Accommodation Description:

Set in four acres of fabulous wooded gardens stands the stunning Georgian mansion of Hedgefield House. Set in Northumberland countryside, it is a great base for exploring Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Welcome to Hedgefield House Hotel, a stunning Georgian mansion set in four acres of beautiful award winning gardens on the edge of the Northumbrian countryside. The house has a colourful history, prior to being converted into a bed and breakfast. Dating back to 1804, we have documented evidence that Hedgefield House was the first home in Britain to have a telephone installed.

In 1877, the inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, made the first experimental phone call from the drawing room to the local coal mine. We are ideally situated only 10 minutes from the city centre and Gateshead Metro shopping complex and 10 minutes walk to historic Ryton village, with its numerous cafes and restaurants. We are also only a short distance from the River Tyne and the Hadrian?s Wall walk.

Its location makes it perfect for hikers, bikers and city visitors. All rooms are well equipped and individually decorated, maintaining many original features. A continental breakfast is also included.

We have great leisure facilities for our guests to use free of charge including a sauna, gym and relaxation area. Ample, free parking is available for guests.
