Our room was spacious, cosy and spotless and our hosts were attentive and gracious, making sure every aspect of making our stay perfect, was met. Our breakfast was fresh and delicious, looking out towards the trees and birds, woodpeckers, tits, jays... More

We had a four night stay at Oak Cottage which is situated in a very quiet village. Kim and Mike are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. You receive a warm welcome on arrival and it continues from there. The room is lovely - en suite is excellent and everything is spotlessly clean; it is... More

Wonderful welcome. Superb bedroom with lots of space to relax. Breakfast was served in conservatory with views over the gardens. Hosts eagerly offered advice on places to eat and attractions in the area, giving directions as to how to find them. Would have no hesitation in recommending Oak Cottage.

We were very well looked after by Kim and Mike during our 2 night stay. Our breakfasts were lovely, and the view of a lovely private green valley, full of song birds, started our days in very fine style. The closest city is Durham, which we think is lovely. Our only criticisms were probably irrelevant to the vast majority of... More

There is only 1 room at Oaklands which is spacious and spotlessly clean, with tea and coffee making facilities.A very quiet spot with welcoming hosts and an excellent breakfast overlooking a beautiful garden and open countryside. It was a bit of a drive to find an evening meal, especially in the dark along narrow country lanes, but we were given... More

Small B&Bs rarely come better than this. For only £50 per night, my wife and I spent 2 very comfortable nights here. Very pleasant comfortable and well equipped room. Kim and Mike are charming hosts and provide an excellent breakfast in their conservatory looking out into their lovely garden. Free WiFi is available, although connection in our room was a... More

A nice return visit. Lovely room, king size bed, free wifi, freeview, beautiful gardens, adorable hosts and the best English Breakfast. The only problem we were so relaxed we slept most of the time we were there. Will be back.
