The house is situated in Ryton, on the edge of Northumberland, two miles from A1M, two miles from Gateshead Metro Centre and four miles from Newcastle City Centre, with its beautiful architecture, ground breaking theatre and vibrant musical entertainment.
Hedgefield House has a colourful history, prior to being used as a bed and breakfast. Hedgefield House dates back to 1804, with documented evidence that it was the first home in Britain to have a telephone installed.
In 1877, the inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, made the first experimental telephone call to an underground site, the local coal mine.
Near to Hedgefield House, in Ryton, Blaydon and Throckley, there is a wide choice of restaurants.
This hotel is the best I have ever stayed in. The outside was like something out of pride and prejudice.
