Routin Lynn in Northumberland just down the road from me. A hidden gem of a place that even locals struggle to find. It has an ancient, mystical atmosphere that feels truly special.

The Lord Crewe Arms Hotel is a medieval hotel in Blanchland, Northumberland, England. It is dated to 1165 and was used as a hiding hole by monks of nearby Blanchland Abbey for centuries and has hidden stairways and stone flagged floors. The hotel has a vast fireplace where 'General Tom Forster' hid during the 1715 Jacobite rising. The hotel is reputedly haunted by the ghost of his sister, Dorothy Foster.
