Explore Hotel

A warm North East country house welcome.

Occupying a glorious private estate on the outskirts of Durham, Hallgarth The Manor House radiates with traditional charm and character.
While it still retains many of its original 16th-century features, it has been lovingly refurbished to a high standard with plenty of modern touches, and the elegance of the restaurant not to mention top-notch cuisine makes it a standout dining destination.
Each of our 24 bedrooms is tastefully decorated, from our cosy doubles to the indulgent Sanctuary Suite. All come with a Nespresso machine, smart TV and free WiFi. You'll also have a spectacular view of either the adjoining countryside or gardens surrounding the hotel.
We're less than 5 miles from Durham, one of the most beautiful cities in Great Britain, so there's no shortage of historic sights to see during your stay. Don't miss the magnificent Durham Cathedral and splendid botanic garden at Durham University. A 20-minute drive away is the amazing Beamish living museum.

Dining and Bars

Chef Tomas Knott


Garden Room Restaurant

We're firm believers in making the very most of local produce and seasonal flavours to give you a mouth-watering dining experience. That's why our restaurant has rightly gained a reputation for excellence over the years.

The period feel of it, alongside the contemporary dcor, has created a relaxing and luxurious dining environment where you can enjoy a filling breakfast in the morning and hearty dinner in the evening. Homemade chicken and mushroom pie and slow roasted pork belly are among the sort of comforting delights you can expect here - all with a twist of flair added by our skilled chef.
On Sundays we put on a delicious carvery, which is hugely popular with our guests - and a great reason to book a weekend stay.
The view isn't bad either... savour your meal while looking out over our beautiful gardens, complete with ancient church font and 17th-century sundial.

The Tavern

Make yourself right at home in our comfortable beamed ceiling Tavern Bar here at Hallgarth The Manor House. Whatever your preference, we'll keep you topped up with our great choice of traditional ales, fine wines, gins, cocktails and hot beverages.
We also serve a selection of delicious meals and light bites. Choose from sandwiches served with salad and fries, a juicy steak fresh from the grill or a handcrafted stone-baked pizza.
In the summer months, you can bask in the sunshine and while away the hours with family, friends or colleagues in our lovely renovated Tavern courtyard.
