A brief history
The Inn started off as a two up, two down farmhouse in the mid 1800s and then an enterprising farmer decided to add some more rooms and take in guests.It actually became a “hotel” in the 1890s with landlords staying for many years before moving on.
From 1923 to 1954 The Webb brothers ran the Inn, one of the brothers training racehorses on the site.Photographs of some of his winners can be seen on the lounge walls of Inn today
Before, during and after the second world war there was an R.A.F. site two miles away and many of the officers , including Princess Margaret’s first love Peter Townsend visited the Inn regularly. In fact there is a Townsend Court in Acklington.There are photographs of the R.A.F. camp on the walls of the Inn
