Just returned from a great stay in one of the junior suite cottages at The Durham Ox called ‘Field Cottage’. We had our own front door and little entrance hall which is great for leaving muddy boots and coats. The bedroom is upstairs and although it had a real country feel it also had great modern touches like a flat screen tv, DVD library, proper ground coffee. The bathroom is gorgeous with a waterfall shower and huge bath. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on!
We booked dinner in the pub and had a fab meal of mussels to start followed by a chateaubriand steak platter to share. Unfortunately we were too full to try any of the puddings but they looked amazing. We did book our table before we arrived which I would recommend as it was pretty busy and the food is too fabulous to miss out on.
Breakfast is served in the dining area of the pub and it was a real treat to have a full English and tasty bacon butties from local suppliers and a huge pot of fresh coffee.
We loved this place and will definitely be returning. I think ‘Field’ cottage is probably one of the best of the small cottages to stay in as ‘Blue’ was beside the car park entrance so it might have traffic noise and also the first two cottages back onto the outside terrace so again you might get disturbed by late night drinkers.
This place is a fabulous cosy pub with lovely friendly staff, amazing food and set in beautiful countryside, you can’t go wrong!
