Following the storm, many parts of the Raby Estate in County Durham are still without power or connectivity.
Our team have been working tirelessly to assess the damage and to prioritise the reinstatement of water supplies, along with identifying vulnerable people within our community.
We will liaise closely with Northern PowerGrid and post any updates we receive.
Please note The High Force Hotel & Waterfall are now back open as normal.
Thank you for your cooperation.

The power supply has thankfully been restored at High Force Hotel. We are delighted to be able to offer a warm space for the local community and visitors during this challenging time.
Our fires will be lit offering a toasty space, a limited food offer, (until we can fill our fridges again!) and free WIFI. For any local residents who are still without power, we have a guest room available for you to take a hot shower. Please just bring towels and toiletries and ask our friendly staff at the bar who will be happy to help.
Thank you for your cooperation whilst we’ve been closed. We wish everyone well and hope that our usual service will resume next week.
Considering the hotel was working hard to manage after a big storm which had taken out all power we were given the warmest of welcomes. A roaring fire was the perfect tonic to the nippy weather and the homemade soup was delicious. Next time we would like to stay as a hotel guest. A lovely place with a big heart. – Jill Clarke
