A treasured escape from it all
A perfect location... quiet, peaceful countryside and beautiful views yet close enough to friendly country pubs and Durham City. Everything has been thought about to ensure the perfect stay, from shampoo and towels to a pizza cutter and bottle opener! The sofa bed is very comfortable too. We could have stayed in the hot tub all night and the fairy lit pergola was perfect on rainy evenings!
Imagine this - The toasty smell of the BBQ as you enjoy a glass of fizz in the hot tub. The sun slowly setting and warmth of summer on your back. Total relaxation in fresh countryside air. Come and stay with us! We have a variety of Summer dates on offer and look forward to welcoming you.
