UK: St Mary’s Inn, Hotel Review

So this week I was fortunate to spend two nights with the spectacular St Mary’s Inn, Morpeth located in the heart of Northumberland, UK. It’s just been Easter and we wanted to get out into the countryside to explore! St Mary’s Inn is perfectly situated for just that, positioned in a corner of Northumberland is the B&B which has recently has been transformed from the former administration building of St Mary’s hospital to quaint, contemporary first class accommodation.

The Suite:

Rooms at St Mary’s Inn are as close as you can feel to being at home. Rooms perfectly reflect the pubs ambiance and the ‘country bumpkin’ theme flows throughout incorporating striking antique cabinets with contemporary bathroom suites.

Highlights continued far beyond our spacious suite, our room overlooked the forest which was home to deer! We found ourselves fixated on the views and photographing scenery from our bedroom window, if you’re enticed by nature be sure to book a front facing room.

Should you have any requests during your stay at St Mary’s Inn, the team of staff will go the extra mile to cater to your needs. It really is this small team of dedicated professionals that truly make this property stand out above others!

The Food:

Step into a traditional country pub and experience a high quality dining experience with St Mary’s Inn. What makes this place super is the brief menu, they don’t offer a large selection of meals but what they do offer, they do extremely well!

Whilst dining with St Mary’s Inn we sampled the Haddock Fishcakes served with Bone Marrow Chips & Butter Peas, my personal favourite pick! Along with the Rib eye Steak. The pubs dishes are spectacular and would equal any high end restaurant of the South.

The B&B offers a breakfast service from 8am serving a wide selection of continental options together with hot food orders. Tuck into an organic Full English breakfast or sample a Poached Egg served with Avocado on Sourdough, an exquisite combination in my humble opinion!

The Overall Experience: 

St Mary’s Inn personifies quirk, and given that it is owned beside the renowned Jesmond Dene House, Newcastle, this comes as no surprise. The former hospital reception has been transformed into snugs and hides to accommodate a multitude of tastes. The walls are home to heaps of comical contemporary images designed by David Haldane. David’s pieces kept us amused for the duration of our stay.

This Pub with Rooms is suitable for Families & Couples and even provides a dog friendly room for those who require accommodation for their furry friend. Perfectly situated for those who enjoy walking & exploring whilst only being a 30 minute drive from Newcastle City Centre.

St Mary’s Inn comes with the highest recommendation and I sincerely hope you enjoy your stay just as much as I did.

Rates: £110-120 per night.

  4. This place looks so lovely! I’ve just realised how much I need a holiday, but my heart says Cornwall. I’ll definitely put this in my list of places to visit! X

  5. I discovered Northumberland a few years ago and feel in love with the heritage and countryside. Its on my list for a repeat visit, always nicer to stay somewhere other than one of the large chain hotels, much more personable. Food looks amazing and I do love a room with a view.
