There is a comfortable dining room and a fully equipped kitchen all on the ground floor. The front facing bedrooms are spacious and have wonderful views of the church in all its glory, and its well worth a visit. There are organised tours of this stunning Grade I listed building, and just a short walk away there is the Heugh Battery Museum with its collection of uniforms, weapons and stories from wartime North East England. It is also home to the only British gun battery to have fired its guns in anger during the First World War! Although not normally associated with tourism, Hartlepool has so much to offer that it really is a hidden gem. Home to HMS Trincomalee, P.S.S Wingfield Castle and the Hartlepool Maritime Experience, which is a superb re-creation of an 18th century seaport, telling the story of life at sea at the time of Nelson, Napoleon and the Battle of Trafalgar, which dares you to experience life aboard a real British Naval frigate two centuries ago. HMS Trincomalee has been painstakingly restored for visitors to savour the unique atmosphere and experience of life on board the classic British frigate with sights and sounds. Hartlepool Marina is now one of the most modern in Europe, and its Navigation Point is perfect for food lovers who will be spoilt for choice with tastes from around the world to suit any palate and budget, from Spanish tapas to a 1950’s style ice cream shop. At night time, the place comes alive with a hive of activity around the numerous bars, and there are some nice wine bars to relax and chill in. Church Street is crammed with bars and restaurants, attracting thousands of revellers every weekend. Fully restored to its former glory, Church Street is full of beautiful architecture from back in the days when trams used to grace its streets. A fabulous promenade connects the marina with one of the Victorian era’s favourite North East resorts. Seaton Carew boasts miles of broad golden sands and safe sheltered bathing making it perfect for a traditional family day out at the seaside. It has miles of flat beaches to fly kites and build castles, rock pools to hunt shrimps, and traditional amusement arcades. Hidden beaches such as North Gare and Crimdon Dene are also a short distance away. For bird watchers, there is the RSBP site at Salthome which attracts a wide variety of birds throughout the year, and Seal Sands Nature Reserve is home to over a hundred grey seals. Visit at a low tide, where you can nearly always see the animals lying out on the sandbank in the middle of the lagoon, or visit when the tide is in and you will be able to see the seals more closely as they push themselves up Greatham Creek. Head further afield to visit natural beauty such as Holy Island and Lindisfarne, an hour up the coast, or Beamish Open Air Museum for a trip back in time. There are many golf courses in the area, a racecourse at nearby Sedgefield and the city of Durham is a short drive inland. There really is too much to list, but you will certainly never have time to get bored and will want to return to Church View. Beach 20 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
