Lovely comfortable place run by lovely warm friendly people. Bedroom has it all. Nice clean bed, two comfy chairs, tv, ensuite with shower. A little out of the way for a trip to Durham but well worth the travel and only 15 minutes in the car. We ate in the Kings Head which was about a 10 minute drive away,... More

This was our second stay at Oak Cottage, which gave us a welcome stop-over on our way from Northumberland back to Essex. The lovely owners are very welcoming and genuinely seem to enjoy meeting new people and looking after them. The bedroom was very comfortable; the decor traditional. Breakfast was one of the highlights. Not just because of the lovely... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Oak Cottage, had a nice big room with very modern bathroom and lovely views into the garden in the morning, during breakfast. Very pleasant, helpful hosts. One thing that really affected the stay was the mattress in the bed, it was really hard and we had problems sleeping on it - Would be good... More

My wife and I stayed one night with Mike and Kim on our way up to Edinburgh. We had a lovely large room and separate bathroom at the top of the stairs, both of which were spotlessly clean. Comfy armchairs were in the room, tea/coffee making facilities, TV and a good selection of brochures on local attractions. Delicious cooked breakfast... More

Everything you could ever want in a Restful nights stay away. Great location out of town enough to be really quiet, comfy bed and very clean accommodation throughout. The view from the breakfast room tops off the wonderful cooked breakfast and home made marmalade on toast. It is enough to make you change your holiday plans and stay longer!
