We travel north to our hotel and our 4-night stay.


We visit Raby Castle and Gardens, home to Lord Barnard's family since 1626. One of the finest medieval Castles in England the gardens are a mix of traditional 18th century ornamental Walled Gardens, Yew Hedges, Trees, Plants and Ornaments. We return via Escomb Village, to admire the hidden little gem of Escomb Saxon Church, considered one of the finest 7th century churches in the country.


We begin our day by heading for the County Durham Coastline. Commencing at Noses Point - Once home to one of the biggest coal mines in Europe, where the beach was buried under 2 ½ million tonnes of colliery waste each year. The Beach has now been cleaned and is a spectacular haven for wildflowers and wildlife. We continue via Seaham to Whitburn, pausing at the Souter Lighthouse (NT). Next, we skirt inland from South Shield to Washington Old Hall (NT) - a picturesque stone manor house and gardens with strong associations to the family of George Washington, first president of the United States.


A day at leisure in Durham, with free time to explore this medieval city's cobbled streets and imposing Cathedral.


A leisurely drive homeward arriving home during the afternoon.
