Queens Apartments

A stone-built, former public house dating back to the 1800s, The Queens Apartments have been converted into three stunning, self-catering apartments. These three tastefully-appointed apartments are ideally situated in the centre of the bustling village of Stanhope in Weardale. Exuding luxury throughout, each apartment has been individually styled to provide all the comforts you could possibly want from your Durham holiday. All have contemporary kitchens with granite worktops and high-gloss units, the beautifully-fitted bathrooms twinkle temptingly and the living areas all have sumptuous sofas to melt into after a delicious home-cooked meal. After a long day out walking or cycling, your lavishly furnished bedrooms await you with pillow soft beds, fresh linen and fluffy throws. The penthouse apartment has its own private balcony whilst all guests share a rear patio with furniture and a beautiful arched passageway. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed from these apartments, with the Weardale Way passing through the town, or why not take a wander along the high street to the stepping stones and cross the River Wear, from there a rather challenging incline will take you to the surrounding moorland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the second largest in England and Wales, boasting great scenery and wildlife? A short drive will take you to Barnard Castle, Durham, Corbridge, The Bowes Museum, High Force and Rokeby Hall, all easily reached for a day’s outing. With so much to see and do in the area, these apartments are the perfect place for friends and family to get together for a celebration or a countryside break.
