Hotel, which is often referred to as the regions best known country hotels has
changed hands. The previous owners, Chris and Alison Davy have sold the
property to the owners of Headlam Hall, the Robinson family. Chris and Alison
have had a very successful 23 years at the Rose and Crown but say their
retirement is beckoning.
Robinson and his wife Ann have owned the four star Headlam Hall since 1978.
Thomas Robinson expresses his delight and explains the reasons behind the move:
