About the Punch Bowl Inn

The Punch Bowl Inn is situated in the quiet village of Edmundbyers, approximately 2.5 miles from the A68 and adjacent to the Derwent Reservoir in the lovely Derwent valley on the Durham/Northumberland Border.

Within easy reach of Newcastle Airport and the historic city of Durham (20 miles) we are ideally placed for a quiet break or a simple stop-over en route to or from Scotland or the Lakes. Hadrian’s Wall, award winning Beamish Open Air Museum and World Heritage Site Durham Cathedral are just some of the area’s attractions.

Close to the Coast to Coast walking/cycling route (with secure parking for bicycles) we have six en-suite bedrooms and provide a traditional breakfast to get you on your way, with a good packed lunch if you wish!

Just a short distance from the Derwent Sailing Club and some first class Grouse and Pheasant shooting in the immediate area.

Fishing can be arranged on the reservoir or on local fishing club waters which provide good sport for both brown and rainbow trout and good spots for grayling, early requests please to avoid disappointment.

Internet access is available along with quality home-made food, including our own renowned puddings and ice creams make the Punch Bowl an ideal spot to take a breather or for a longer break.

Lorna & Mark have long experience in providing a home from home atmosphere and take pride in offering their guests a relaxed and friendly welcome in what is, after all, their home.
