Clennell Hall is situated in the Coquet Valley on the very edge of the Northumberland National Park, nestling in the valley of the river Alwin. It is the ideal base for exploring the Northumberland countryside and an ideal venue for weddings and music events.
Clennell Hall dates from the 13th Century and retains many of its original architectural features. With its ornate ceilings, panelled walls, mullioned windows and rich furnishings, along with our extensive gardens we strive to deliver a memorable country house hotel experience to all of our guests.
