Afternoon tea

Had a fabulous afternoon tea, will be back when im next in the UK ????
Totally delicious first afternoon tea my sons have had too.
Beautiful surroundings. Had a lovely afternoon with my family.

A Romantic stay

The photos don't do the place justice. Fair to say some of the reviews I've read on here are from the nitpicking nimbies that all service industries collect on a daily basis.
Lumley castle is an exquisite experience. We only stayed one night in The George Lumley room but its an an experience never to be forgotten.
The Black Knight restaurant is well worth it. Excellent chouce if food and drink with very efficient staff. Nothing is too much trouble.
There were two weddings there during our stay and we managed to wish both brides well.
There are some beautiful rooms here for receptions and functions. The castle itself absorbs the majority of sounds emanating from the festivities
The George Lumley is the annexe of buildings beyond the courtyard. Beautifully appointed the general impression is of quality and luxury. The four poster bed is without a doubt the comfiest we've ever slept in. My better half enjoyed the fabric conditioner used in the bed linen immensely.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and recommend you add Lumley castle to your bucket list.
Thank you to all staff concerned, we will be back in 2020.

Date Night

We booked a date night at Lumley Castle and wow what a fantastic evening we had. Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. Super atmospheric location with sumptuous rooms to suite all budgets. Evening meal was absolutely gorgeous as was breakfast. Rooms were immaculate and indulgent. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We can't wait to go again to one of their many event evenings.
