A truely stellar collision of history and the stars. Our beautiful Castle lies beneath the world renowned Northumbrian dark skies. This out of this world experience will combine fine food and luxurious accommodation with a visit to the world famous Kielder Observatory where you will enjoy an evening all about the stars.
Tuesday 14th January 2020 - NEW DATE JUST RELEASED
Tuesday 19th November 2019 (FULLY BOOKED)
Aurora Nights are all about learning the science behind this rare, beautiful phenomenon; what is it, where does it come from and where do the colours come from? You'll also be armed with the knowledge to know when the Northern Lights are happening and how to find the best locations locally to try to see them. You'll be given a tour of the observatory and the equipment and the experienced team will explain how it all works, and if the skies are clear you’ll be peering deep into the universe, both through telescopes and with the naked eye on the viewing decks.
A Universe Full of Stars Tuesday 7th January 2020
The Universe... How did it start? How old is it? How big is it? How will it end? These are some of the questions that have engaged civilisations throughout millennia. On this night, with your collaboration, we will attempt to unravel it all. We will dive head first in our current understanding of it and explore the probability of how accurate the current theories are. From the uncertainty of the big bang to the cosmic microwave background and on to the evolution of the universe to what we see today. After the talk we will guide you through the observatory, introduce you to the large aperture telescopes we have here and give guidance on how best to use them, and if the skies are clear and depending on the lunar calendar, we will observe objects within our galaxy that you may never have known existed.
The package includes:
If you wish to arrive a day early, or extend your stay for another night, then we are pleased to offer a special rate of only £99.00 (B&B).
You may also wish to upgrade to a Deluxe Room within the main Castle for an additional £20.00 per person per night.

A Horror Roleplaying Experience
An immersive horror experience, set within the walls and grounds of Langley Castle Hotel, complete with overnight accommodation in a Castle View Room, and a meal in the 2 Rosette Restaurant. Presented by local storyteller and gamemaster Chris Hately, this collaborative, tabletop, horror story promises to be a memorable, one-of-a-kind event.
The Grey Lady is, at its heart, a tabletop roleplaying game [TTRPG] experience, utilising the spectacular backdrop of Langley Castle and its history to build a truly unique atmosphere. From that foundation, the gamemaster [GM] leads the players in collaborative storytelling, in which each player takes control of a different character. Their choices and actions will impact how their story plays out; who lives, who dies, and whether the mystery at the heart of the story is ever revealed. Designed for beginners and old-hands alike, this night is perfect for anyone who wants to tell scary stories in the dead of night.
Residential guests are welcome to arrive from 1.00 pm, where Chris will be on hand to get to know the players, and answer any questions they may have. The night proper begins at 3.00 pm with a welcome from Chris, who will explain the intent and timings of the night, and answer any last minute queries or questions. From there they will be taken to dinner at Langley Castles fantastic restaurant, where they can get to know Chris and the other players better. Once dinner is finished, Chris will give the players a tour of the castle itself, familiarising them with the locales in which their story will take place. Finally, as the sun sets and darkness takes hold, the group will move towards the outdoor grave site of Cadwallader and Josephine Bates, where the game will take place. If weather conditions are not conducive to an outdoor game, the game will be moved to the chapel atop the battlements, which Josephine had built in memory of her late husband.
The game itself is a modified version of Cavalry Games’ fantastic Ten Candles rules system. Relying on players’ telling their own story, with some GM input and occasional dice rolling, the party must survive the horrors they are presented, with each failed roll extinguishing on of ten candles in the centre of the table. As each candle dies, the GM gains more and more control of the story, until everything finally goes dark, and the players’ characters meet their demises.
Note: This event contains adult, horror themes, such as murder, suicide, and hauntings. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 without parental accompaniment. If you have any concerns, contact Chris Hately or Langley Castle, and we will be happy to help.

Some kind words
"Wow - Amazing - Magical even!"
We booked this hotel as really a last minute thing, we just needed to relax after a stressful few weeks. Well, The Langley Castle Hotel certainly fulfilled our criteria!!
On arrival we were warmly greeted by the hotel reception staff and showed to our suite. We had booked the Castle View Suite. These suites are located outside of the castle, but your view is a stunning one. We had some wonderful peacocks sitting outside our patio doors. The suite we stayed in was just so quaint, steeped in history yet modern facilities. The bed was very large, very comfortable and the room was very clean. We loved it. We decided to go into the main castle, to explore and had drinks in the drawing room. Service was so good, the waiters were so attentive. I honestly can't find any fault with this hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone. The whole experience i found was quite magical, we will definitely be rebooking, i can't wait to go back but maybe a stay in the actual castle next time

“The Castle of Delights”
"So you see the castle as you drive up to the door. Looks amazing..But as in all oustanding hotels it is the detail and even more detail that makes a stay so special. And my stay was so so special. Great room.large. comfy bed. and so clean I felt I needed a shower to use it! The rooms in the castle where styled exactly right. Enough castle and plenty of comfort if you understand me. The Sunday Lunch provided the best Roast Beef I have ever eaten and Dinner in the evening taken in the new glass cube of a room..instead of the stylish grand castle dining room.. was excellent, Honest outstanding balances of flavour and texture and well craftmanship.
The final cream on this lovely place where the Staff. Stunning, Smart, Friendly and always smiling and helpful. If you do nothing else, visit Langley. You will irritate yourself by thinking where you have been that is better.. and I cannot think of anything. So I will be going back."

