We Accept


This charming 17th century country mansion stands in beautiful gardens surrounded by its own rolling farmland and offers luxurious accommodation, a stunning spa and enjoyable golf course. It is an idyllic rural retreat in the picturesque and peaceful Durham Dales, near to Barnard Castle & Newton Aycliffe.

The forty en-suite bedrooms are located in either the Main Hall, Coach House, Mews or Spa and as you would expect in a country mansion there are differing shapes, styles and character. All rooms, however, have a high standard of decor and furnishings with newly appointed bathrooms, free wireless internet access, Sky television, ironing centres and tea and coffee making facilities with complimentary mineral water. For many people being able to bring their four-legged friend on a short break in the countryside is an important factor so we welcome well-behaved dogs in some of our Mews bedrooms (deluxe double, twin or family) without charge. These rooms are very well suited as they have direct access to the outside and their own designated car parking place just outside.

The restaurant at Headlam Hall is set over three rooms, each offering its own style and character. The Panelled room has a warm and intimate ambiance and the Orangery a fresh tranquil atmosphere.

The kitchen team enjoy an excellent reputation for producing tasty dishes reflecting the best of modern British and Continental cuisine with an emphasis on using fresh, high quality locally sourced produce. The extensive wine list offers both quality and value with a combination of classical European and New World wines.

Designed to the highest standards for its members, hotel residents and day spa guests, Headlam Spa is a place to relax, exercise and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of water in a comfortable and friendly environment that reflects the beauty of the surrounding countryside.The location of our spa near Scotch corner, is perfect for those wishing to visit, or arrive from, the Durham, Barnard Castle, Newton Aycliffe and Darlington areas.
