Surrounded by parkland in a curve of the River Tees, Rockliffe Hall promises peace, space and time to unwind. The 18th-century Hall and grounds have been carefully restored and extended to create a luxury hotel, spa and golf course; a 21st-century, country retreat.

Set in the quiet County Durham countryside, between the villages of Croft and Hurworth-on-Tees, Rockliffe’s location is perfect for discovering the treasures of Durham City, the drama of the north-east coastline and the rugged beauty of the North York Moors. Or, with world-class leisure facilities at your fingertips, you could just forget the outside world, treat Rockliffe as your home, and let us look after you.

A luxury, country-house style hotel with state-of-the-art spa, world-class golf course and a wide range of dining options, Rockliffe Hall is a memorable destination whether for a romantic break, special celebration, wedding day or business meeting.

Once a private home, the Hall has been skillfully converted to offer 21st-century luxury without losing the grandeur of its heritage. Rooms are large, light and welcoming, and mix contemporary furnishings with original features: stained glass windows, marble pillars, and beautifully ornate ceilings. Newer rooms reflect the original Hall in their size and elegance. The choices for dining, meeting, or celebrating range from the Victorian glass-roofed Orangery to the spectacular Rockliffe Suite and Lounge.

Windows overlook the golf course, and gardens, the whole 375-acre estate dotted with rare and exotic trees collected by the Hall’s former owners, the Backhouse family, the renowned inernational botanists.

Whether you want to relax or be active, celebrate or focus on business, we offer you the space, peace and privacy to do it your way. Our guests genuinely are ‘our guests’.

‘Genuine warmth, genuine hospitality’
