Very peaceful setting. The room was extremely clean and comfortable and beautifully furnished. Geoff and his daughter were really friendly and helpful, and cooked a great breakfast. The public transport links to Durham and Newcastle in particular are good - frequent buses and trains.

I was in the area and needed to book somewhere quickly. After searching on Tripadvisor I came across this gem. A 9.4 rating and good comments made me book without hesitation - my only query is - who rated it lower?!! Hidden away in a quiet cul-de-sac the host Geoff met me at the door and showed me around. I...

An example of what a B&B should do; a warm welcome, clean and beautifully appointed rooms, a quiet setting, fabulous breakfast, free wi-fi, exceptional value for money. Can't fault it. If you're visiting Durham, why pay over £100 for a bog-standard room when you can stay here, just a couple of miles from the City.
