Like many travellers, we passed The George many times over incalculable years, glad we stopped this time. Built beside a peaceful river bank it is also within a very historic Roman setting.
Room was spacious with two double beds, though en-suite a little tired.
Food excellent, recommend the `house` burger, without the unremarkable chips!
Breakfast cooked to order.
Do walk across the bridge to the lovely village and the village pub at the other end. Pub, The Carlbury Arms, is run by a welcoming young Irishman, has a large dining area.
After indulging, you may like to then see the Roman Latrines, (signposted), worth seeking out.
Many walkers and cyclists also stop off here, the countryside being truly beautiful.
From The George it is a mere 45min drive to Newcastle, and probably less to the market town of Darlington
