Northumberland has strong connections with many important men – from Capability Brown and George Stephenson to Alexander Armstrong and even Emperor Hadrian – but, on Sunday 19th June, the only man that matters is your dad.
If you are not sure what to get him for Father’s Day, give him the gift of Northumberland.
Whether he prefers time spent together in intimate boutique hotels or in self-catering luxury, the Northumberland countryside, complete with unparalleled beauty and breathtaking vistas, is the ideal place for you and your father to create heart-warming memories together, whatever his interests and passions may be.
For the history-loving dad
Home to tradition and adventure, Northumberland is awash with ancient landmarks to visit so if his idea of relaxation is to explore historical sites and hidden gems, take your dad on a leisurely adventure to Chesters Roman Fort, Vindolanda or the world-famous Hadrian’s Wall.
Why not combine local history with afternoon tea at nearby Walwick Hall and treat your father to indulgence, class and timeless tradition with a selection of delicious pastries, scones and perhaps some Champagne?
For the foodie dad
It is often stated that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so it stands to reason that one way to show your father you love him is by providing him with the very best food.
If he enjoys a tipple or two, The Bar has an extensive list of wines, spirits, beers and cocktails and, following its recent refurbishment offers comfy armchairs and a relaxing atmosphere, making it the perfect place for your father to while away an hour or two in the daytime or to finish the evening off with a nightcap.
For the dad who needs a break
For the ultimate gift this year, why not give him the gift of time dedicated to him with a break away from the norm? From soaking up the spectacular views, breathing in the fresh Northumberland air or exploring one of the local walks around our boutique hotel and estate, a break at Walwick Hall is a lavish gift that will be very well received.
With a whole host of different rooms for him to unwind in, your dear dad can sleep like a king in a sumptuous bed and wake up the next morning, revived and ready for a new day.
Classic bedrooms, such as The Stag – Walwick Hall’s very own noble symbol – will provide him with a very relaxed experience, right at the heart of the hotel, while The Hunter and The Bramble make for a very luxurious getaway destination.
As part of his sojourn with us, your dad will have full access to The Spa and leisure facilities. There, he can choose to unwind in and around the pool or in the jacuzzi, taking in sensational views of the Tyne Valley or working up an appetite in our state-of-the-art Fitness Suite.
For the dog dad
If your dad cannot bear to be away from his best friend, Chesters Stables offers an unrivalled opportunity for him to spend time with all of his loved ones, including those with four legs.
With a doggy welcome pack provided on arrival, the family pet can enjoy a little luxury too and, with Northumberland’s sweeping landscapes just outside the door, there is no shortage of walks for you all to fall in love with together.
For a luxury self-catering break, treat your dear father to a stay at Chesters Stables, an expansive and open plan living space that is ideal for all family members to make memories.
For the dad who wants it all
If you are still unsure what Father’s Day gift to give your dad, why not let him choose? Walwick Hall has a host of different vouchers available, from a three-course Sunday Lunch to a Dinner, Bed & Breakfast.
Surrounded by majestic scenery and full of hidden gems, a stay in Northumberland offers it all this Father’s Day and allows him to escape a world away from the norm.
