Nicely placed just outside Durham, this is a very pleasant country house hotel. Surrounded by golf courses and trees, it's very quiet. There were some building works going on, but this didn't detract.
The room was a decent size, with a comfortable bed and good quality fittings. There was plenty of space to get the laptop out to catch up on a few notes, and there was also ample seating to sit and chill out with a book.
Good ale available in the bar, and the food was very good.More
