GUEST EXPERIENCES

Here are a few local highlights to take in during your stay.

North Yorkshire Moors
YO21 2NB

Moor. Coast. Forest. Dale. The North York Moors is a special place, forged by nature, shaped over generations – where peace and beauty rub shoulders with a rich history and a warm welcome.

High Force Waterfall
DL12 0XH

High force is one of the most impressive waterfalls in England. The River Tees has been plunging into this gorge for thousands of years but the rocks it reveals are far more ancient – with origins dating back over 300 million years!

Whitby
YO21 1DN

From the atmospheric Abbey towering over wining cobbled streets to the windswept beach and working harbour, Whitby is not your traditional coastal town. After all, it is the home of Dracula!

Roseberry Topping
TS9 6QR

Roseberry Topping is an unusual landmark on the otherwise fairly level skyline of the North York Moors. A hard sandstone cap has protected the underlying soft shales and clays so while the surrounding area was worn away by ice, wind and rain, the topping survived.

MUSEUMS & HERITAGE

Those interested in history and beautiful buildings need look no further than these beauties!

The Bowes Museum
DH12 8NP

The Bowes Museum is a Grade 1 listed French-style chateau in the picturesque market town of Barnard Castle and is one of the most important museums outside of London, housing significant collections, including paintings by El Greco and Goya.

Hadrian’s Wall
CA8 7DD

A World Heritage Site since 1987, Hadrian’s Wall is an astounding feat of engineering. It’s the best known and the best preserved frontier of the Roman Empire. When Hadrian’s men set out to construct it they were faced with a relentlessly challenging and variable landscape to conquer. Not the fierce torrents of fast rivers, the hard rock of the Whin Sill, nor mile upon mile of rolling hills would defeat them.

Durham Cathedral & Castle
DH1 3EH

A cultural World Heritage Site, Durham Cathedral was built between the late 11th and early 12th century to house the bodies of St. Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede. The Cathedral lies within the precinct of Durham Castle, first constructed in the late eleventh century under the orders of William the Conqueror.

Beamish Museum
DH9 0RG

Beamish Museum is a living, working museum that uses its collections to connect with people from all walks of life and tells the story of everyday life in the North East of England throughout history.
