Would without a doubt come back to the foresters, the rates are excellent value for money and the breakfast was perfect in every sense.Clean rooms and linen comfortable beds we were even asked what time we would like our breakfast served, what more could you ask for! Top marks.

Lovely sunday dinners and friendly staff who go out of their way to help . Been 3 times and always went away full and happy. You can sit downstairs in the bar or in a dedicated lunch room. Car parking is at the side with plenty of free spaces.

You would be hard pressed to find a better B&B in the area. The rooms are large, spotless and have great views. The owners are really lovely people who make you feel very welcome. The breakfasts are huge with top quality ingredients, my favourite is the mushroom omelette. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Had a two night stay here. My room was lovely. King size bed and the room was spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much trouble for Jim and Denise . The food was delicious. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Will most definitely stay here again on our next visit to Durham! Wishing you continued success. Denna xx
