Our Team

Paul & Gemma Cook took over as new owners at The Coach House in April 2017 and have been busy putting their stamp on this charming hotel, bar and restaurant. The couple were keen to move back to their native North East to run this business in such beautiful surroundings. The ethos of The Coach House is good food using locally sourced ingredients, excellent service and a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Gemma and Paul have developed the business over the last 2 years, Paul as head chef and Gemma running front of house, along with a small dedicated team. Our team will go above and beyond to make your experience at The Coach House a memorable stay.

Otterburn Hall Estate

The Coach House is located on the 500 acre Otterburn Hall estate in the Northumberland National Park, officially the National Park of the Year 2018 and International Dark Sky Park.

Originally the building housed the stables and coaches serving Otterburn Hall, a country retreat built in 1870 for Lord James Douglas, to entertain friends and engage in outdoor pursuits such as hunting and fishing.

The Coach House is the perfect place to relax and unwind, whether you are attending a wedding nearby, a business event, or as a base to explore the Northumberland National Park and its many visitor attractions.

The Otterburn Hall Estate is a haven for wildlife.  The perfect place to spot red squirrels, deer and wild birds.

Enjoy walks exploring the 500 acre grounds and find the 2 lakes and stream.  A member of staff will always be keen to point you in the best direction to explore.
