Rooms fit for a king 

May 2018

Overnight guests at The King’s Head Inn will be bedding down in the inn’s all new bedrooms following a complete refurbishment of the Newton under Roseberry pub's rooms. 

The inn's en suite bedrooms have been updated with a natural palette reflecting the inn’s peaceful, countryside location in Newton under Roseberry.

Original features such as exposed beams, brickwork and a vintage stove have been retained, duck egg tongue and groove paneling line the inn’s fresh-hued en suites, while crisp, white cottons and sage coloured fabrics contribute to a fresh country style. 

Tartan carpets for guests to pad upon and soft furnishings bring a touch of warmth to the rooms in covered 17th century cottages adjacent to the inn, which sits beneath iconic Roseberry Topping.

General manager of the 12-bedroom King's Head Inn Chris Moor said: “We are absolutely delighted with the makeover to our bedrooms and en suite bathrooms. 

“We have invested significantly in refreshing, enhancing and upgrading our facilities so our guests enjoy staying in a lovely environment with a fresh, new look.  

“We have taken our time over the refurbishment to avoid disruption to our guests, and the end result is certainly worth waiting for. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to come and enjoy the new King’s Head Inn with us.”

Landmark sister pub reopens in County Durham following tip to toe refurbishment

April 2018

It's been closed for a major top to toe refurbishment. And now our sister inn The Seaton Lane Inn is open once again with a remarkable new look...

The overhaul includes a total redesign of this landmark County Durham inn’s dining and bar area which has an outdoors-indoors theme, complete with vivid prints; pops of bright, earthy colours and accessories and a blend of contemporary and retro signature furniture and lighting. 

The addition of a bold, botanical-themed orangery complete with water feature and plant walls forms a central showstopper for customers to relax in. 

Each of the inn’s 18 en-suite bedrooms have been refurbished, with signature wallpaper, natural-coloured paneling and metallic detailing. 

In a nod to tradition, the inn’s exterior retains its white upper section, while an olive green ground floor continues the natural theme. 

Seaton resident John Wight was the first customer through the doors. He said: “It’s fantastic. I never envisaged it would look like this – it’s amazing. It’s great to be back. There’s nothing like being at your local, the staff are excellent, you can’t fault them. They are like a family. 

“It’s brilliant to have The Seaton Lane Inn back and looking so beautiful.” 

General manager Paul Brown said: “What a transformation. It is absolutely stunning. The best thing has been seeing people’s reactions when they step inside. We went to great lengths to keep the new interior a secret and the end result is spectacular with real wow-factor. 

“The investment has transformed The Seaton Lane Inn into a sophisticated, yet relaxed place you just won’t want to leave and a tremendous asset for business and consumer guests in County Durham, serving quality homemade food and drink all day, every day as well as providing high-quality, AA four-star accommodation.”
