Wooden beams and a cosy open fire make this former 17th century inn a comfortable place to stay for an activity break or for visits to nearby Newcastle and Durham. Edmundbyers is popular accommodation for walking holidays, with much to explore amongst this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The area also features a section of the Sea-to-Sea cycle route. Derwent Reservoir attracts trout anglers and watersports fans or for a day out try Beamish outdoor museum and Hadrian’s Wall – both are nearby.
