Around and About

Romaldkirk has to be one of the most delightful villages in Teesdale. It has all the main ingredients for a typical "chocolate-box" village with its greens, old stone built cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs, one an AA Pub of the Year for England winner in 2003. Romaldkirk is surrounded by the outstanding Dales countryside and this makes the village an excellent base for walking and for touring around the Northern and Yorkshire Dales. There are fantastic fell, flat and river walks and cycle rides all from the doorstep and if you want to journey further afield then the Northern Lakes and the cities of Durham and Newcastle are an easy drive. Just a 10 minute drive away is the historic market town of Barnard Castle with many cultural and historical attractions all under the protective watch of Bernard de Balliol's stunning 12th Century castle.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