“2 nights in a Tower room”
"This place magical! We stayed 2 nights in the tower room, which as the name suggests, is right at the top of one of the towers! 104 steps up in fact. Not for the unfit but well worth it. The staff were great, and the food was Devine. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation in the area, and would love to stay here again."

"Such a wonderful place, excellent room, service and overall a lovely experience, we didn’t stay in the castle but thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the food was fabulous ! Will defiantly return to this stunning venue".

" Birthday Treat"
"Spent an evening there with my my husband for my birthday. It was one of the castle view rooms. Fabulous room with very comfortable bed and powerful shower. One of the best things about the stay was the staff. Sophie on reception was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. Reece, one of the waiting staff was brilliant. He really looked after us. Again nothing was too much trouble. We had an evening meal there and it was delicious. Everything was perfect. Breakfast the following day was lovely too. We also had afternoon tea and it was a real treat. Our whole stay there was excellent, we highly recommend and we’ll definitely be back."

"Have stayed twice now at Langley Castle, very nice"
"We have just stayed, again, in the Radcliffe room at Langley, for a night, during Easter break (we stayed here last year). The area seems remote, ( convenient to those in Newcastle, I'm guessing) but the location is perfect to tour the best preserved portions of the Roman Wall. Also, the cathedral in Hexham has a Saxon crypt (as well as the nicest, kindest volunteers!) and an interesting interactive display/museum room for children. I loved having a cocktail and perusing the menus(and ordering- reminded me of Ireland in that respect) in the beautiful drawing room before going down to the Josephine Restaurant on the ground floor.(also where breakfast is served). Our bedroom had a gigantic bathroom with shower stall, large separate built in tub, two sinks, and even a dry sauna room! It is my favorite bedroom for this reason and for the tower window enclave with bench/table....so charming. The food and service were excellent on both of our stays. If you are interested, each morning at ten, a member of staff gives a tour/history of the castle ....with the highlight being the top open roof complete with turrets and breathtaking views. ."

"The title says it all. From the moment I checked in,to the moment I checked out everything was just perfect. If you fancy staying at an establishment that you don’t need to moan about,or have to take the time of thinking,”how do I word a bad review,” well stay at Langley Castle. Enough said I think!....JUST ENJOY!"

"We enjoyed everything about this place. Excellent attentive staff. Beautiful, well appointed and clean Castle View room. Superb food, both at dinner and breakfast, well presented and good quality fare. Congratulations Langley Castle you work hard to get things right and it's working. We will return."
Ron M - Welshpool, UK - November 2018
"Went here for a few days to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. This is a true castle with a fantastic heritage, the tour of the battlements is a must and not only covers the history of the castle but local and national history going back to Roman times. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming and the food in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner is excellent. Our room/suite was comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. we would definitely visit again, sooner than later."

"Literally my favourite place"
"My husband and I got married here 13 years ago and I try to get back whenever I can! It is such a beautiful place and you can't help but have happy memories here. We stayed in the Castleview rooms which is in the castle grounds (a minute or so walk). I prefer to stay in the grounds as I love the walk up to the castle, you just don't get the same appreciation when you stay within the castle! The rooms are unashamedly luxurious with an authentic Tudor feel. We ate in the restaurant and the food was (as always!) gorgeous. Breakfast was plentiful and lovely. The walks around the castle are a good way to burn off the extra portions! We had a wonderful stay with our teenage children and can't wait to come back!"
Jodie M - Southport, UK - September 2018
"What a beautiful place. This is a first visit to the UK and thought it would be fun to find a castle to stay in. The castle and grounds are beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were in the Radcliffe room and were amazed at the size of the room and bathroom which also had a sauna. We had dinner in the restaurant which was amazing, it was one of the best meals of our trip. Service was fantastic and would highly recommend either a stay or dining there."

"A perfect getaway"
"Well what can we say but what a beautiful hotel Langley Castle. After many years of visiting we still are overwhelmed by the warm welcome by all staff. The hotel grounds the history and food outstanding to say the least. A special thank you to Bob and Jess who are not only professional but make every visit a joy. If you are looking for that something special Langley Castle is a hidden gem in the heart of Northumberland and not one to be missed."
