Even allowing for all the progress Newcastle has made in recent years, it’s still quite safe to say it’s one of the last places that springs to mind when you think of a likely setting for a country house holiday. Unless, of course, you happen to be thinking of the Jesmond Dene House. It’s not exactly in the country — in fact it’s just a mile and a half outside the city center, in the Jesmond Dene public park — but the experience is a remarkably rural one.

Okay, it’s not quite fox-huntingly, tweed-wearingly rural, but it’s close: an 1870s Arts and Crafts mansion, ensconced in a dense wooded valley, it’s a far cry from the rehabilitated industrial setting one expects in Newcastle. Like the best country house hotels, it’s full of personality; no cookie-cutter country posh but rather a smattering of Victorian-era architectural details mixed in with quite a lot of vibrant contemporary interior design. The result is just luxe enough and just stylish enough, without going too far either way — again, exactly as a country house hotel should be.

The restaurant is a fine one, as tends to be the case when the hotel’s owner happens to have been a Michelin-starred chef. In this case it’s Terry Laybourne, one of the leading lights of the Northeast’s culinary scene. And of course there are more restaurants, including some more of Laybourne’s, just minutes away — though there’s no shame at all in staying in, and making a proper country getaway of it.
