We stayed one night in Beaumont family room, which was really comfortable. Andy & Jill were very welcoming. We had tea brought up on our arrival. It was quiet and peaceful but very close to city centre. Best breakfast in a b & b for a long time.

What a wonderful time we had in Durham -- the cathedral is awe-inspiring, but just as wonderful was our cozy B&B, the Victorian Town House. This place is pretty much the ideal B & B experience. The room was good-sized, very clean and well-appointed, and close to the cathedral.

Hi Anna- Maria We will of course try to help but we will be closed for part of that time to attend a wedding abroad. If you can't find one place for the whole of your stay please feel free to come back to us. Kind regards Andy and Jill

I'm sure they can provide a suitable smaller type room so suggest you enquire. We've only ever travelled as a couple.7

Hi. We couldn't do this is in one room but could do the dates. We would suggest the Flambard Room ( double en suite) at £100 per night inc breakfast and the Langley Room ( twin en suite) at £95 per night inc breakfast. We could also offer free parking for one car. Kind regards

We have one off- street parking space which is available to whoever books earliest and asks for it. Otherwise we offer parking permits and guests can usually park within 25 yards of the door. the only guarantee is to book first!

"We had two rooms, and though the Beaumont was larger and had a sofa, we slightly preferred the Flambard for its decor."
"Try the Flambard Room with its view towards the City, and a real suntrap in the morning."
"I stayed in the single room which has a separate, private bathroom - a robe was provided - lovely shower and products too!"
"The Flambard is a double room with a view of the withdrawal. The Langley twin is ground floor - so good for folk who struggle with stairs!"
"Flambard room is lovely"
