Luxury glamping cabins are being created in the grounds of Northumberland luxury hotel Newton Hall by The Apartment Group. Work is now underway on 22 Scandinavian-style cabins, which will replace around 50 static caravans at the site at Newton-by-the-Sea, with plans to open in June.
CEO Debrah Dhugga said: “In Northumberland we have a series of caravans that are around 50 years old and in a bit of a state. Newton Hall and Luxury Cabins will have 22 cabins which are being built now, in a very Scandi style, and there will be nothing like them in the North East.
“I think for businesses in hospitality in general, outdoors is the new indoors, which is why we are investing in outside venues to give us some return and help us to grow. Everyone talks about Cornwall and its hotels, beaches and foodie scene, but people don’t see Northumberland as ‘luxury’ and it’s one of my ambitions to make that happen.”
