We cannot begin this review without thanking the charming hosts Kim and Mike for welcoming us in their nice cottage. Nice excellent BIG room with all facilities which one can expect. Apart from bed, tea & coffee facilities the room also has a nice spacious ensuite and also a couple of comfortable armchairs on which one can relax after a... 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.

We used this B&B as a base to explore Durham and Beamish and very pleased that we did so. Having arrived in the dark, we did not understand the comments about the views and the birds, but what a great place to eat a great breakfast. Very welcoming, informative hosts - hope to go back!

What a lovely couple Kim and Mike are, the welcome and hospitality could not have been better. Both were always most willing to offer suggestions on where to visit, a wealth of knowledge and some humour from Mike (especially as the phone lines were down at one time). A real tonic. Lovely breakfast overlooking a magnificent garden with lots of... More

Really enjoyed my stay, quiet, beautiful garden full of birds and an excellent breakfast. The scrambled eggs were the best I have ever had. I could not have asked for more, really friendly and very accommodating. I would highly recommend Oak Cottage, and I have only ever written a review once before, so it must be good. Hope to go...

I know we have said it before but this must be the place to stay if visiting this part of the world. Kim and Mike Foreman make you feel so special and welcome it's hard not to come back for more. Comfortable beds, great bathroom, always clean and fresh, lovely garden, great breakfast. We will be back, again.

Our room was extremely spacious with a couple of comfortable armchairs in which to browse a very interesting collection of books. As already mentioned in previous reviews, breakfast is an avian spectacular with an enviable number of specimens visiting the feeders. The breakfast itself is also rather good (all good quality local produce). I particularly enjoyed the scrambled eggs. Kim... More
