GO Accomodation in Durham

Accommodation in Durham From the historic Durham Castle to a quaint miner’s cottage, there is more choice than ever these days when it comes to finding a place to stay in Durham.

If you’re planning on splashing out during your break then there are plenty of luxury hotels to choose from in and around the city centre.

One of the most stylish hotels in Durham is the four star Ramside Hall Classic Hotel and Golf Club [map], which is set in 220 acres of parkland with a 27-hole championship golf course. Each of the 80 en suite bedrooms are individually decorated and furnished, while there is also a number of premier and feature bedrooms that have the added luxury of a whirlpool bath and large bathrooms.

For a luxury and country break rolled into one, Durham’s beautiful surrounding countryside is well worth a look and there is a good selection of hotels to choose from.

Less than seven miles from the city centre you’ll find Whitworth Hall Country Park Hotel [map], a Grade II listed hotel, once home to famous Durham MP Bonnie Bobby Shafto. It is set within 73 acres of parkland with resident red and fallow deer, an ornamental lake and historic gardens.

In the little town of Sedgefield is Hardwick Hall Hotel [map], which was built during the 18th century and is set within the grounds of the popular Hardwick Hall Country Park.

Those looking for more homely accommodation should check out the wealth of B&Bs and guesthouses in the city, including Durham Castle [map], where you can stay in a stateroom fit for a king and eat breakfast in the Great Hall.

Another of Durham’s most well known bed and breakfast’s is the Three Horseshoes Inn [map], a comfortable traditional country inn with a well stocked cellar, good food and top class accommodation.

As far as guest houses go, the Castle View Guest House [map] on Crossgate is a one of the best. It’s a charming 18th century house situated on a cobbled street.

If you would prefer to stay just outside the city centre then why not try Triermayne [map], a small house overlooking the Browney Valley.

There is also a good choice of budget accommodation for those visitors who are saving their pennies. Among the best money saving places to stay are Durham University’s halls of residence.

Durham also has its own Youth Hostel Association hostel [map] situated in St Chad’s College at the university. Although it is only open during the Christmas and summer holidays, it provides comfortable, clean bed and breakfast accommodation for backpackers.

Finally, for self-catering accommodation you can opt for anything from a beautiful little cottage to a grand first floor apartment.

The Coach House [map] on Sidegate is a luxurious apartment set in the beautiful surroundings of Crook Hall and Gardens in the city centre, while four miles out of Durham from is the Miner's Cottage [map] in the scenic village of Tudhoe.
