A Weekend Escape at Historic Langley Castle

Langley Castle in Northumberland  was built in 1350 by Sir Thomas de Lucy.  Set in 10 acres of beautiful gardens and woodlands, it is now a popular hotel. With its seven-foot-thick walls, big log fires and cosy atmosphere the Castle is a peaceful refuge to escape the world for a while.
