5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 April 

I recently stayed at The Greenhead Country House Hotel near Crook in County Durham. The hotel is run by Ann and Paul who are a lovely friendly couple who made me feel extremely welcome. The hotel itself is quintessentially traditionally English and it was a nice to stay somewhere with a homely feel rather than a hotel chain with no personal touch. Ann and Paul cook a great 'Full English' breakfast and they also offer a plethora of cereals for the more health conscious guest. The rooms have TV and WiFi access, and are warm and homely. The area is quiet and peaceful, but still within walking distance of a couple of pubs/restaurants. I had a great stay and I would recommend the Greenhead Country House to anyone who is visiting the area on business or courses. Regards, Jonathan

Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful hospitality shown to my wife Ann and son Kevin on their stay 19th-20th July 2013. They were very impressed with how they were treated and the overall cleanliness of your guest house. They will certainly stay again when they next return to the area. Many thanks.

“Luxury Hideaway”
We picked the Greenhead Hotel out of the blue when the need arose to stay overnight in the vicinity of Crook. If we had searched for a week I do not think we could have found any place nicer, more comfortable, well appointed and so quiet. The owners have renovated a truly beautiful property in excellent taste and in perfect harmony with it's history
The breakfast deserves a paragraph on it's own, perfectly cooked and served locally sourced ingredients, even what was denoted a "small" serving was enough to keep us going all day!
A perfect place to hideaway and visit the local attractions at your leisure
Room Tip: The twin bedded room on the ground floor has a huge picture window overlooking the cottage garden.
