Best Western Whitworth Hall Country Park Hotel really makes the grade. Grade II in fact, with its listed country house building set in acres of stunning historic grounds...alongside two herds of deer! Now a beautifully furnished hotel with 29 exquisite double bedrooms, restaurant, lounge bar, brassiere and conservatory, our home-from-home plays host to new visitors and return guests alike. A huge part of our appeal is the elegant formal garden and ornamental lake with swans, but only 10 minutes from Durham City, the nearby attractions of the North East are equally tempting! Beamish Open Air Museum lets you live the life of a bygone era 17 miles away, while the Metro Centre will bring you right back into the 21st Century with the latest fashions and biggest names! Enjoy your stay.
