About the hotel
Nestled by the Cheviot Hills in the quaint town of Wooler, this family-run former Coaching Inn offers a welcoming ambiance with cosy log fires, seasonal cuisine, stunning scenery, free Wi-Fi and parking. Originally built in the 17th Century by the Earl of Tankerville, it has a long history of providing comfort and warmth to travellers wishing to explore the beauty of the Northumbrian countryside. To this day, the hotel has retained this traditional spirit of hospitality and has garnered a fantastic reputation for its friendly and helpful service.
Central to this is the cultivation of a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere supported by some wonderful views, lovely gardens and a sense of charm and style that effortlessly evokes the captivating allure of its vibrant past. The Hotel offers 17 en-suite bedrooms and, as benefits a building of this age, each one is wonderfully unique and full of individual character. Tastefully decorated in a style reflective of the wider property, what these rooms do share is a commitment to providing a high standard of comfort and a peaceful night’s sleep. Every room also features complimentary Wi-Fi access, freeview TV, hairdryer, direct-dial telephone and tea and coffee making facilities as well as some fantastic views of the gardens and the surrounding countryside. There are room types to suit all kinds of traveller, including single, classic and superior double or twin options. What’s more there is also a separate 2-bedroom Garden House in the grounds. Of course, no visit to Tankerville Arms would be complete without sampling the delights of the elegant Cheviot Restaurant. Wowing locals and visitors alike, it has built up a dedicated following over the years, becoming a real hit among those who appreciate truly great food. Their first-class Chef prides himself on using fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce wherever possible. Specialising in traditional Northumbrian fayre, the menu features such regional delights as beef from Glendale livestock, lamb from the Till Valley and fresh fish from Amble – all beautifully accompanied by Northumbrian Real Ales and local meads. The restaurant itself has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and overlooks the Hotel’s beautifully maintained garden where guests can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on those warmer Summer days. During the colder months, the Copper Bar has its own large log fire and is the perfect place for pre-dinner drinks and socialising with friends old and new. With such splendid surroundings and exemplary service, it is no surprise to learn that the Hotel is a perfect venue for weddings and other celebrations. From small intimate affairs to lavish occasions for up to 100 people, the hotel has the flexibility and the know-how to ensure that all events are both memorable and successful. For conferences and other corporate events, they have two meeting rooms able to cater for up to 30 people boardroom-style or 70 theatre-styles.

It also offers ample on-site parking for all guests. The nearest city is Newcastle, about an hour’s drive away, whilst it is approximately a 90 minute drive to Edinburgh. Berwick Railway Station offers excellent transport links to the rest of the country and the hotel can arrange a taxi to collect guests upon request.

The hotel resides right in the heart of North Northumberland and the local area offers an abundance of great activities and attractions. Epitomising the virtues of peace, quiet and complete relaxation it is renowned as a place of stunning natural beauty. The Cheviot Hills make for a wild, romantic landscape of rolling hills and unspoilt rivers and features awe-inspiring views across the sea. The dramatic hills and sheltered valleys of Northumberland National Park stretch all the way from Hadrian’s Wall to the Scottish Border creating a virtual paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. With ample opportunities for walking, rambling, bird-watching, cycling and horse-riding, the area is infused with an inspired sense of freedom and adventure. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has a rhythm all of its own, taking in Lindisfarne Castle, Gospel Garden and Priory and also the Owl Sanctuary in Beal.

Indeed, younger visitors are sure to recognise it as the location of Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films.

Beautiful, traditional and a pleasurable stay.
A 17th century coaching inn.
Beautifully quirky, with beautiful furniture, pictures. Helpful, polite staff and fantastic breakfasts. The evening menu should be simpler, more traditional and straightforward to match the surroundings. The rooms were comfortable and cosy, spacious, warm and sympathetically decorated (you wouldn't expect cold, modern and clinical in this stunning old stone building!). Plenty of refreshment items and facilities. WiFi available, but unfortunately we couldn't get a signal. Not a problem as the weather was lovely and we were out most of the time. The garden area was lovely to sit in in the evening. A lovely stay.
Friendly staff, very clean,food in restaurant was good of an evening.( Breakfast was a little dry )
