About The House

We can’t expect you to stay without telling you a little bit about this beautiful old house.

We’re not like all the other hotels in Durham

Once upon a time, around 1838 The Earl of Durham built a hunting lodge on his estate in an amazing location. Close to Durham, Sunderland and the North East coastline.

He shared this lodge with his many important visitors, which has inspired us to do the same.

We have renovated this beautiful Georgian hunting lodge and created The Hideaway one of the newest, luxury hotels in durham. The Hideaway is a secluded haven removed from the real world but close enough to get there… if you want to.

All guests have use of the stunning private lounge with magnificent open fireplace and large Georgian windows overlooking the secret gardens. The morning/sun room provides a tranquil retreat and total relaxation.

Breakfast is served in the dining room which can only be described as “intriguing” (thank you Richard!) This room takes you back in time and is the heart of the lodge.

Come and find The Hideaway, we look forward to meeting you and promise you it will be worth it…


Don’t just take our word.
Make up your own mind.
Come and stay…
