Plawsworth Hall Serviced Cottages and Apartments

Home
If we had to choose one word to sum up why people are choosing Plawsworth Hall cottages over traditional hotels…that word would be freedom.
With hotels you get a room, with us you get a home. A key to your own front door with the freedom to come and go as you please. Have some friends over for drinks, relax in front of the TV, cook a meal or order a takeaway. The choice is entirely yours.
Imagine your home in the middle of beautiful Durham countryside. You look out of the window and see green fields and blue sky, the silence disturbed only by the birds singing. You step-out into a gorgeous private courtyard, perfect for lazy days, alfresco dining and having fun with the kids. And there’s an abundance of car parking space too.
From long walks through a stunning 50 acre private site alive with the fresh vibrant colours of summer to curling up with a book in the warm seclusion of your own space, it’s a complete contrast to the rigid formality of impersonal hotels.
There are no “hidden extras” like drinks from the mini-bar or telephone charges and the cost is much less than most hotels. And, unlike most holiday homes, we’re VAT registered which makes us even more competitive for companies that are able to reclaim VAT.
Combine the luxury and comfort of a top hotel with the freedom and independence of home and you have it – Plawsworth Hall cottages.

Holiday
Situated in the quiet, award winning village of Plawsworth and surrounded by the magnificent Durham countryside Plawsworth Hall cottages provide a comfortable, home from home, rural retreat and a great opportunity to get away from it all.
Only 3 miles from the historic city of Durham with its world famous cathedral you’ll find numerous museums and galleries, ancient castles and historic houses. County Durham’s beautiful coast and countryside with its country parks and riverside walks are legendary while Durham’s central location makes the whole north east so accessible.
With its fascinating blend of Christian, social and industrial heritage along with some of England’s most beautiful and unspoilt landscape, County Durham is the perfect place for a relaxing countryside break. It’s also an excellent touring base with Hadrian’s Wall, Lindisfarne and the Northumberland coast, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District in close proximity.
There’s a food store, a Post Office, newsagents and a busy pub and restaurant serving breakfast - all within walking distance. The Arnison Centre retail park with a large Sainsbury’s hypermarket is just over a mile away. Several excellent take-aways are just 2 miles away plus a number of local top class restaurants. A concierge service is also available if you require any assistance.


Visiting Relatives
Plawsworth Hall cottages provide a perfect, relaxed, cost effective solution if you’re visiting relatives. You have complete freedom; this is your home for as long as you stay with us. You can come and go exactly as you please, you don’t have to leave by a certain time or return by a certain time, you have the key to your own front door. Some days you may decide to eat out, some days you may decide to “stay home” and cook your favourite meal, maybe your dietary requirements make that a preferable option. Or you could invite your relatives over for dinner or maybe a barbecue in the courtyard?
Although Plawsworth is a small village of approximately 40 houses we’re ideally situated between Durham and Chester-Le-Street allowing easy access to main roads.

Relocation or Renovation
If you’re in the middle of a house buying chain and the timing’s not working out perfectly, you might possibly need to vacate your house before your new one is ready. Maybe you’re thinking of moving to the area and need to get your bearings, research schools for the kids or check out the local amenities. You might be having some building or renovation work done to your house which is proving to be too disruptive and need to escape the noise and upheaval.

Corporate Short Term Contracts
For business people, workers or consultants on short term contracts or projects Plawsworth Cottages offers a more relaxed and informal solution than hotels, it becomes home for the length of your stay.

And ideally to the highest specification whilst meeting the demands of your busy working life. We also have special discounts available for extended bookings, the longer you stay the greater the value.
Hotels can be a little restricting and claustrophobic, particularly for long stays. It’s so much nicer to be able to live exactly as you would at home and enjoy far greater flexibility, independence and privacy. You can cook your own food and wash your own clothes, much as you would at home. Have friends or work colleagues over, cook dinner for them or employ a chef for the evening.
