Wonderful property
We have just returned from our week at Drivers rest. The property is warm, comfortable and we'll equipped. The photographs do not do the location justice the views are stunning. Ann and John are very friendly and leave you to enjoy the holiday. There is a lot to see and do around the area. We had never been to Northumbria before but will definitely return to Drivers rest. We didn't want to leave.
