A very comfortable and quiet apartment. It is spacious, modern and very well equipped. It is in a good location on a quiet farm but just off the motorway near to Durham and the Beamish Museum. Highly recommended.

My second stay at Plawsworth Hall and I have to repeat that it was a great experience ! Would always stay there whenever I go to Durham as I cannot imagine a more idyllic place to stay. A very historic site and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. The cottages are warm and comfortable, spotless and well equipped.Good value!

I needed a base for visiting friends and family in the area. From Plawsworth I could easily travel in all directions. On a couple of occasions I used public transport - bus stop less than 5 minutes walk away. The apartment had everything I needed and was very clean. The grounds were very well maintained. Had the weather been better... More

we have two little girls and we've been back to Plawsworth 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years because it works out great. High quality but simple accommodation with plenty space, warm cottages, travel cots and high chairs on request and great outdoor space including a field that has lambs in the spring where you can feed the...

I stay here almost weekly now whilst on business in the area and so long as Harry has availability, I'd rarely stay anywhere else in the region. The accommodation is spotless, always nice and warm on arrival (important through the winter!), is comfortable and has everything you need. The variation in accommodation type and size means there is something for... More

We stayed at Plawsworth for 3 weeks in September and October. As my husband is suffering a life limiting illness, we wanted somewhere his family could come and visit. We were amazed at the beautiful peaceful setting and the quality of the fittings. Nothing was too much trouble for Harry the owner, he did everything possible to make our stay... More

Just stayed here over the weekend in a 3 bedroomed house. It was clean, neutrally decorated and had everything we needed. Located off the main road in a very quiet area with plenty of shops a short drive away. Would recommend to anyone who needs somewhere to stay up this way.

We were looking for cottages in Durham, when a friend told us about Plawsworth Hall Cottages and we booked a cottage for 6 people. Was there with family from 24th of June to 27 th of June 2015. Beautiful Place. Well furnished. A very comfortable experience. Will go and stay longer. Loved being there.

I have been staying for quite lengthy times since early February this year and have found these cottages fantastic, as is the host Harry Johnston. Nothing is a bother to him, and always a bright smile. I have had 1, 2 and 3 bed cottages at my disposal as I have sometimes had colleagues with me as we worked on... More

We stayed here whilst house hunting and exploring the area ready for a house move. The apartment we had was spacious with everything you could possible need included (apart from towels) beautiful views across the countryside and within easy reach of Durham and Newscastle. We would highly recommend.
