Welcome to the Rose and Crown at Romaldkirk, a quintessentially English village near Barnard Castle in glorious Teesdale. As Fiona Duncan of the Sunday Telegraph writes, “Everything about this place is perfect.” The best of hotels Durham.
Step inside and you will see the hallway is festooned with awards - testimony to the high standards of hospitality that make the Rose and Crown first choice when staying in Barnard Castle and one of the foremost hotels in the Durham Dales.
A popular haunt for local diners from Barnard Castle and the surrounding villages, food is of the essence with locally sourced produce, freshly cooked and beautifully presented, with a choice of dining in either the restaurant or less formally in the brasserie. Drinks can be enjoyed in the cosy bar with its open log fire or on warm days outside overlooking the village green. There is a beautifully furnished and cosy lounge for coffees or teas or just relaxing with a good book.
All the rooms are stylishly furnished under the careful supervision of Ali Davy, superbly comfortable and well equipped with those little touches that make a guest’s stay special – Bose sound systems, glossy magazines, Come Rain or Shine (Chris and Ali’s personal guide to the highlights of Barnard Castle, County Durham and beyond), luxury toiletries and big fluffy towels.
Throughout the historic building contemporary styling combines with original features to create a superbly comfortable and welcoming place to stay – without a doubt a very special gem and a perfect base for exploring Barnard Castle and Teesdale. A visit to the amazing Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle is a must. Or, of course, you can simply sit back, relax by a warming fire and do nothing at all!
