History Walks or History Evening for Dunstan Hall 

Would you enjoy a walk learning about the history of the area? Your guide studied both archeology and geology at Uni and the walks explore the history, nature and landscapes of the Northumberland coast. You'll hear a wealth of stories centered around the local castles and communities spanning recent and ancient history. Here's what other people say ".... the walk was most informative, easy paced and enjoyable" If you're staying at Dunstan Hall, we can organise a history 'evening' to learn about the local history and more specifically that of Dunstan Hall. Let us know if you're interested before your visit and we can get things arranged for you.

Local musicians

Imagine being serenaded by Northumbrian music played on the Northumbrian pipes and fiddle, or having a classical pianist play in the music room while you’re dining at Dunstan Hall? Andy and Margaret Watchorn have many years experience and perform regularly throughout Northumberland, other parts of the UK and Europe. They have had a special connection with Dunstan Hall for over twenty five years, having played for concerts and private functions for previous owners. Take a look at pipes and fiddle for more information To book Andy and Margaret, just ask us for more details ...

Bouquets, Champagne & Chocolates

Spoil your loved one. We will organise little indulgences to be left in the property with a special message.

The art of tasting chocolate!

Chocolate is one of the most versatile foods you'll find, but how much chocolate have you actually experienced. This masterclass by Coeur de Xocolat will teach you how to enjoy chocolate on a new level. Choose between having David Greenwood-Haigh, our Chocolatier, run your event, either 'virtually' or in person (depending on numbers.) Each participant will have their own tasting kit and range of chocolate to work through as David talks you through all you need to know! Just ask us for more details ...
