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