THINGS TO DO

Situated in the Tyne valley and surrounded by rolling Northumberland hills, Corbridge was once a bustling town and supply base for Roman citizens to collect food and supplies. Over the course of 350 years it developed from a strategic military fort into a bustling, cosmopolitan town, where civilians, tradespeople and craftsmen rubbed shoulders with soldiers and officers on their way to Hadrian’s Wall. You can discover the Corbridge Hoard, housed at the museum, one of the most significant finds in Roman history, the museum is also home to the Corbridge Collection, the largest of the Hadrian’s Wall’s collections.

Corbridge boasts some of the best shopping in the region. You can find fashion, art and crafts, gifts and more. There are several independent clothes and shoe shops as well as beauticians and hairdressers. It is an area renowned for the arts; there are several galleries, craft, fabric and interior design shops, art suppliers and antique and vintage emporiums.

The local shops / shopowners frequent our hotel for lunch and host workshops, along with that we also host afternoon tea for residents of Charlotte Straker Care Home and our proud of how much we work together with the community.

Guests have easy access to get to and from the town of Hexham via train / bus
