**A County Durham museum will not open to the public for the start of the summer season as planned. Durham County Council has taken the decision not to open Killhope at the beginning of next month, after an inspection revealed issues with the condition of some of the structures on the site therefore would not be fair to welcome visitors when they are not able to access the whole of the site.**
If you've ever wanted to sleep under the starry sky but also like your home comforts then come to the yurt and make your dreams come true!
