About the hotel
Hillrise is a small friendly-run Guest House offering a very high standard of accommodation and home cooked food with a 3 star registration. There is a homely and intimate feel to the Guest Sitting Room with Living Flame Gas Fire, Colour Television with Freeview and DVD video player together with a selection of DVD's to watch. Bowburn is well located for visiting the North East's attractions, particularly the historic city of Durham.
Durham Cathedral is the greatest Norman building in England, perhaps even in Europe. It is cherished not only for its architecture but also for its incomparable setting. Slightly further afield is Beamish Museum, Britain's favourite open air museum, set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside, vividly recreates life in the North of England in the early 1800s and 1900s. There is also The Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle, about 30 minutes drive South from the Guest House. A superb museum housed in a custom-made Italian style 19th. Century palazzo.

Weekend in Bowburn - Durham Miners Gala
Booked 2 night's stay in July 2016.
When I mentioned it to friends they booked additional rooms.
Large sized room with even an ironing board supplied. Lots of sockets for charging mobiles etc and good free WIFI in bedrooms , lounge and breakfast room. Hosts Jackie and John were lovely and little Charlie the dog was also welcoming. Breakfast was good - asked for scrambled eggs and willingly provided. Choice of white or brown toast and good filter coffee. In rooms tea and coffee making facilities and TV with freeview. Rooms were traditional B&B which makes a great change from Big Brands and bed was very comfortable
Social club just behind building and good bus links to Durham. Taxi for 4 was £10.
I would highly recommend staying with John and Jacqui they have a lovely building and are very friendly with good conversation.
Any enquiries they are happy to help as soon as possible. We were treat to a brilliant full english in the morning with plenty other options if you fancy something different. They were more than happy to follow my special request of leaving a card on the bed for my girlfriend with a lovely little note for her arrival. They have a lovely friendly dog called charlie who is blind and loves a good stroke he can sharp tell when you stop stroking him still. There is also a tortoise in the rear yard and a bluetit nesting box where i seen a couple while having a conversation with jacqui. The property is only a few stops away from durham centre and I wouldnt think twice about staying there again if i need to.
