Eggleston Hall is the perfect location for short stay family holidays and celebrations. It’s ideal for weekend breaks, a gathering of friends, a girls get together, or a Pennine walking holiday. We suggest travelling by car. This will allow you to take advantage of the endless things to do in North Yorkshire and County Durham. Otherwise simply enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in this rural idyll.
The Hall sits its own grounds overlooking the Tees. The river runs below the house. There are wonderful moorland views over the Durham fells beyond. Guests can also take advantage of the landscaped gardens, woodland and riverside walks. Teesdale is relatively undiscovered and unspoilt!
