    Nestled within the beautiful Northumberland countryside in the picturesque village of Whitfield, The Elks Head Inn offers bright rooms and hearty, locally sourced cuisine. On the banks of the West Allen River, it is just 15 minutes’ drive from Hadrian’s Wall. The warmly furnished rooms all provide modern, en suite bathrooms and satellite TV. Most rooms enjoy bridge or riverside views, and all include free tea and coffee. Using game from the local Whitfield estate, The Elks Head serves meals in the pub or its 2 dining rooms with river views. A wide selection of wines are also available. Scenic walks can be enjoyed throughout the beautiful surrounding countryside, and guests can fish in the West Allen River. The market town of Hexham with its ancient abbey is just 10 minutes’ drive away, and Newcastle is 1 hour away by car.
