I was nearing the end of a fairly long trip when I came here and found this clean and comfortable nest to be most welcome. It is quite close to the Cathedral and Castle and a very welcoming pub as well as the train station....More

From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome. Not really sure why people are confused with parking as owner sorts it all out for you. Will definitely stay here again. Breakfast was amazing and all staff are so helpful.

About
Description
17 century English Heritage Listed Building- restored and decorated to the highest standards. en-suite rooms - with views of castle and cathedral the others looking over the historic street of Crossgate - one of ...More the medieval routes where the ancient road from England to Scotland forded the River Wear and on which the city was originally founded. The house is the closest residential property of all to the town centre and is only a few minutes walk from the castle and cathedral , the historic centre , shopping streets and restaurants. This can mean that the street is sometimes lively and noisy at night usually at weekends due to the fact that we are a prestigious university city with many boisterous young people out and about. We do however have double glazing and the highest quality beds to help you have a goodnight sleep before a full English breakfast cooked fresh to order with cereals , juices , and freshly cut fruit salad.

The Cathedral is close to the rail station. Should be no problem depending on train times.
