A warm welcome awaits you from Susan & Stuart Collingwood who took over The Railway Inn in June 2009. Situated on the edge of Acklington village, located only 4 miles from the A1. Northumberland is famous for its coastline and historical ,including its wonderful castles which are only a short journey.
Set in 2 acres of pleasant grounds with its abundance of trees and shrubs,we have a 22 pitch touring caravan site, all with electric hook up, toilet and shower block, and small park.
The caravan park is located at the front of the inn, so getting your evening meal at the inn is only a stones throw from your caravan. Delicious home cooked food is served using local produce where you can dine in our newly refurbished, or in front of our wood burning stove in our cosy bar.
We also have 3 self-catering holiday cottages adjacent to the inn, which are available to let.
The inn has an interesting background, and started off as a two up, two down farmhouse in the mid 1800s, when the enterprising farmer decided to add some more rooms and take in guests.
It actually became a hotel in the 1890s with the landlords staying for many years before moving on.
From 1923 to 1954 The Webb brothers ran the pub, one of the brothers training racehorses on the site.
Photographs of some of his winners can be seen on the lounge walls of the pub today.
Before, during and after the Second World War there was an R.A.F site two miles up the road and many of the officers, including Princess Margarets first love, Peter Townsend, visited the pub regularly. In fact, there is a Townsend Court in Acklington village. We have photographs of the R.A.F. camp on the walls of the pub.
