Welcome to Farlam Hall Country House Hotel which is the perfect place to escape from the real world and enjoy the elegance of an English country house combined with the best of modern life.
As a family we bought Farlam Hall in 1975. There were 7 bedrooms that were fit – just – to sleep in and only 2 bathrooms but every room did have the luxury of a hand basin. We also had just 2 part time staff. Today there are still 3 family members involved with the hotel and we are supported by a team of about 20 full and part time local staff. We now have 12 luxurious bedrooms – all with their own bathroom – and a restaurant that seats about 40.
Over the years we have also managed to buy the stables and coach house and also the original laundry for the big house which is now available as either a self catering cottage or a 2 bedroom suite.
We offer a relaxed and as one guest summed it up – “a Professionally Informal experience”. Some of our staff have been with us for over 30 years while others have clocked up into the 10 and 20 years and so their knowledge of Farlam and its surroundings is immense. This all contributes to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
From the time of your arrival, hopefully in time for homemade cakes served in one of the lounges or in the garden, through to dinner where you will be offered a choice of English country house style dishes using only top quality ingredients sourced as locally as possible and then to breakfast the next morning when you will be seated and have everything brought to you – we hope that you will feel looked after and have enjoyed your stay with us.
When it is time to venture out of the grounds you are perfectly located to explore The Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage site with its path and museums, the Northern Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the English/Scottish Borders and also the huge empty spaces of Western Northumberland.
We hope that you will be tempted to stay with us – whether it is just a night if traveling to or from Scotland or for a longer stay. Please do contact us if we are able to help with any information that is not covered in our website.
