Walworth Castle Hotel, is not exactly in anywhere but in open countryside a few miles from Newton Aycliffe and Darlington and the A1 and in my opinion well worth the drive, The hotel is a statement building, it says I am a castle.

Before I go any further I must say the food there is excellent, the best quality I've had in a long time and very generous proportions....and the Staff are very good too. However... The room we had was in the annexe, very small and a bit ragged around the edges. The bath panel was loose, the grouting around the bath... More

Out on lovely country and with spacious public rooms. Nice breakfast served by bustling young staff. The farmers bar has good 'pub food' but don't expect gourmet; it's more farmer's portions style. The garden is rather disappointing; mown grass and a pond by the wood surrounded by noxious or invasive weeds. Rooms are clean and the beds comfy but the... More
