Although it looks like your typical Georgian country house from the outside, inside Newton Hall knows how to have fun, with lashings of playful ideas and a good dash of the eccentric (there's a whole Costume Room dedicated to dressing up).


Marry on the Wedding Hill, have your drinks reception on the beach (complete with vintage huts and a tractor with a trailer decked out in hay bales to take you there) before partying in the made-for-romance Garden Suite.

Ceremony capacity: 150; Plate cost per head: £70;

A gloriously eccentric Georgian pile on the Northumberland coast, Newton Hall overlooks Beadnell Bay - a dramatic golden sweep practically in its back garden.

Wedding parties can make full use of the beach, from photos on the sand with props (the hall has vintage beach huts and a costume cupboard at your disposal), to seaside barbecues and champagne around the campfire.

There's even a special 'wedding hill' with a hilltop gazebo and 360-degree views, perfect for sunset.

Ceremony capacity: 150; Packages per person: £54

This new venue has a focus on fun.

The only site in Northumberland to offer ceremonies outside, it even has a purpose-built wedding hill complete with gazebo. Inside the Georgian pile, the decor is a bold twist on the traditional, including a costume room, which is ideal for a photo booth.
