The location was very good and the property was outstanding!
Mr Bardsley

The cottage was fantastic with large rooms, a lovely log burner and beautiful views. The property is nice and silent at night and the showers were lovely and hot. The owners were the most attentive and friendly people, we will be back.
Miss Doxford

Had an excellent time, it was a lovely cosy cottage which was warm throughout. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The hot tub was good even in freezing temperatures, the surroundings were nice and the log fire in the lounge was a very nice feature and essential during the winter. Would definitely stay again!
Mr Clarkson

The accommodation was the best thing about our holiday. We loved Durham and it was beautiful but the accommodation was outstanding!
