Rookhope is a fairly isolated village in the Rock Hope valley, a side-valley of Weardale. The village is approached from the village of Eastgate along the valley road, over a fell-road from Westgate, or along a longer road up the valley and over the fells to Allenheads. The north-western part of the village is called Bolt's Burn, after a stream that runs through the village to join Rockhope Burn.
