Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 10.27.21A 600-year-old castle, close to a number of leading North East tourist attractions, is offering visitors some medieval magic this summer.

Lumley Castle, overlooking the Emirates Cricket Ground at Chester-le-Street, is a four star hotel set within a 14th century castle and is one of the region’s top leisure, wedding and conference venues.

Now, it is offering visitors to attractions such as The Angel of the North, Durham Cathedral and Castle and the intu Metrocentre shopping mall – a two night break with dinner, bed and breakfast from just £325 per couple.

The package includes accommodation in an individually designed double room in the castle’s courtyard, which offers modern amenities, such as a flat screen TV and free Wi-Fi, alongside a wealth of historical features.

Alternatively, for a small supplement, guests can upgrade to a Castle Feature room with an authentic four poster bed.

An à la carte evening meal on both nights and breakfast each morning will be served in the hotel’s renowned Black Knight restaurant and a reduced rate for those wishing to stay an additional night is available upon request.

The Lumley Castle Weekend Break applies to any two-night stay between Thursday and Sunday and is based on two people sharing a Courtyard Double or Twin bedroom.

Upgrades are available subject to availability and a small supplement and terms and conditions apply.
