Historic B&B’s in County Durham

Visitors to County Durham normally head straight for Durham City. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city boasts a wealth of university colleges, a stunning Norman castle and of course, made famous to fans of the Harry Potter films, the magnificent Durham Cathedral. But there is so much more to explore in this fine county including the unspoilt Durham Dales and one of England’s biggest waterfalls.

And after you have parked your quidditch stick for the day, settle back and relax in one of our handpicked bed and breakfasts. Choose to spend the night in an imposing 18th century mansion house disguised as medieval castle, or perhaps dine in a country inn that has served English and French Prime Ministers as well as American Presidents. We present below the very best guest accommodation that County Durham has to offer.
