A bustling town with a variety of shops, Bishop Auckland has much to offer. The town has a good mix of restaurants, cafes, shops, pubs and historic buildings. Bishop Auckland Castle, Deer House and Park, is only a short walk away and offers events all year round, and is certainly worth a visit. The Town Hall boasts a 210 seater theatre, art gallery, library and café and is open all year round. The shows incorporate a full size lake with pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects, making it a true spectacle in every sense of the world!

Kynren, a spectacular open-air live show taking you on a journey through 2,000 years of history, is held every Summer and is less than a mile away. Known as the Gateway to Weardale and perfect for families, friends, walkers and cyclists, Bishop Auckland is surrounded by walking paths, cycle routes and trails that cross through the area, and into the heart of County Durham. Only a 15-minute drive away, guests will also be able to explore the popular area of Hamsterley Forest, which is a fabulous 2,000 hectare oasis alongside a sheltered valley. Guests really need a full day to explore and enjoy the forest, watch the wildlife, walk the Gruffalo Trail, and cycle along the woodland trails. It is also perfectly located for a day trip into the city of Durham, Barnard Castle, Staindrop, The Durham Dales, The Yorkshire Dales, Newcastle upon Tyne, and Gateshead for the Metrocentre. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Lovely spacious apartment . We were met by the owners who were very friendly and showed us around. The accommodation was spotless and well equipped with extra touches of fresh flowers and milk in the fridge. Car parking is not an issue as there are car parks very close and reasonable. We enjoyed our breakfast in the cafe below.

    My partner and friends had a really smashing weekend stay at The Old Assembley Rooms and I highly recommend it!. The apartment is spacious & immaculately clean,the beds are extremely comfortable and the sheets and towels etc are of a high quality. The extra touches that Lesley and Sam very kindly supplied included flowers in several rooms. red and white wine, toiletries, bread and milk!. They also allowed us to use two of their parking spaces. who could ask for more!! ( (The only thing I would change would be to add a shower room somewhere because two toilets between seven people was fine but one bathroom between seven people caused delays).

    If you want to explore the North East this apartment is a great base and value for money. It is large, spotless and comfortable. Just be prepared to drive for a special meal and clean eateries.

    Large flat which is centrally located. There is a large modern car park nearby which is reasonably priced and open 24hours. Very helpful and hospitable owners. There is a cafe below the flat perfect for breakfast.

    The flat is wonderful, large but welcoming with fresh flowers in rooms and handy boxes of tissues dotted about the rooms and so very very clean. Lesley and her husband Sam cannot do enough for you and are happy to help with any questions you may have. We all had an amazing time and would definitely stay again if visiting that area. Everyone slept well and the beds are very comfy. We could not fault it.
