In County Durham you can enjoy a unique vacation, and, with so much available to do, every day in this beautiful part of the country can be spent doing something different. One day you might be hiking along the Durham Heritage Coastline, and the other you may be discovering Hartlepool's fascinating maritime heritage. If unique vacations are your thing, you might shy away from chain establishments, preferring instead to stay at one of the many top independent hotels in Durham and the surrounding area, something for all tastes and budgets.
The thing about independent hotels is that they're all unique - with a charming character and approach to hospitality all of their own.
