Cradled by the rolling green countryside, The Chilton Country Pub and Hotel serves as an inviting retreat in County Durham, with a reputation for traditional dining opportunities. Just a 20-minute drive from Sunderland, visitors can enjoy numerous sights and attractions such as the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens, National Glass Centre or St. Peter’s Church. Overlooking the lush greenery, 25 en suite bedrooms provide homely comforts such as hot drink facilities, TVs and Wi-Fi. With a traditional farmhouse feel, the kitchen brigade of the Orangery Restaurant creates a varied seasonal menu and has become a popular meeting point for locals.
