Descendents of Alfred Backhouse, the original founder of Rockliffe Hall, were the special guests at the opening of a multi-million pound project and were invited to cut the ribbon in the stunning atrium-style reception.
After many years in the planning, Rockliffe Hall, the multi-million pound project deep in the County Durham countryside, is now operating its new hotel, golf and spa development.
Nick Holmes, managing director of Rockliffe Hall, said: Everyone here is so keen to create what will be a quite unique experience for guests.
Millions have been spent on creating a simply jaw-dropping looking facility, but the thing which excites me most is the quality and standard of service all our guests will encounter once they arrive at Rockliffe Hall.
The site, located in the picturesque village of Hurworth, near Darlington, consists of a classic 18th century country hall which, having stood empty for several years, has been painstakingly restored to its former glories. It has been supplemented with luxurious and contemporary touches.
