Visitor Reviews


" A beautifully converted old building which is modern and comfortable and was cosily warm in cold weather. The setting is idyllic and views of Durham cathedral across the woods is something very special. This little gem can most definitely be recommended. "

Mrs W Bedfordshire

" A short, wildlife-rich, paved walk took two of us along the river and right into the centre of Durham, a perfectly wonderful city, in about 25 minutes. Cutting across a field and a footbridge took the other two to a conference on the main University Science site. A perfect location, which could have been miles from anywhere. The aerial display provided by the nesting swallows in the barn opposite was captivating! "

Dr B Leicestershire

" Beautiful cottage with imaculate furnishings and fittings. Very well renovated. One of the best cottages we have stayed in. "
