Bed & Breakfast


Durham is a beautiful, busy, compact provincial city – full of history and famous for its Norman Cathedral and Castle, designated a World Heritage Site. To the front, St Chad’s College is situated in the shadow of the Cathedral’s east end, and to the rear it overlooks the River Wear. Our central location makes St Chad’s the ideal base for exploring the city and surrounding countryside. Other attractions easily reached by car include the Bowes Museum, Hadrian’s Wall, North Yorkshire and Northumbria including Bamburgh, Alnwick and Lindisfarne Castles, as well as the Holy Island of Lindisfarne itself.

Make St Chad’s College your base….

We operate commercially during Durham University Easter and Summer vacation periods, typically dates within March, April, July, August and September.

Accommodation is situated in one of our historic houses on North Bailey, which are far older than their Georgian frontages suggest, some of which are approximately a 5 minute walk from the main college building and heading into town close to restaurants and bars.  Most houses have 3 floors which are accessible by stairs only.

All of our rooms are individual, clean, tastefully decorated and very often contain original features. Tea and coffee-making facilities are provided, as are towels, and rooms are en-suite or have private shared facilities (Standard rooms).

Our prices are very competitive and we have gained an English Tourist Board 3 Star rating which is an assurance that our accommodation is comfortable and our service efficient.


Breakfast is served in the Moulsdale Hall from 08:00 – 09:30. A choice of Full English or Continental style breakfast is available. Our excellent chefs and friendly kitchen staff will be only too happy to help.
