Hunwick is a quiet village with two traditional country pub/restaurants and a welcoming community, and lies just 3 miles from the market town of Bishop Auckland. Just outside the village is a popular ice cream parlour which can be reached in about a 15 minutes’ walk. With plenty of shops, cafés and supermarkets, Bishop Auckland has plenty to offer and is also home to the extremely popular Kynren show, which takes place every year from June to September.
This amazing production showcases the epic history of Britain and includes a cast of over 1000 volunteers, a breathtaking fireworks display and a huge set where the outdoor show takes place. Perfect for guests wanting to enjoy the event, Cross Row Cottage is just a few minutes’ drive away and is the ideal base for a small family or couple wanting to book ahead.
Also perfect for walkers and cyclists, there are many footpaths and walks that lead from the village and out into the county. Guests will find a variety of places to visit including Beamish (the open-air museum), the city of Durham, The National Railway Museum Shildon, Weardale, Richmond, Barnard Castle, Bowes Museum and Hall Hill Farm. Hamsterley Forest will be a popular destination for guests who enjoy cycling and is only a little over 7 miles away.
With numerous cycle paths and trails set across 2000 hectares of woodland and countryside, guests will find plenty of activities to explore and enjoy. The Gruffalo walking trail is always popular with families and the more challenging walks are great for guests with plenty of energy. There are many picnic tables and quiet spots too for a relaxing stop along the way.
Guests wanting to visit friends and family based at Durham University will be able to reach the campuses and halls within an easy 15-minute drive too making Cross Row Cottage a great place to book for guests wanting to enjoy graduation ceremonies and taster weeks there. Also a lovely place to enjoy a day out at any time of year, this cathedral city is often thriving with outdoor events including the Durham City Jazz Festival, the Durham Miners’ Gala, a book week and the fabulous Lumiere event that takes place every two years in the month of November.
