We commenced our 5 weeks in northern England and Scotland in Durham after 29 hours of planes, airports, metro and train stations. This was a perfect place to start. Jill and Andy looked after us as if we were family. Nothing was too difficult. Great position from the train station, beautiful garden, lovely breakfasts planning our days from the books... More

We stayed at the Victorian Townhouse for eight nights during our spring holiday in Durham. We are a family of four and had booked one of the family rooms. The location is excellent, with the railway station and the bus station within walking distance. Still the rooms are very quiet and we had a lovely view into the garden. The... More

We spent one night in the Flambard Room at this B&B and our only disappointment was that we were not staying longer. The room was quite large, spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished. It even had a view of the cathedral. The bathroom was also great and a very good size. Jill and Andy were very helpful even allowing us... More

Very friendly and helpful. Large comfortable room with great view. We stayed in the Beaumont room. Food was plentiful and good choice. Good to see lots of fruit available. A good location for seeing Durham so long as you don't mind the last little steep bit. Durham is well worth a visit. Newcastle interesting but it was a bit hot... More

A little tricky finding them from the train station, but once we were pointed in the right direction it was easy. Andy and Jill were wonderful hosts. Had our bags waiting in our rooms because we arrived a bit early and left to explore Durham. The Flambard room was so comfortable and the bathroom so spacious. Breakfast had so much... More

Stayed here in the very comfortable ground floor Langley Room on a short visit to Durham.Appreciated being able to park outside and have no steps to climb other than the short flight up to the breakfast room where Jill and Andy serve a first class start to the day. The location is very good with only a short walk into... More
