Jesmond Dene House :-
Hotel and Restaurant
A grand house with contemporary style, a leafy setting near the heart of the city. Jesmond Dene House is neither a townhouse nor a country house hotel. It's simply 40 well-designed rooms in a richly historic building offering understated luxury and rather good food. Overlooking the wooded valley of Jesmond Dene, it guarantees peace, escapism and a refreshing change. Newcastle's city centre, however, is only a five-minute drive.

Venue History: One of Newcastle's finest residential buildings, Jesmond Dene House is full of architectural bravura, historical detail and an intriguing cast list. The original Georgian house, designed by John Dobson - responsible for many of Newcastle's handsome streets - was bought in 1871 by Captain Andrew Noble, a partner in Lord Armstrong's Tyneside-based shipbuilding and armaments business.

As the business grew, and Armstrong took a back seat, Noble needed a grander house for business entertaining. He commissioned leading Arts and Crafts architect Norman Shaw (Cragside, New Scotland Yard), and local architect Frank Rich, to double the size of the house adding a west wing, billiard room, Gothic porch, Great Hall and a fleet of bedrooms - all in typically grand and eclectic Arts and Crafts style. The panelling, plasterwork, stone carvings, exuberant chimneys and stained glass date from this time.

Knighted in 1902, Sir Andrew Noble moved in high society. Rudyard Kipling, Lord Baden-Powell, Admiral Togo, Chinese ministers and Japanese princes have all stayed or dined here. After Sir Andrew's widow died, in 1929, the house was variously used as a college, Civil Defence establishment (tunnels still exist under the house), seminary and, until recently, as a residential school. It took 18 months to convert the empty building, Grade ll-Listed, to a hotel which opened in 2005.
