Top tips for a family day out...

Beamish Living Museum

A brilliant open-air living museum of everyday life in urban and rural North East England.

Bushcraft Fun

Develop your forest skills, build a den and lose yourself in nature for a bit with our local guide Neil from Cycling 4 Adventure – a great outdoor activity for all the family.

Vindolanda & Roman Army Museum

A march here is highly recommended! Immerse in the history of the Roman Empire.

Derwent Waterside Park

A stones throw from Lord Crewe and great for cycling, walking, watersports and nature watching.

Hadrian's Wall

There are 73 miles of scattered parts of the wall, including remnants of forts, towers, turrets and town - so much to discover and enjoy!


We have the best view of the night life right in our own back garden and during the darker winter months our local star man can offer a family tour of the night sky with our garden telescope.

'We found the Lord Crewe Arms listed as a number one destination in Northumberland by the Telegraph. It was not wrong. We had a family suite. The beds were heavenly and the room’s spotlessly clean with lovely toiletries and fluffy white towels. I highly recommend this hotel. A big thank you to all the staff who made it special..'
