Northumberland, arguably most famous for its Roman ruins, is the northernmost county in England, stretching from Tyne and Wear in the South to the Scottish borders in the north. With its stunning natural landscapes and miles of coastline the county of Northumberland makes for an amazing holiday destination; however, it is also an important centre of industry, welcoming many business travellers as well as tourists to its picturesque market towns and quaint villages.
A Great Place to Do Business at Northumberland Business Hotels
Like many regions of the north of England, coal mining was once central to the Northumberland economy and while most of the pits have now closed, there are still a few open cast mines in operation. Today, the economy comprises mainly of other sectors, notably tourism, which is no surprise considering the sheer wealth of historic attractions in the region, from Lindisfarne to Hadrian's Wall. While Northumberland may not be the first thing that pops into your mind when you think business hub, many major companies have operations in the county, a number of which are a part of the Northeast of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC).
Great Business Hotels in Northumberland
There are, then, lots of reasons why you might be visiting Northumberland on business and thankfully there are several hotels more than happy to accommodate business travellers, offering generous business and conference facilities. Facilities such as computers and free WiFi, can also be very useful if you're on holiday and looking to research activities and attractions in the local area. Many of the business hotels in Northumberland are located in some of the most picturesque parts of the region, so even if you are on business you can still enjoy the beautiful scenery and perhaps soak up a little culture and history.
As is typical of Best Western Hotels, the Beaumont Best Western has good business facilities, including a conference and business centre and is well located in the market town of Hexham, which, due to its proximity to Hadrian's Wall, is very popular with tourists. For larger accommodation that encompasses a spa and golf course, as well as business amenities, you might consider the four-star Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club located in Morpeth.
