Explore County Durham from this apartment, with Barnard Castle, Durham and Newcastle all within easy reach.

Perfectly situated in the pretty Anglo-Saxon village of Witton-le-Wear, and commanding fabulous views across County Durham, the Dales and beyond, Witton Hall really is the perfect location for guests wishing to treat themselves to a holiday in magnificent surroundings. Witton Hall is one of the finest country houses to have ever been built in the north of England during the 20th century, and was once listed in The Times as one of the top 100 houses in the country. Detached South Lodge (ref MWC), located at the gates of Witton Hall, once served as the gate house and has its own hot tub and garden area. Suite Two (ref MWE), Suite Three (ref MWD) and Suite Four (ref MWF) are all apartments which are situated directly behind Witton Hall and surrounded by the grounds, gardens and a shared hot tub. Suite Four (ref MWF) is the largest of the properties and occupies a prime position within the grounds, with fabulous views over the garden, grounds and faraway hills and dales.
Constructed from the finest sandstone, Witton Hall itself features classic Georgian elements including stone pillars, pediments, architraves, friezes and cornices. There are plenty of leisure facilities within the Hall, available from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 9am to 5pm, which can be booked for use via the owner (only available by prior agreement), including a gymnasium with weights and cardio vascular equipment and a sauna. The gymnasium looks out on to a dance floor with a sparkling ceiling consisting of hundreds of multi-coloured lights that sparkle and dazzle like the night sky. Guests can also find a heated swimming pool with wave system and wet bar. On a mezzanine level above the gymnasium, and overlooking the pool and dance floor, there is a games room with large screen TV, sound system and a refreshments area, which once again can be privately booked via the owner and are available between the hours of 9am to 5pm. Surrounding the Hall and leisure complex, there are 2½ acres of landscaped grounds which are home to a croquet lawn, tennis courts with outdoor barbecue and seating area, shared hot tub and also beauty parlour facilities where guests can book ahead and make an appointment for a professional sports or Thai massage. Guests may book and make use of a private chef, concierge service, airport pick up and beauty treatments by arrangement.
For guests wanting to relax, unwind and really treat themselves, then there is no reason at all to even leave the grounds during their stay, but for those who wish to explore the local area and really get to know County Durham, the Durham Dales and Weardale Valley, then this is the perfect location from which to do so. Witton-le-Wear is an attractive, predominantly Victorian village and is situated on the northern banks of the River Wear. There are two pubs within walking distance of Witton Hall and also two churches, one of which dates back to Norman times. Perfect for walkers, cyclists and people who like to explore, there are numerous walks and public footpaths that cross directly through the village and through some of the most picturesque countryside that the county has to offer. There is also the opportunity to enjoy salmon and trout fishing at the nearby Witton Castle Lakes.
Only a three mile walk away, visit the popular Hamsterley Forest which is a 2000-hectare site of walking trails, cycle trails and orienteering. The thriving market town of Barnard Castle is a 15-mile drive away and is often popular with visitors wanting to explore the weekly farmer’s market or enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants, pubs and local inns. Visit the historic city of Durham, 15 miles, a glorious city with fantastic heritage. Durham has many popular tourist attractions that include the Lumiere Festival, jazz festival, book festival, arts week, theatre, castle and cathedral. There is...
