Why We Love This Hotel

  • Country house hotel, a short drive from Durham, with easy access to the motorway
  • There's a golf course on site, offering 27 holes (a further 18 will open later in 2014)
  • The AA-Rosette Rib Room's specialty: local, grass-fed Hereford beef
  • There's live piano music accompanying meals in the carvery


Ramside Hall Hotel & Golf Club is a country estate-turned-hotel, with a popular steak house restaurant and a 27-hole golf course on site. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the village of Carrville (just to the east of Durham) and is close to the A1(M) motorway. In spite of this, the location is surprisingly quiet. As the AA Hotel Guide says, it "combines the best of both worlds -- convenience and tranquillity".

The Bowes Museum’s art collection, which includes works by Goya and Canaletto (open 10am-5pm, daily), is just under an hour away, and the ruins of Barnard Castle, which was a favourite of King Richard III. It's 20 minutes' drive from Beamish, an open-air living museum that’s a great hit with kids.

Awarded an AA Rosette in 2013, the Rib Room restaurant is open daily for lunch (12-2pm) and dinner (6-10pm), and specialises in local, grass-fed Hereford beef (the hotel’s owner has even started rearing his own cattle). There’s also a carvery restaurant (open 7am-10pm) with accompanying piano music (Tuesday-Thursday) and live singing (Friday-Saturday). Afternoon tea is served by the fireplace in the double-height lounge from midday until 6pm (Monday-Saturday). Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout.

The hotel currently offers 27 holes of golf, laid out in three loops (Princes, Bishops and Cathedral), and there’s also a 16-bay floodlit driving range. An additional 18-hole golf course is due to open later in 2014 and a brand-new spa is under construction, with a proposed opening date of 2015.

Rooms vary in style across all room types and most were refurbished in 2013. Some have contemporary furniture with tartan carpets, while others are more traditional with floral drapes and antique-style mirrors and bedheads. Bathrooms have all been fully updated and feature showers over bathtubs or free-standing baths. Unusually, the in-room tea- and coffee-making facilities come with fresh milk. Dogs are permitted in a limited range of ground-floor room (on request).
