The Blackwell Grange Hotel is set in nine acres of woodland between the historic city of Durham and the North York Moors National Park, described by Lonely Planet as "classic walking country".

The hotel is a 5-minute drive from the market town of Darlington, known for its associations with the birth of railways: the world's first steam-powered passenger railway ran between Shildon and Stockton-on-Tees via Darlington, on the Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1825. Head of Steam - Darlington Railway Museum is a 10-minute drive away.

Blackwell Grange Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course extending over 145 acres, is less than a 5-minute drive away. The Victorian South Park, set in 91 acres, is a 10-minute walk away. The park received a multimillion-pound investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and has sensory rock and rose gardens, a lake, a bandstand and a café.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a 40-minute drive away and the hotel is an hour's drive from the city of York.

The on-site Havelock Restaurant offers a varied à la carte menu, and the less-formal Captain Cook's Bar has views over the grounds and golf course. The hotel's facilities include a gym, a pool and saunas. There's also a giant chess set in the garden. There are 109 bedrooms in total -- all designed in neutral tones.

Staff very welcoming and friendly. Nice, comfortable double room and smart bathroom. The Travelzoo offer included £14 each towards the dinner which was beautifully cooked. However the weather was cold and so was the dining room! We also felt the dining room arrangement was too open and could benefit from some partitioning?
