Welcome to Dowfold House Bed & Breakfast
Jill & Rupert Richardson (not to mention our dog and two cats...) look forward to welcoming you to this lovely, comfortable Victorian house with its delightful gardens. Winners of the Bed & Breakfast of the Year, at the North East Tourism Awards 2011, we strive for the highest quality at all times. As a small, high-quality bed and breakfast establishment, we aim to provide a comfortable, welcoming - and peaceful - home for you to enjoy; and we do GREAT breakfasts! - full of local produce.
As a recent, regular, guest put it: “Jill & Rupert at Dowfold House Bed & Breakfast are a class act. They offer bed and breakfasting in grand style, but somehow make it friendly and intimate.”
Our rooms are comfortable and well-equipped, all with ensuite facilities, while our home & gardens offer plenty of opportunity for relaxation - or wickedly competitive croquet! Guests love it here. We're proud of Dowfold House Bed & Breakfast's green credentials, but intensely aware we need to do more. "Green, but without the hair shirt" is our motto. You can find prices and booking information HERE.
Dowfold House Bed & Breakfast is in a quiet location overlooking Crook, with stunning views over Weardale as far as the North Pennines. We welcome business visitors, tourers, cyclists, walkers, dogs, horses [NEW] and children. People just keep coming back!
Crook is an ideal, peaceful, place to stay when visiting the North East of England. The City of Durham is a 20 minute drive away and our Bed & Breakfast accommodation is close to the A68, a major route to and from Scotland.
Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and the Durham Coast are all within easy reach of Dowfold House Bed & Breakfast's accommodation, while Crook acts as a gateway to the Durham Dales (Weardale, Teesdale) and the North Pennines.
