About the hotel

Welcome to Hedgefield House, a stunning Georgian mansion set in four acres of beautiful award- winning gardens, on the edge of the Northumbrian countryside. The house has a colourful history, prior to being converted into guest accommodation. Dating back to 1804, we have documented evidence that Hedgefield House was the first home in Britain to have a telephone installed.

In 1877, the inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, made the first experimental phone call from the drawing room to the local coal mine. We are ideally situated only 10 minutes from the city centre and Gateshead Metro shopping complex and 10 minutes walk to historic Ryton village, with its numerous cafes and restaurants. We are also only a short distance from the River Tyne and the Hadrian’s Wall walk. Its location makes it perfect for hikers, bikers and city visitors. All en-suite rooms are decorated and furnished in lavish French Louis style and are well equipped, maintaining many original features. A continental breakfast is also included. We have great leisure facilities for our guests to use, including a sauna, gym and relaxation area. Free parking is available for guests.

Delightful place to stay

We were delighted with our late booking at Hedgefield House and the next time we are visiting Newcastle and Tyne valley area this will be our first choice.

The accommodation was well worth every penny. We paid extra for an en-suite and had a warm bathroom larger than many hotel rooms. The décor throughout the hotel is a pleasant fusion of Georgian and Chinese. We particularly loved the wing chairs in the bedroom so pleasant having somewhere for two people to sit other than the bed. On reflection we decided that the continental breakfast with the wide choice of fruit, cereals, cheeses and fresh hot croissants was a welcome alternative to indifferent good breakfast. Sadly we never saw the feline concierge or his female assistant - a reason for a return visit.

A lovely stay

We stayed in the suite double room with the golden dressing room which is a gorgeous spacious room which overlooks the beautiful gardens.

Lovely attentive hosts who were very understanding and helpful when I made a payment mistake. We only stayed for one night but would loved to of stayed longer in this peaceful, clean and welcoming house. Thank you very much.
