It certainly is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle, in a super stylish yet totally relaxed setting right on the doorstep of the Northumberland National Park.

Our Story…

From the team who brought you the award winning As You Like It, Newton Hall and the Joiner’s Arms, the William de Percy Inn & Crêperie is the latest offering from North-East hospitality group, the Apartment Group.

Opened June 2016, The William de Percy Inn & Crêperie is the result of the transformation and extensive renovation of one of Otterburn’s oldest and iconic buildings, The Percy Arms Hotel which closed in 2012. The old public house and hotel has been developed into two fantastically unique venues, the William de Percy and also a one of a kind, exclusive use wedding venue, dubbed Le Petit Château.

Named for the Norman baron of the same name, the French inspired gastropub and boutique hotel follows suit with Apartment Group’s other award winning venues, which are all renowned for their high quality food, drink and customer experience. The 11th century French noble, William de Percy is well known for establishing the influential House of Percy, who have been Earls and Dukes of Northumberland for over 600 years. There is a rich history in the county surrounding the Percy family; not least through the pub’s building itself that dates back the 17th century.

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…


Le Petit Chateau

Le Petit Château is a wondrous French-inspired wedding venue that’s bursting to the seams with the fantastical. In fact it’s so unique, that all you have to do, if you want to, is rock up and soak up the originality.

Cascading gold curtains, crystal chandeliers, antique gold furniture, a giant marble fireplace, fire on water features and lots more, guests will wander awestruck through the grounds and rooms.

Le Petit Château has capacity for between 160-200 guests and there are a variety of beautiful and different spaces where you can create unique experiences for you and your guests. Say ‘I Do’ in the chic French chapel, go alfresco by the riverside, Mediterranean in the garden or grand in the Ballroom. A different area for each part of your day – it’s up to you and that’s how we like it.

There’s also 30 bedrooms for your guests to relax in after the main event – some even have roll top baths and secret roof top gardens.

Le Petit Château is all yours for your long wedding week or weekend – no golfers, ladies that lunch, other guests or gatecrashers to get in the way of your perfect wedding stay.
