“Very clean, well equipped and modern, great location and comfortable.”

Dove Cottage is only a few minutes walk from the bus stop and is an excellent location for Durham city centre which is a fifteen minute bus journey away. Sherburn Village is also well located for other places of interest.

Although there is no restaurant in the village, there is a handy Co-op providing the usual ready meals, frozen food, groceries etc and is open until 10pm.

The owners, Carol and Bryan, were very helpful providing local information etc. They were welcoming and friendly, but did not intrude on our privacy. A pleasure to meet!

We loved the cottage and the beautiful garden containing a summer house which we enjoyed using most mornings for breakfast. A lovely, clean, comfortable and modern holiday home.

The location was great for the local attractions of Durham, out to the walking areas and the coast. The cottage was well equipped, clean and comfortable. Very friendly owners.

“Fine place to stay”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Very well appointed cottage. Comfortable and with a dovecote on one side of it- no noise from them, just a nice touch. Owners adjacent, yet leave you well alone. Great, long garden which looks out onto open country. Recommended.

“Diamond find”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Superb cosy cottage, spotlessly clean, well equipped and very homely. A great location for touring the North East and a day trip to Edinburgh. Lovely and relaxing to return to after a long day. Owners were very helpful with local information.

“beautifully clean”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well equipped kitchen with everything I needed. Bathroom was so clean that I thought it had just been installed! It was lovely to come home after a cycle ride and sit on the patio listening to the birds in the garden. Safe cycle storage in garage. Well stocked shop nearby, cycling on quiet lanes and tracks straight from the cottage. Would definitely recomend and would be happy to stay there again.

Excellent boiler and heating. Really good cooking pans, knives and cutlery. Lots of kitchen work area. V. comfy bed, quality linen and towels. V. strong shower. Comfy chairs. Splendid garden with a four dove (and two rogue pigeons) dovecote. Just the job and the owners are most helpful and obliging. Close to country paths and 300 yds from the Co-op. On a bus route to Durham City. I got 5 Mb Wifi in lounge. No negatives at all. Thanks team!

I would absolutely recommend this cottage for a couple or single traveller. The property is very well maintained with excellent kitchen facilities and utensils. The owner Carol could not be more helpful and it takes 10 minutes to get into Durham city. I would definitely go back.
