Cutest InnThe Inn was great and so easy to check in. Staff was so friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. Only caveat was my husband hit his head 3 times going into the bathroom because the entrance is really low. He is 5'10" so not crazy tall, but a nice cushion up there would be appreciated.

Explore the Region's History from Durham Historic Hotels

County Durham has a long history, with each of its major settlements possessing particular historic flavour. Durham, the county town, has two of the most famous Norman structures in Europe - Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral - as well as a fascinating museum. In Hartlepool, by contrast, you'll find many museums and landmarks dedicated to a long and important maritime heritage - notably the HMS Trincomalee and the Museum of Hartlepool. Along Hartlepool marina you'll also find a statue of a monkey, which relates to a rather peculiar tale from the Napoleonic Wars (you can discover what that is yourself!) If history is your thing, you'll find lots of great historic and period hotels and guesthouses in County Durham - from the quaint to the magnificent, something for all tastes and budgets.

Historic Hotels in County Durham

Durham city is a great place to say if you're keen to explore the region's history, with plenty of top historic hotels to choose from. The Lambton Hounds Inn, located in the historic district of the city, is a fine example. This 250-year old former coaching inn comprises eight rooms and all modern conveniences, which are, of course, incidental to the stunning period décor and architecture. For something a little grander, you might consider the four-star Best Western Beamish Hall Country House Hotel, set in 24 acres of woodland and well placed for the region's top tourist attractions, such as Beamish Adventure Park and Beamish Open Air Museum. Whether it's a business or family holiday, a historic hotel offers guests a little extra magic.
