Newton Hall

Newton Hall is a flight of fantasy – a Georgian boutique hotel in spectacular coastal Northumberland that is very quirky, very groovy, and one of the UK’s most talked-about destinations.

It is also ‘The Place’ to be married – a fantasy destination specialising in outdoor weddings where a beach celebration means champagne barbecues, vintage-style beach huts and wedding parties draped over one another.

Food is hugely important to us at Newton Hall. We are specialists in providing the tastefully traditional, however, we are also famous for delivering daringly different events with an amazing array of fabulous feasts and exquisite food to choose from – all unique to Newton Hall.

For weddings and events, Newton Hall will be your very own country manor by the sea. It will be your home and your home only for the whole time you and your guests are here. No strangers, no golfers, no interlopers – and very definitely no other brides and grooms – promise!

And because we already operate some of England’s coolest award-winning venues including Le Petit Chateau and As You Like It, our gorgeous boutique hotel suites with outdoor roof terraces, four-poster beds and stand-alone baths are seriously stylish and supremely comfortable.

We’re also big into families, the more the merrier here at Newton Hall and we’ve got plenty to keep the nippers entertained! Tire them out chasing the tide or exhaust them with a plethora of other activities provided; Newton Hall has it all for a family frolic.

All of this set in cool cosmopolitan country comfort. The only trouble is, you won’t want to leave…

Funky Chunky Furniture

At Funky Chunky Furniture we have one mission and that is to provide you with totally unique, rustic furniture, handmade here in the UK from chunky solid timber and delivered right to your door. We have an extensive range of furniture, including coffee tables and side tables for your living room, dining tables and benches for your dining room, bed frames and chests of drawers for your bedroom and a large selection of shelving and mantels for any room you like. And the best thing is, it is all made from chunky solid wood that will all last forever.

Our skilled craftsmen are professionally trained and know every product like the back of their hands. When an order is received into our workshop the passion is there to be seen. With careful attention to detail in every join, timber sanded to the perfect level of rustic and complete pride when a piece has been finished to our very own high standard. This level of commitment cannot be found in any cheap machine made products and we take great satisfaction in knowing we provide our customers with the best.

We use two kinds of timber in our workshop – pine and oak – both packed with stunning rustic features and characteristics which Mother Nature herself give them. We actually love these features so much that we use a supreme wax finish to enhance them even more, bringing out the beautiful wood grain and showcasing natural knots and cracks in all their glory. To make sure the wax is applied perfectly, we have our very own finishing technicians whose job is to make each piece of timber look as fantastic as possible.

We supply our furniture to all corners of the UK, as well as Germany, France, Belgium and The Netherlands, in a faster time than the industry standard. This means you won’t be waiting months to receive your orders and instead get more time to enjoy them. We’d love to hear from you, so please give us a call, send an email or drop into the workshop for a chat with our friendly customer support team, who will answer any questions or queries you might have and guide you to getting your very own piece of Funky Chunky Furniture.
