QLodges Our Stunning Lodge, A Real Home From Home

Last week we were lucky enough to spend a glorious long weekend at QLodges Slaley Hall, Northumberland. Nestled in 1,000 acres of breathtaking countryside, this really is the perfect family lodge break. When you visit a resort for the first time you really don’t know what to expect. Will the lodge be nice? Will it meet your expectations? Will the kids get bored? I could go on but you get my drift.


Well, I need not have worried. I will share in my next post just how much he loved the wonderful estate and all the incredible activities. But today I wanted to share just how gorgeous the lodge is, and trust me this can’t be done in a paragraph, it was stunning.

Check-in takes place at Slaley Hall main reception, and was a quick easy process, where we received our lodge keys, and the key to our very own golf buggy. Yes, you read right every lodge has its very own golf buggy. At first I though it was a little extravagant, I mean what is wrong with walking right? But the Slaley Hall Estate is vast and the buggy was a godsend, perfect for nipping out for a spot of lunch or nipping up to the spa or golf club. And you still get plenty of opportunities to enjoy the wonderful walks, but as a family we loved the golf buggy.
