The Village

Hamsterley is pleasantly situated on the brow of a hill seven miles from Bishop Auckland. The village has a rural aspect and is close to the impressive Hamsterley Forest with its 4 mile forest drive, orienteering course, horse riding trails, mountain biking routes, and forest and riverside walks.

The Hall

The village hall was originally built as a school in 1822 and was converted to a village hall in 1967. It stands on the village green near the pond. The size, versatility of the layout and full accessibility of Hamsterley Village Hall make it an ideal choice for private and business functions.
