If we had to choose one word to sum up why people are choosing Plawsworth Hall cottages over traditional hotels…that word would be freedom.
With hotels you get a room, with us you get a home. A key to your own front door with the freedom to come and go as you please. Have some friends over for drinks, relax in front of the TV, cook a meal or order a takeaway. The choice is entirely yours.

Imagine your home in the middle of beautiful Durham countryside. You look out of the window and see green fields and blue sky, the silence disturbed only by the birds singing. You step-out into a gorgeous private courtyard, perfect for lazy days, alfresco dining and having fun with the kids. And there’s an abundance of car parking space too.

There are no “hidden extras” like drinks from the mini-bar or telephone charges and the cost is much less than most hotels. And, unlike most holiday homes, we’re VAT registered which makes us even more competitive for companies that are able to reclaim VAT. Combine the luxury and comfort of a top hotel with the freedom and independence of home and you have it – Plawsworth Hall cottages.



To avoid disappointment we advise that you book your stay with us early. To minimise unoccupied nights, we usually operate with Mondays and Fridays as the available arrival and departure dates. Other dates may be available however the rates will vary.

Situated in the quiet, award winning village of Plawsworth and surrounded by the magnificent Durham countryside Plawsworth Hall cottages provide a comfortable, home from home, rural retreat and a great opportunity to get away from it all. Only 3 miles from the historic city of Durham with its world famous cathedral you’ll find numerous museums and galleries, ancient castles and historic houses. County Durham’s beautiful coast and countryside with its country parks and riverside walks are legendary while Durham’s central location makes the whole north east so accessible.

With its fascinating blend of Christian, social and industrial heritage along with some of England’s most beautiful and unspoilt landscape, County Durham is the perfect place for a relaxing countryside break. It’s also an excellent touring base with Hadrian’s Wall, Lindisfarne and the Northumberland coast, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District in close proximity.

There is a bus stop 350 yards away with regular services to Darlington, Durham , Chester-le-Street and Newcastle. Durham Railway Station is within easy reach by bus. Regular services operate to York (40 mins) Edinburgh (1hr 40mins). The Theatre Royal (20mins) is one of only nine Grade I Listed theatres in England and is regarded by many as the UK’s finest theatre building. It’s the regional home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, Opera North and Rambert Dance Company. The iconic curves of the Sage on Newcastle/Gateshead’s Quayside (15mins) were designed by Sir Norman Foster and host the acclaimed Northern Sinfonia as well as world class musical events from jazz to folk.

At Sunderland Empire (20mins) you can see smash hit West End musicals such as Starlight Express, Miss Saigon and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to opera and ballet; cutting-edge comedy to very latest kids shows. There’s lots to see from the Angel of the North to Alnwick Castle, Hadrian’s Wall to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. This is an area of outstanding beauty, one that you will never forget.
