The path less travelled....

The Rose & Crown is privately owned by the Robinson family who have farmed in Teesdale for four generations and also own and operate Headlam Hall Country Hotel & Spa which is located 15 miles down the dale from Romaldkirk.

Thomas Robinson and particularly his wife, Cheryl (photo above), take an active role in the day-to-day running of the Rose & Crown along with a great team of predominantly local staff who all play a key role in the high quality yet relaxed style of service offered.

Since purchasing the Rose & Crown in late 2012 there has been continual investment in both the front house and back house facilities with an emphasis on using local suppliers and trades. The style of interior improvements aims to balance the traditional feel of a country inn with contemporary touches but above all else the goal is to provide a place that customers find comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable.
