It won’t be long before the skyline of Durham is restored to its former glory, as the conservation work on Durham Cathedral’s central tower draws to a close. It will be open to the public once again from Saturday 1 June 2019.
The reopening, sponsored by Baldwins Accountants, will mean that visitors will once again be able to take on the challenging 325 step climb to take in the unrivaled views of Durham and beyond for the first time in over three years. It is only from this height that the beautiful dapple effect of the new sandstone merging with the old can be fully appreciated.
Guests arriving at our award winning cottage, The Briar Rose, located in the Vale of Durham, can immediately enjoy a cuppa and a snack before unpacking. We supply a selection of teas, coffees and hot chocolate for your stay. Arriving late is not a problem, we provide s selection of goodies for your first breakfast. (There may be some choc ices in the freezer too). No need to bring your kitchen supplies with you as there is seasoning, a selection of herbs , spices and sauces available.
There is so much going on in the north east these days that we felt the best way of letting you know was to show you the key sites from the various tourist bodies in the region and other key websites . Enjoy
All the Christmas decorations have been put away for another year.
Touch up decorating has been completed. Soft furnishings and carpets have been cleaned. New bed linen purchased. The Briar Rose is ready to provide our guests with the high standard of accommodation they have come to expect from us.

We look forward to welcoming you in 2019

The majority of families mark Christmas by putting up and decorating a Christmas tree in their homes over the Christmas period. We have done this for our guests over the Christmas period to ensure they feel “home from home”.
Last week the crew from BBC’s Countryfile were filming here in Durham. Presenters Helen Skelton and Steve Brown visited the county to learn more about the region’s traditional rapper dance, fancy pigeons and various other arts and crafts native to the county.
