The Bell Guest House is located in Horden, just a few minutes from the sea. The house gets its name from the previous owner Henry Bell who purchased the property back in 1925. It has recently been refurbished but kept plenty of its charm and character. Bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable, while the coach bar and lounge are warm and welcoming. The Bell Guest House is ideally located for Hartlepool, Sunderland, Newcastle and Durham.
