Surge in overseas bookings for Slaley Hall

Slaley Hall’s success in the domestic market is being mirrored overseas with the leading golf resort reporting a marked increase in international enquiries in 2016.

The award-winning venue in Hexham – a member of QHotels, the UK’s largest golf resort operator – has enjoyed a rapid rise in bookings from the continent this year as visitors seek to take advantage of the favourable exchange rate.

Set in 1,000 acres of Northumberland moorland and forest and featuring two 18-hole championship courses and numerous other sports and leisure facilities, Slaley Hall is rated among the UK’s top locations for an individual, group or corporate golf break.

Just a 30-minute drive from Newcastle airport, the resort – which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year – is ideally situated to explore the very best golf courses in northern England, while it is also a great venue for combining with a trip to Scotland.

Christopher Wayne-Wills, general manager at Slaley Hall, said: “With outstanding golf and leisure facilities coupled with an amazing setting, Slaley Hall has so much to offer to both golfers and non-golfers, and we’re delighted that so many overseas visitors are taking the chance to enjoy the resort and the surrounding region.”

One of 10 QHotels golf resorts and the flagship golf venue in the group, the resort was named best golf resort in the north of England at the 2016 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards and is looking forward to further success under the guidance of Christopher Wayne-Wills, following his appointment earlier this year.
