Slaley Hall has emerged as a surprising passage for overseas tourists who are heading to Scotland for a golf break.
During a customer review, the Northumberland golf resort discovered that visitors from abroad were using it as a stop-off point on their way to Edinburgh and Fife.
The club was recently voted the Best Golf Hotel/Resort in the north of England for the fourth successive year and Slaley Hall’s head of golf, Jonny Mould, admitted he was pleasantly surprised with the results of the review that was conducted.
“We were surprised to see the number of overseas guests who said their visit to Slaley Hall was part of a two or even three-centre golf break,” he said.
“It would seem the resort’s close proximity to the Scottish border is favourable to many as it means they can stay here then jump in their hire car and be in Scotland in 45 minutes.”
