Queens Luxury Apartments Surroundings

Stanhope is a serene country village nestled in the heart of Weardale, boasting panoramic views of natural heather moorlands, beautiful wildlife and tumbling rivers set against a backdrop of lush green wooded fells.

The scenic valley of Weardale lies on the east side of the North Pennines.

Titled an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, the North Pennines is one of England’s natural un-spoilt landscapes.

The Queens Apartments is situated on the main street of a thriving market town, within short walking distance of all the local amenities. A warm welcome will await you from local pubs, cafes, gift shops and art galleries whilst the town also hosts an Indian/Chinese takeaway and fine quality fish & chip shop. Wander down to the local greengrocers to pick up fresh local produce or if you’re feeling adventurous why not take a stroll alongside the River Wear where you will find Stanhope ‘Steppy Stones’. Stanhope not only offers agricultural beauty but also preserves the historical ambience through its different landmarks and hidden secrets, including the fossil tree and fairy caves.

It is the ideal location for discovering magnificent landscapes, beautiful walking routes and play areas for children in almost every village throughout Weardale. We promise that there is something here for everyone!

For effortless exploring of the local surroundings, a bus stop is located right on the door of the building with buses running on the hour to a wide range of destinations, including the UK’s biggest shopping centre; The Metro Centre in Gateshead.

Nightlife in Stanhope can be enjoyed in one of the 3 different public houses, offering a friendly atmosphere, karaoke, live entertainment and of course refreshing beverages. 25 minutes into the nearby town of Crook hosts a few more restaurants and a range of pubs. A little further afield, half an hours taxi drive will take you to Durham city centre whilst an hours taxi drive will find you in Newcastle upon Tyne, both of which are well known for their thriving nightlife, cocktail bars and classy restaurants.

For almost 900 years, it has been the palace of the Prince Bishops of Durham and although the site where Auckland Castle now stands has seen numerous changes, few will have been as far reaching and visionary as those which are set to take place in the 21st Century.
