While traditional hotels are great, and you'll find plenty in Durham and the surrounding areas, apartment hotels offer some added benefits, and are particularly good if you're travelling with a large group. Apartments hotels aren't as common as traditional hotels, but you'll find a few located around County Durham, particularly in Stockton-on-Tees, which is just outside of Middlesbrough.
Enjoy a Group or Family Holiday from Durham Apartment Hotels
County Durham is a great place for a group or family holiday, with a wide array of exciting tourist attractions, some beautiful countryside and more than its fair share of historic landmarks - particularly in the city of Durham itself, which is home to some of the finest examples of Norman architecture in Europe, notably the magnificent Durham Cathedral. Whether it's a family day out in Hartlepool, exploring the city's long maritime heritage and stepping aboard the HMS Trincomalee - a maritime must-sea - or you're hopping on your bike to explore the Durham Dales, County Durham has lots to keep your family or large group busy for a day or two!
The County Durham countryside is definitely worth exploring, whether by bicycle, on foot or by horse. There lots of stunning natural landmarks across the region, particularly within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as High Force and Low Force Waterfalls. If you're planning on visiting any of these great places, you might consider making an apartment hotel as your base of operations. Apartment hotels are generally more spacious than hotel rooms, with additional conveniences like living rooms, kitchens and free WiFi, and their large size makes them suitable for families who wish to share accommodation.
