120 jobs saved at historic hotel Lumley Castle after pre-pack deal with Lord Scarbrough

A 14th Century hotel in County Durham has been saved from closure after the property’s owner completed a deal to acquire it out of administration.

Lumley Castle, based near Chester-le-Street, has hosted thousands of weddings and events over the years, and is also known for its themed medieval banquets and escape room, as well as providing a backdrop to cricket matches at Durham’s nearby Riverside ground. The future of the castle has now been safeguarded, along with 120 jobs, after Lord Scarbrough and his trustees – the owners of the castle – joined forces with Bespoke Hotels, to lead the hotel through its next chapter.
