Hot Tub Cottage

Stately stay at a grand Georgian pile with spa on the outskirts of Durham in the Tees Valley - full English breakfast, a bottle of prosecco and optional dinner included

Playing a harmonious host to urbanites seeking respite in the North East, this hideaway is set in 150 acres of parkland on the outskirts of Durham in the Tees Valley. Built for the Third Marquess of Londonderry in 1846, it’s all lashings of Georgian glamour; think huge Corinthian portico, Spanish mahogany, French and Italian marble, exquisite gardens filled with over three thousand roses, and a fabulous statue gallery with a stained-glass dome.

On the accommodation front, there are 19 individually-styled guest rooms and suites as well as three cottages - all of which come with elegant décor, authentic and repro furnishings, warm colour hues, patterned wallpapers, and all the home-from-home comforts you’ll need during your stay.

Relaxed days can be spent blissing out in the lakeside spa, sipping cocktails on the terrace, stocking up on artisan cheeses in the Farm Shop & Café, and settling down for afternoon tea. Equally worthwhile is dining at The Wellington - the hotel’s two AA Rosette signature restaurant that’s renowned for its à la carte and brasserie menus that showcase sophisticated British fare.


Accredited in Visit England's Attraction Quality Scheme, The Gardens at the hotel draw visitors from all over. Meander through the vibrant shrubs, pass graceful water features, and admire a fascinating selection of over 3000 David Austin roses.
