About this property

Situated in the picturesque Teesdale village of Romaldkirk lies dog-friendly inn The Rose & Crown. Dating back to the mid-18th-century, this quintessentially British inn is surrounded by spectacular dales with the scenic upper reaches of the River Tees nearby for strolls with your canine companion. Comfortable and relaxing with touches of luxury, the interiors of the property combine fabulous period features with contemporary touches to provide a laid-back and stylish place to stay with your pooch. Explore the market town of Barnard Castle, famous for its collection of antique shops, or enjoy walks from the doorstep and make your way down to the river Tees to stretch Fido’s legs. On return, you’ll feel instantly at home in the cosy bar, with its gorgeous open fireplace and friendly atmosphere. As featured in the PetsPyjamas 2019 Travel Edit, The Rose & Crown is one of the most dog-friendly destinations in County Durham and even has it's own outdoor doggy hose area and towels to wash and dry muddy paws after walks! 

Dine with Your Dog

The kitchen team creates great tasting food using the very best of the local produce and ingredients. Guests can dine with their dog for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the bar area, a ‘proper Dales bar’, with its stone flagged floor, old wooden beams, rural knick-knacks and a big open fireplace. With an extensive drinks menu and a choice of light bites, traditional roasts or the a la carte menu, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Bow wow factor

Resident pooches, Perdy the Labrador and Mabel the Jack Russell know all of the best walks! For mucky pups, there is even a hose area to wash muddy paws.
