Located just one mile from the A1 but surrounded by open countryside, close to the protective arms of the Angel of the North. The family run inn takes its name from the Bowes Incline Railway & Museum located close by. Bedrooms are of a good size and very well appointed with modern en suites. The large bar and restaurant offers good food chosen from the large blackboards. The hands on team are friendly and welcoming making this inn a perfect base to tour the North East.
