Jesmond Dene House can be found in the fantastic Victorian pleasure park of Jesmond Dene. The valley was donated to the people of Newcastle by Lord Armstrong, a Newcastle born industrialist who transformed our world with his inventions.

Jesmond Dene House sits in this park and provides a fantastic place to visit or simply stop by during your walk through the Dene. The hotel itself is independent of any larger chain and so the quality of the experience there is down to the hard work of the owners and staff, who exemplify the North East of England’s hospitality.

Their attention to detail makes the experience even more special. The interior of the hotel is done out in the fantastic Victorian Arts and crafts style, and reminds many of an English country manor, a Victorian townhouse and a modern boutique hotel all at once. The hotel has been modernised tastefully over the years but keeps its authentic historical fabric at the centre.

While small by most modern hotel standards, the forty bedrooms inside ensure that your stay will never feel crowded. This is enhanced by the wonderful calming scenery of the Dene, with a river flowing at the bottom of the hotel garden and wild birds and animals being regular visitors.

The Hotel is regularly chosen for weddings due to its classic style, modern features and sublime setting. The grand hall is perfect for this but is also a great venue for meetings and events.

Jesmond Dene House’s afternoon tea is a well-known treat and enjoyable social event in Newcastle. The menu changes with the seasons, but always offers a tasteful simplicity often lacking from high-end restaurants. In fact, your meal will match the natural world all around you in Jesmond Dene.
