Nestling high on the North Pennines, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, The Ancient Unicorn has, for centuries, been a resting place for travellers who journey across the Pennines. Today, it’s a superb place to stay or dine – whether you are walking or cycling, or simply visiting Teesdale for a regional holiday or a short break.
What better way to relax than to sit in the cosy bar with a freshly pulled pint of real ale or a glass of wine and enjoy the warm and welcome atmosphere of this traditional coaching inn.
The Ancient Unicorn is also perfectly placed to dine after visiting nearby Bowes Museum and Barnard Castle, or for much needed nourishment after one of the many exhilarating walks in the surrounding countryside.
There is always a warm friendly welcome with a roaring fire to greet you in the low-beamed bar. Families are always welcome.
