Hotels in Corbridge
Once a bustling garrison town where Roman soldiers would pick up food and supplies, Corbridge is now a scenic village in the Northumberland countryside.
Book one of our Corbridge hotels and explore the stone buildings and old-fashioned shop fronts of a place which outwardly has changed little over the decades.
Corbridge village centre has been renowned for its small boutiques since the 19th century, and some of the shops still bear their old-fashioned fronts. Individual shops include art and craft store Delight and Wisdom, fashion shop Katie Kerr, and Kute Clothing, which stocks clothes and gifts for children, including paint-your-own pyjamas. Brocksbushes Farm, just out of town, has a farm shop selling cheeses, jams, chutneys, beers, cordials, freshly baked bread and more. There's also a 35-acre pick-your-own fruit farm, a tea room selling homemade cakes, scones, pies and sandwiches, and frequent events, including Christmas and summer fairs, tasting days and meet-the-animals days.
There are several art galleries in Corbridge. The James Alder fine art gallery specialises in Victorian and early 20th-century oils and watercolours, including Scottish and northern English landscapes. At the Off the Wall Gallery you can see paintings, glasswork, ceramics, handmade furniture, woodwork and metalwork, mainly by artists from the north east. At the Craft Works Gallery, you'll find more art and craftwork and gifts, including jewellery, ornaments and rugs, many of them handmade by local artists.
A short drive from Corbridge is Hexham Abbey, which dates back more than 1,300 years. There's plenty to discover here, including an exhibition on the Abbey's history, colourful stained glass windows and historic artefacts including a 7th-century Saxon bishop's throne. Corbridge's Saxon church, built mainly from stone from Hadrian's Wall, is thought to have been built around the same time as the Abbey and consecrated in about 676AD. However, it has been altered and added to over the years, so is now made up of a variety of architectural styles.
There's no better place to explore Corbridge's Roman heritage than in Corbridge Roman Town, the remains of the Roman settlement of Coria. Accompanied by your audio guide, you can walk through the main street, past the remains of granaries, markets, workshops and temples. In the museum, you'll find the Corbridge Hoard, an excellently preserved collection of Roman armour, tools, weapons, writing SEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTIONts and papyrus. The Hoard was discovered in 1964, buried in an iron-bound wooden chest – you can see a video about its excavation at the museum.
Eating and drinking
Tuck into tarts, cakes, sandwiches, pies, quiches, cream teas and more at the Corbridge Larder, which also has a deli which stocks more than 2,000 food lines. Here you'll find 100 types of cheese, 80 types of jam, marmalade and honey, and a lot of local produce. The Errington Arms, a former coaching inn dating back to the 1750s, offers real ales, a log fire in winter, home-cooked pub classics and occasional live music. There's an impressive selection of sandwiches here – try Masala Madness, tandoori chicken with a cucumber and mint raita, or Three Little Pigs, filled with sausage, bacon and black pudding. Or head to Artisam, one of five eateries in the North East owned by restaurateur Kevin Liu, for Chinese food in historic surroundings.
