BEST WESTERN Whitworth Hall is superbly situated for most sporting events in the area including golf, fishing, walking. We offer specialised breaks for golfers or the perfect venue for ladies who want to come along and be pampered. (Spa facilities are not available at the hotel, however we can organise treatments for  you at a local Spa)

We are ideally based in the North East of England, close to the Wear Valley, Hamsterley Forest, Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines and Northumberland.

The Hotel is also near to Durham Riverside Cricket Club - the host of the 2007 England v West Indies test, The Stadium of Light - the home of Sunderland Football Club, St James Park - the home of Newcastle United.


Whitworth Hall can offer golfers reduced green fees at both Brancepeth Castle Golf Club or Bishop Auckland Golf Club.  We can offer superb deals for golfers who wish to stay at the hotel and play several of the local courses - speak to our experienced reception team for further details.


Whitworth Hall is an excellent base for walking.  There are wonderful walks nearby either in Weardale or Teesdale.  Why not walk along the famous Hadrians Wall. 


Here at Whitworth Hall we can offer fishing in our well stocked lake as well as being an excellent base for local fly and river fishing throughout the northeast. Day permit required for non-sleeping or corporate guests
