Situated in the tranquil village of Rookhope, itself nestled in the stunning scenery of Weardale in the Wear Valley. Barrington Bunkhouse is the perfect place for cyclists and walkers to rest up for the night, or for Family groups wanting a weekend get away. Inside Barrington Bunkhouse you will find clean, comfortable accommodation for large or small groups. The bunkhouse can accommodate 15 people, 13 in the bunkroom, each bunk has a personal reading light, and two in the cosy and quirky caravan. There is also space for campers on the two lawns in front of the bunkhouse. In the centre of the bunkroom is a communal seating area which includes a television and a selection of films. The kitchen offers guests a self-service continental breakfast, with a full range of utensils provided alongside two toasters, a kettle, a fridge and a microwave. An electric two-hotplate hob and saucepans are available on request if you are wanting to self cater. All are welcome at Barrington Bunkhouse but its idyllic location, right next door to The Rookhope Inn which serves a good pint and very substantial tasty meals, makes it the perfect place for cyclists tackling the Coast to Coast (C2C) route and walkers embarking on The Pennine Journey or The Weardale Way.
