the row of miners cottages. With their very own front doors, porches perfect for boots and log burners at the ready. Indulge in roll top baths, country chic lounging and in the case of Blackdene, a rather pretty spiralling staircase too.
