Slaley Hall is an impressive Edwardian mansion located in beautiful Northumberland. Nestled in 1000 acres of stunning countryside, the hotel is like the stuff of period novels. With its own spa and golf course, plus fishing, archery and clay pigeon available on-site, it’s the most idyllic of rural escapes and is within easy reach of Newcastle, too.
Earlier this month, Slaley Hall hosted a Christmas showcase event which was a chance to re-discover the hotel and find out more about its festive celebrations. And there are certainly lots of ideas vying for a coveted spot in your diary this December.
Festive afternoon tea
There’s no denying that afternoon tea is the perfect indulgence all year round, but even more so during the yuletide season when you’re in need of a little break from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. Tea and cake is always a winner, in our books!
Slaley Hall’s festive afternoon tea, priced at £25, plates up all kinds of deliciousness, including mulled wine, traditional scones with cream and jam, an assortment of sweet treats and a selection of festive sandwiches. The exquisite backdrop of the venue’s Edwardian drawing room is what makes this afternoon tea extra special though.
‘Tis the season to party…and you can certainly celebrate in style at Slaley.
On selected dates throughout December, the venue will be hosting party nights in its Kielder Suite and also the Claret Jug, combining a lavish meal with entertainment, priced from just £25.95 per person.
The good news is that partygoers can make a night of it and enjoy special rates on the accommodation too, starting from just £85 per room.
Spa and party night sleepover
Want to make your trip to Slaley a truly memorable occasion? The spa and party night sleepover, priced from £139, has got it covered.
By day, you can enjoy the hotel’s health club, which includes a sauna, indoor heated pool and steam room. You’ve even got your pick of two 25 minute treatments (the back, neck and shoulder massage sounds sublime) or a longer 50 minute treatment.
Then, after a blissfully chilled day – it’s time to get glammed up for Slaley’s Christmas party night, before hitting the pillow and waking up to a full English breakfast the following morning. What more could you wish for from your 24-hour spell at the Northumberland venue?
With lots of festive happenings at Slaley Hall this Christmas, there’s plenty to see, taste and do. Festivities aside though, we recommend you don your finest outdoors clothing and explore the venue’s beautiful grounds, brimming in picture-perfect winter feels!
