North East England Golf Breaks

Slaley Hall

North East England is a truly unsung gem as far as golfing breaks are concerned

In many ways, it’s surprising that the North East isn’t mentioned more often whenever the subject of golf weekends in England comes up. After all, the region does border the legendary ‘home of golf’ itself – Scotland – so is it possible that many of us have been unjustly overlooking the North East’s own ample golfing charms down the years?

The short answer to that question is: yes! In fact, we’re well aware of the delights of golfing in North East England here at, which is why you’ll find various leading golf resorts in this fantastic but underrated part of Britain represented on our website.

Nor is it only the sporting action itself that gives you good reason to consider a weekend’s break at a golf hotel in the North East.

So much more than affordability and a warm welcome

OK, let’s get some of the stereotypes out of the way before we go any further. Yes, the sheer warmth of the North East’s hospitality is not a mere myth – you really will find it easier to strike up a conversation with a stranger here than you would anywhere else, whether in the towns, cities and hotels themselves or as you make your way around your chosen course.

One adjective that no longer accurately describes the North East as it once did, though, is “grim”. Yes, this part of the country may have been an industrial heartland for hundreds of years, particularly in relation to coal mining, but it’s not the grimy dockyards or sooty pits that represent the region these days. Instead, you’ll find vibrant shopping, cultural and recreational opportunities across such happening towns and cities as Durham, Sunderland, Gateshead and Newcastle.

Newcastle, in particular, positively gleams with its spectacularly transformed quayside – and much the same can be said of the similarly rejuvenated Gateshead, which boasts world-leading arts venues like BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Sage Gateshead. All of this is without even touching on the fabled Geordie nightlife or the plentiful fine dining also now served up in the North East.
