  • Historic architecture

In 375 acres on the banks of the River Tees and dating back to 1774, Rockliffe Hall has quite a history, acting as a hospital and the backdrop for parts of Michael Caine’s 1971 film Get Carter. Today it is a five star hotel with 61 spacious rooms characterised by original features such as stained glass windows, marble pillars, and ornate ceilings alongside contemporary furnishings.

Whilst retaining its Gothic charm, the flagship Orangery restaurant has a walk-in wine cellar that’s home to thousands of bins from around the world. The resort also features the brand new restaurant, Nu Sana, located above the spa offering a new dining concept with healthy and nutritious menus (with a few indulgent options too!); or the informal Clubhouse restaurant offering popular and wholesome British classics whilst boasting stunning views across the world-class golf course.
