A Northumberland pub is celebrating after it was listed in the top 10 per cent of hotels in the world.

The Northumberland Arms in Felton has been named a 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award Winner by TripAdvisor, a welcome boost ahead of the pub re-opening on Monday, May 17.

The hotel, which has six recently renovated ‘boutique’ bedrooms has been commended for earning ‘positive traveller reviews and ratings over the last year’ and delivering ‘fantastic experiences to travellers around the globe.’

Stuart Young of the Northumberland Pub Co, which operates the Northumberland Arms, said: “Being named in the top 10 percent of hotels worldwide is a fantastic achievement and we are very grateful that our guests have reviewed us so highly on the platform.

“This is an excellent testament to the hard work of our staff at the venue, who go above and beyond to ensure that our customer service is the best it can be.
