Welcome to the Railway Inn

A warm welcome awaits you from Rachel and Helen who took over The Railway Inn in at the end of July 2015. Situated on the edge of Acklington village, located only 4 miles from the A1. Northumberland is famous for its coastline and historical landmarks including its wonderful castles which are only a short journey.

Set in 2 acres of pleasant grounds with its abundance of trees and shrubs, we have 3 self-catering holiday cottages adjacent to the inn, as well as a 22 pitch touring caravan site, all with electric hook up, toilet and shower block, and small park.

The Railway Inn History

The inn has an interesting background, and started off as a two up, two down farmhouse in the mid 1800s when the enterprising farmer decided to add some more rooms and take in guests. It actually became a “hotel” in the 1890s with the landlords staying for many years before moving on. From 1923 to 1954 The Webb brothers ran the pub, one of the brothers training racehorses on the site. Photographs of some of his winners can be seen on the lounge walls of the pub today. Before, during and after the Second World War there was an R.A.F site two miles up the road and many of the officers, including Princess Margaret’s first love, Peter Townsend, visited the pub regularly. In fact, there is a Townsend Court in Acklington village. We have photographs of the R.A.F. camp on the walls of the pub.

3rd Monday of each month is ‘Northumbrian Music Night’, a free for all for budding musicians to sharpen up their strings, whistles or vocal chords!

Motorbikes welcome and dogs (in bar only)

See you soon,

Rachel and Helen.
