The village of Longhorsley is situated seven miles northwest of Morpeth and 14 miles south from Alnwick. It is bordered on the north by the river Coquet. Longhorsley's most notable feature is Linden Hall, a country hotel and restaurant with a golf course and leisure facilities, which was, for 180 years, a private home. The Hall has Grade II listed building status. The estate of Longhorsley had been owned by the family of the Earl of Carlisle since the 12th century. In 1813 Charles William Bigge, a successful Newcastle banker, built himself a mansion house on the estate. He named the new house after an adjacent stream. There are two churches in the village: the Anglican church of St Helen dating from 1688, and the Roman Catholic Church, St Thomas of Canterbury, erected in 1841. The village pub is The Shoulder of Mutton Inn. With the Roman wall to the south and coastal fortresses to the east, this part of the county has many celebrated sites - from the colliery museum and county archives at Woodhorn, near Ashington, to the iron age hill fort and rock carvings at Lordenshaws, near Rothbury. Some of Northumberland's finest country estates can be found close by, including Wallington, Belsay and Cragside, all of which are open to the public.
