We were traveling through the area of Durham and needed a bed for the night! What we got was a lot more! Perfect rest, it's very quiet and a nice view from the window of the beautiful landscape of Durham. Parking is very secure in the back of the house. It's cozy room, super nice breakfast and very kind host.... More

Just have to reiterate everything jojo550 said. We stayed a few weeks earlier in I think the same room and agree about those funny things happening....yes, our TV did come on by itself! It's absolutely a wonderful place to stay and Liz and hubby provide the very best possible hospitality. The accommodation is comfortable, welcoming and homely and the history... More

This is a wonderful haunting experience, I loved this timeworn building, with all its realistic furniture. This building filled all my senses, to the point where the T.V. turned on by itself and my husband felt like the duvet was being pulled off him in the middle of the night. Liz's service, charm and breakfast's are amazing. You really couldn't... More

This is a superb farm house guest house with four super rooms for B&B accommodation in a relaxing rural setting with great walks along old railway track paths or into Durham City just 35 minutes on foot. Liz, the proprietor, is very welcoming and cooks a sumptuous full English breakfast! A really exceptional place to stay. Dogs are also welcome... More

We've stayed here a few times over the years and Broom Farm never lets us down. Always a warm welcome, always comfortable and still the best breakfast anywhere (unless you're vegan, or on a diet)! It's a lovely place to stay, ideally situated within easy reach of Durham city and we always recommend it to friends. Our favourite B&B!

The host is the loveliest and very knowledgeable, however the décor definitely needs updating. The bedroom was quite clean, but the bathroom wasn't and the shower had to be taken off the holder and held by hand at a specific angle to get warm or hot water. The breakfast was ok, pretty average, don't agree with having to write what... More

Very friendly people. We messed them around a bit due to getting a few punctures on our bikes and arriving late but they were very accommodating and made us feel at home. We put our bikes in the garage and were up early the next morning to head off.

I have had the pleasure of staying here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed, first on my list if i need to travel to this part of England. In a rural area on the outskirts of Durham City it is an old farmhouse decorated in a style to suit, quiet with off road parking and a... More

Whilst the host cannot be faulted being very welcoming and friendly, the building itself needs a bit of attention. We loved the breakfast, which clearly had quality ingredients, and the room was spacious but the bed was too short for me, and the mattress was very soft so I can't say I slept well. Although the window was open when... More
