In the heart of beautiful Teesdale, this 17th-century former coaching house, with connections to Charles Dickens, is full of character and is a popular meeting place. The bar area has two amazing Dickens murals – one was created in 2012 to commemorate Dickens' 200th birthday. The hotel prides itself on its traditional values which is very apparent in the quality of its service, locally-sourced food and individually styled rooms. Guests can enjoy pampering and treatments in the adjoining spa.
