Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed overnight with my two Daughters and my Daughters friend, what a lovely place to stay ,we had a three bedroomed cottage, it was a great stay, very warm and welcoming, everything you needed was there, great welcome from the owner, would definitely return, only gripe i would say we had, you have to leave by 10 am, which we thought was a little early, i thought 11 am, would of been more acceptable.

I'm worried about writing such a good review as it means it may be booked up next time we want to visit ! We stayed in a 2 bed apartment on this occasion. Pros Location Cleanliness (spotlessly clean) Welcoming Great size of apartment Basics provided Dishwasher & washer dryer for an effortless stay. Great lighting Sound proofing (full but didn't hear a peep from anyone) Lovely surroundings Cons No bread knife (ie if you buy Beamish bread!) Tips to visitors This is a really great apartment in a great location for visits across the NE Tip to owners Keep doing what you're doing! Only suggestions is make would be to add bread knife into utensils and also a mix of soft pillows as well as the harder ones. Overall this is a great apartment and I'm so glad I have found it for future visits to the area.

Lovely welcome from reception. We were directed to our very well equipped 2 bedroomed apartment and shown where everything was. The apartment had a large double bedroom with ensuite, a second twin bedroom and a bathroom. The living area consisted of a kitchen area complete with fridge, oven, microwave, hob, washer/dryer and dishwasher; a dining table and two sofas. There were tea bags, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, a few dishwasher tablets, an iron with board, and clothes airer for our use. Both bedrooms were equipped with the usual toiletries, towels and coat hangers and at least one hair dryer. Basically a home from home. The views from the properties are beautiful and the immediate gardens and land are very well kept. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved this place from the moment we arrived. Of course, it helped that they gave us an upgrade but the buildings are beautiful on the outside, and very well equipped, clean and spacious on the inside with excellent décor and furnishings. Particularly liked the artwork on the walls of local scenes. Beautifully executed and lovely to see something relevant to the location. Excellent bed and bedding, good hot water and towels. A lovely rural location and a good base for Durham and the surrounding areas, including coastal areas and the cricket ground. Plenty of rooms so this would be a great place for a gathering or celebration. Recommended

Just spent 4 nights in one of the 2 bedroom apartments, outstanding! The apartment was modern, spacious, superbly equipped and clean. Price was reasonable and we received a warm welcome from the owner. The apartments are ideally located a couple of miles from Durham and Chester le Street, the park and ride for Durham is just down the road. There are also plenty of restaurants in the vicinity. One word of warning, we tried to eat in the Red Lion on Sunday evening but discovered that the kitchen closes at 18.45. If we ever return to the area we wouldn't look further than Plawsworth.

My husband and I have just returned from a five night stay here and we have had a wonderful time! The apartment was spacious and spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. We came to do some family history research in the area and hopefully we’ll return to continue the research. Plawsworth Hall and the apartments are located in a beautiful spot and the views are breathtaking. We ate at a couple of the local pubs, The Red Lion and The Church Mouse and would eat at both of them again. A perfect break! Thank you.

Wow! What a stunning location! Accommodation is top notch, home from Home! Modern, clean and comfortable. Howard and Harry are fantastic hosts and always willing to chat and help. Our two bedroom premium apartment was ready early so we could move in earlier. Showers are hot and powerful, beds very comfortable. Scenery and views outstanding! We also ate locally at the Red Lion, Chester Moor and le Raaj and all very good, and walking distance eg all within a mile, if you fancy a walk! Will be visiting Plawsworth again! Top tip, book direct!

What a fabulous stay we had here at Plawsworth. Fabulous accommodation and all staff and owners went out of their way to help us - above and beyond the call of duty. Bus stops a very brief walk away and plenty of shops a 5 minute bus ride away. Approximately 12 minutes by bus into the center of Durham. Buses each way about every 10 minutes. Surrounded by beautiful green fields ideal for walking. Cannot recommend this holiday stay highly enough. We look forward to returning ( from New Zealand and Vietnam) next year.
