A Country Retreat

My move to Newcastle timed perfectly with my first anniversary of being with Simon and to celebrate I booked a surprise overnight stay at Jesmond Dene House for us both.
Jesmond Dene House has recently been ranked number one hotel in Newcastle by Trip Advisor, as well as getting into the top 25 Travellers Choice 2013, and it’s recognition that is certainly deserved.
It is an idyllic getaway, so peaceful that it’s hard to believe you are just a few minutes away from the centre of Newcastle.

Our visit started with Afternoon Tea in the Cocktail Lounge.  At only £18.50 per person, the well presented delicious food is worth every penny.   The tea includes four finger sandwiches, fruit, plain and cheese scones and then my favourite part of any afternoon tea, the cakes - Chocolate Orange Truffle, Red Velvet Cake, Lemon Meringue Pie and Strawberry Cheesecake.  Washed down with a bottomless pot of tea which we enjoyed at our leisure whilst sat in the most beautiful surroundings.

When we couldn't eat any more we headed upstairs to our room.  We were very lucky as the hotel had upgraded us to the Noble Suite - a large open plan room with a King size bed, comfy seating area, private roof terrace and a huge bathroom with under floor heating, walk-in shower and bath.


Anyone wanting the perfect weekend break please head to:
 We booked our stay as part of the “Weekender Bed and Breakfast” offer but the hotel does a variety of deals.
