    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    A comfortable cottage in Durham City, within easy walking distance to the City Centre, Cathedral and University. The cottage is a grade11 listed building in the Gilesgate conservation area facing on to the green with plenty of free parking.
    It is a great location for exploring Durham City and the surrounding area. Fern Cottage is firm favourite with parents visiting their sons or daughters at Durham University and the cottage has everything need to make a meal for them during the stay. The cottage has a small private courtyard at the rear.
    There is a supermarket, a decent pub with food, a fish and chip shop all within a couple of minutes walk of the property. The local bus service is quite good and so a car is not needed to get around.
    Fern Cottage is inspected annually by Visit Britain...

Had the weather been better (i.e. warmer and dryer) we would have enjoyed sitting in the outdoor space off the kitchen.... more
