White-le-head is a small, quaint village situated in County Durham. It has a number of small local cafe,s and pubs within walking distance.

Please note although this is semi rural accommodation, we still have neighbours and request that guests are respectful of those around you.
We want you to enjoy yourselves with friends or family but we ask that music is of an acceptable level and no rowdiness and swearing, as families occupy surrounding property.
We do not have stag or hen parties.
Those looking for somewhere to kick your heals and play loud music, sing and shout this is not the place for you.

Those who want to chill, take in countryside, see The Northeast and/or family and friends, who enjoy a good drink with background music and a hot tub then this is the place for you and you are very welcome xx
