We chose Lumley Castle as a special place to celebrate our first wedding anniversary on December 12th (we got married 12.12.12 at 12.12pm in Warwickshire). It was also very well located as we were en route from the Midlands for a work's Christmas Party in Newcastle the following evening. For us the Castle delivered at all levels - atmosphere, history and a delicious meal in the Black Knight restaurant in the evening.
Our room in the castle itself was clean, warm and comfortable and easy to find, once we'd familiarised ourselves with this fabulous rambling building.
I'd been to the castle several years ago for a work meeting, but never stayed overnight. So it was a great opportunity to enjoy the full experience this time.
Even though there were two weddings taking place that day (a Thursday), they did not impact on us and we were not disturbed by any noise from the celebrations (the white 'living' statues on the landing added to the atmosphere!!) as the castle is a pretty big place.
The following day we spent a few hours in Durham, taking in the city centre and the splendid Cathedral.
Would definitely recommend it as a treat.
