I together with another chap spent three days in Co Durham for some walking, sightseeing with a little historical research, during which time we stayed three nights at the Royal Oak. Outstandingly good in every respect. Beds, food and ale were excellent and one could not have been made more welcome by Sonia and Ian who run the pub. We were quickly accepted by the locals who could chat on any subject and held many varied views and opinions together with a remarkable historical knowledge of the area.
If you want to escape the world, relax, and get to know the area and the wonderful people in this part of the world, the Royal Oak is a must stay.. Haven't mentioned the pricing, the value for money is outstanding. Do ask about the publications relating to Durham Cathedral printed by Ian Copinger they are brilliant.
