Great cottage, great week away.
The cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean on our arrival. It was very comfortable for us, and the dog for whom blankets were provided. The rear garden is secure which is essential with a dog like mine! The dog breeders at the back did make for some barking, but the noise was not excessive (kennel building is far enough away) and the windows are triple glazed, certainly didn't affect our holiday. The cottage is situated brilliantly for days out, we went to; Beamish, Seaham, Durham, High Force waterfall, Barnard Castle, and Gibside - all within around half an hour. We had a great week and would highly recommend.

Absolutely fabulous
We had a fabulous week's stay. Our second in Laurel cottage. Everything was provided we could wish for - a spotlessly clean home from home, with both conservatory and lounge as comfortable relaxing places. It is perfectly situated to visit many interesting places - and we did. Hadrian's Wall. Cragside, Durham and of course the beautiful Pennines are our favourites. Would recommend it to all. Thank you for giving us another great stay.

Very disappointed, on arrival the cottage was still being cleaned and we had to sit in the car for 25mins, it should have been ready at 4pm but wasn?t. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and comfortable, but sadly the barking dogs from the breeders next door that were kept in the field at the back of the cottage over shadowed everything. They barked morning noon and night. On two occasions we got up to no heating and no hot water, we rang the number for help on the first occasion and a gentleman came round to sort it out, on the second occasion we ended the holiday early and came home.

Absolutely excellent cottage
We had a fastastic holiday with our little jack russell in May at lovely 'Laurel Cottage'. The cottage is beautifully clean, nicely furnished and well equipped.We can highly recommend this cottage. It is in a good location to enjoy site seeing. We made our trip to visit our relatives who also enjoyed sitting in the lovely conservatory. We had all home comforts, in this spacious cottage, having a utility area with a washing machine and tumble dryer, the owner has thought of everything, even to the smallest detail. The beds are very comfortable with lovely bedding and gorgeous soft fluffy towels. This cottage how it is presented is a credit to the owner. We will be booking again next year.

Cottage stay
Our first stay in Durham and we found the cottage was well equipped, clean and functional and of a high standard.Unfortunately parking and noise were a bit of a problem as driveway on a sharp slope and limited parking in front of property. Noise from main road made sleeping difficult and barking dogs at the back were a bit of a nuisance.
