Romaldkirk is one of the region’s most highly regarded and quintessentially English villages. A variety of imposing houses and cottages surround a large village green with facilities comprising a church, village hall, a renowned hotel/restaurant and public house. A wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities can be found within the neighbouring villages of Cotherstone and Middleton in Teesdale along with the larger historic market town of Barnard Castle.
For the commuter the A66, A67 and A1(M) provide links with the major commercial centres of the North East. Darlington Mainline Railway Station along with Newcastle International Airport offer further communications with the rest of the country.
