If you can remember our first visit to St Mary’s Inn back at the end of 2014, you’ll remember us saying how much we wanted to stay over. Given the creepy nature of the property and fact the rooms look beautiful, we booked up to stay in February as a very much needed relaxing weekend.
Our room, Sweethope Loughs, was £90 for bed and breakfast for us both. When booking, I specifically asked for a view of the now derelict hospital. Pretty odd, yes, but we do love Urbex sites like 28dayslater.co.uk.
Towards the end of February, we raided our piggy bank and stayed at St Mary’s Inn for a post Valentines weekend away. The review is coming soon so keep an eye out for it!
Whilst we were there, we indulged in one of their new signature Afternoon Tea’s (£14.99)*.
When I heard that the old St Mary’s Hospital which was known as The Gateshead Lunatic Asylum was being converted in to luxury housing and a beautiful gastro pub – St Mary’s Inn, I jumped at the chance to pop along for a visit.
