Fantastic rental home, very luxurious well equipped and very quiet location.
Beamish living museum within walking distance as well as restaurants and pub.
Ideal location for visiting other attractions close to property.
We had a superb week at Shutters which is a beautiful home that has everything you could possibly need. The decor, facilities and cleanliness are of the highest standard and the kitchen has everything you could need for your stay. The area is very quiet and the garden, on two levels, is very pretty with greenery all around. Andrea is extremely attentive and helpful and was very quick to respond and try and help when we had a problem. The house is brilliantly located to explore the North East and we easily filled our week away without having to drive more than 45 minutes away.
We couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough to the extent that we've already suggested it to 2 of our family who want to explore this part of the country. Lots of space, 2 large double bedrooms, great bathrooms and incredibly comfy sofas! The only thing to be aware of is that the parking space is about 30 yards from the house which is accessed down a pathway but it really wasn't a problem because the cul-de-sac the house in is so quiet. Wonderful place.
Superb spacious and homely house. Everything you could possibly need was provided. Lovely location with loads to do in the area. Beamish museum within walking distance and beautiful countryside within very easy driving distance.
Have stayed in this lovely house in November for 5 consecutive years so it feels very much like home. It is so well equipped, in great condition and is lovely and warm. The location is great for visiting Durham and Newcastle. As avid horse racegoers, we are in striking distance of many of the northern tracks. 5 stars every time!
Shutters is the most perfect cottage that we have rented. It met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. The layout and decor are very attractive. The bed and furnishings are very comfortable. The cottage is very well equipped. We particularly enjoyed having meals in the conservatory. The cottage is conveniently located and yet very private. The owner, Andréa, provides great information in advance & at the cottage, replies quickly to email and is a pleasure to deal with. We were doing walking in the Durham and Northumberland areas. Andréa gave us many helpful suggestions. We would love to be able to stay at Shutters again on a future visit to the area.
This has been our second stay and once again it's just perfect. For the first two days we chilled and didn't leave shutters. It was so cosy. Thank you Andrea for making it a wonderful break
