About the location


Spennymoor 1.5 miles; Durham 4.7 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 21.7 miles.

Resting approximately five miles away from the city of Durham is the quiet village of Tudhoe. Situated just outside Spennymoor, this tranquil village was the formally the centre of a network of roads but is now a peaceful backwater with a green and a cul-de-sac that runs to the River Wear. The village was renowned in previous years for its mining history at Tudhoe Colliery, but is now home to a handful of shops, two pubs and a restaurant. Nearby, the town of Spennymoor offers plenty of attractions for all ages and abilities such as the Spennymoor Town Hall Art Gallery and The Axe House. The city of Durham is within easy reach and home to the magnificent Durham Cathedral, a popular attraction amongst tourists, as well an abundance of cafés and restaurants. The picturesque countryside surrounding Tudhoe also offers ample walking and cycling routes through Tudhoe Pinewood and the Cow Plantation nature reserve. This endearing village makes a wonderful base for exploring the County of Durham and beyond.
