About Old Well Inn

The traditional Old Well Inn is housed in a 17th-century building and is just a short walk from the historic site of the Barnard Castle ruins.

There are ten bright, inviting rooms available for accommodation, each of which is individually decorated. Details such as exposed stone walls, four-poster beds, and beautiful furniture add character and charm to the guest quarters. There are en-suite bathrooms, television, and tea and coffee making facilities available in each room.

The inn has free parking available nearby, and Wi-Fi is available in public areas. Pets are welcome to the inn as well.

There are three restaurants onsite: a pizza/pasta eatery called Rabana’s, the main restaurant, and a conservatory with continental-style choices. Guests can also enjoy a selection of cask ales in the inviting bar.

Guests can fish the nearby River Tees, or take a stroll or bike ride along Pennine Way.

Positive Reviews

An Inn with Lots of Character

From the warm, friendly staff to the cosy ambiance of this 17th-century building, the Old Well Inn makes for an unforgettable experience.

Spacious, Comfortable Rooms

The guest rooms at this inn have plenty of space for spreading out. If you have your pet, other family members, or extra luggage with you, you'll be happy to find lots of room so that you can avoid feeling cramped during your stay.

Negative Reviews

In Need of Some Updates

Guests have found that this inn could use some renovations. The décor appears to be a bit outdated, and some of the fixtures are beginning to look a bit worn. With that being said, most guests found that these details did not affect the overall cosy ambiance of the inn.

Check the Restaurant Hours

Many visitors have found that the hotel's eateries did not offer food on Monday evenings. Should you wish to eat something during that time, you may have to make other arrangements and visit a restaurant or café somewhere off the property.

Temperamental Wi-Fi

You may find that the Wi-Fi signal can be intermittent during your stay here. It's possible that the signal is stronger in the public areas, so if you need to do any work or be connected to the Internet during your trip, you may need to do so there.
