Weardale is a wonderful place to visit if you love the outdoors and culture. Within Stanhope itself, only a short walk from the railway, are an array of local independent shops, three pubs, an art gallery, and the Weardale open-air swimming pool. There are plenty of things to do in the local area for a fabulous day out or a fun weekend away!

We are situated in the picturesque Weardale, Co. Durham. From the A1, follow the signs for Weardale and turn off onto the A68 at junction 58. Stay on the A68 to Harperley Roundabout and follow signs for Stanhope onto the A689 for around ten miles until you come to Stanhope. The postcode for Stanhope Station for your satnav is DL13 2YS.

For Witton-le-Wear, come off the A1 at the same junction but turn into Witton-le-Wear (signposted) between Toft Hill and Fir Tree. If you come out of one and reach the other, you’ve gone too far. Our platform at Witton-le-Wear doesn’t have a post code, but a close one for your satnav is Station Road at DL14 0AN.

We also have stations at Frosterley and Wolsingham, both in Weardale. Trains stop at Frosterley on request and Wolsingham is a regular stop. There are places to stay as well, including B&Bs and hotels. Further afield in Weardale, you could take a trip to the Weardale Museum in Ireshopeburn, or visit Killhope Lead Mining Museum.
