Just 15 minutes’ drive from the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne, set in 360 acres of beautiful Northumberland countryside in the Tyne Valley, Close House is an elegant and stylish privately owned hotel and golf resort.
The hotel opened for business in March 2005 after extensive refurbishment. In 2007 12 new bedrooms were added bringing the total to 19, and with the redevelopment of the 18th Century coach house and stable block, an additional 12 luxury bedrooms were opened in August 2011. Close House Hotel is a luxurious and tranquil retreat, and offers fine dining, conferences, banquets and is a sought after wedding venue.
Developments have also focussed on golf at Close House. The Filly Course was originally built as a nine hole course and was extended to 18 holes in the early eighties. The Parkland layout was re-designed and re-opened in 2007 following substantial investment. This investment has continued with the opening of the Golf Academy and Driving Range in August 2010, and the construction of the Colt Course which opened in May 2011, along with No 19, the new Golf Clubhouse and Westwood Suite next to the lake.
Future plans being considered include a spa, gym and leisure facility, new restaurant and additional bedrooms. One thing is certain – Close House Hotel & Golf will continue to grow and develop, with the aim to become the most sought after venue in the North East of England.
