Rothley Lakehouse will be throwing its doors open this Halloween for a board game inspired escape room experience - with the Morpeth based location one of only three selected for the event.

Hasbro, the makers of Cluedo Escape: Treachery at Tudor Mansion, picked the National Trust site as one of three idyllic locations to mark the launch of the new board game.

Cluedo Escape offers a free of charge stay at Rothley Lakehouse and the location is equipped with the new boardgame, as well as a selection of luxury Cluedo-themed props to create the ultimate murder mystery stay.

Only three lucky groups will be able to experience the “ultimate murder mystery stay” and tap into their inner Colonel Mustard to solve the mysteries found in the new Cluedo game.

Nicola Fox-Haggarty, Commercial Director at Hasbro UK and Ireland, commented: “Cluedo: Treachery at Tudor Mansion combines the best aspects of the classic murder mystery with the current trend for collaborative escape room inspired entertainment to create our most immersive whodunnit to date.”

“We want people around the UK to experience it to its fullest this Halloween in locations that incarnate Mr Black’s famous country retreat.”
