Dowfold House is a lovely, comfortable Victorian house with delightful gardens at Crook, in Durham. 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 en suite 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.
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 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 holiday accommodation, while Crook acts as a gateway to the Durham Dales (Weardale, Teesdale) and the North Pennines.
We pride ourselves on the comfort and tranquillity of the rooms we offer, with quality linen, fluffy duvets and fluffier towels. They each have their own character, so one is bound to suit you.
