Yarm has a pretty position on the bank of the River Tees, with the oldest part of the town nestled into a loop of the river. The high street has many Georgian buildings and cobbled streets, and certainly adds to the town’s overall appeal. The best places to stay in Yarm tend to be charming country house hotels just outside of the town (that way you’re right in amongst the best of the scenery), though there's plenty of the usual pubs with rooms or B&Bs too.
The town’s rather spectacular railway viaduct, with its 43 arches adds a lot to the scene. Yarm also has some charming woodland, with ash, sycamore and lime trees predominantly.
There is a regular monthly Farmer’s Market in the town centre. But probably most importantly for visitors, Yarm is close to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Durham Cathedral, the Darlington Railway Museum and Barnard Castle.
Our pick of the best places to stay in Yarm are two country house offerings with great food just outside the town itself.
