Our Inspector's view

Set in the peaceful village of Newton, in the Tyne Valley, The Duke of Wellington Inn is reputedly one of Northumberland's oldest pubs. Located close to Corbridge, in Hadrian's Wall country, not far from Newcastle and just minutes from the A69, the inn offers high standards of accommodation, food and hospitality. Generous sized bedrooms have quality beds, bedding and branded toiletries, with every small detail taken care of. The busy bar and restaurant make great use of the best local produce. Terraces outside allow guests to make the best of the fine weather.

About the area

Discover Northumberland

If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.

Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
