I stayed at Moor End while my daughter was at a residential visit at Durham University. It proved to be an excellent choice and a real oasis after a 5 hour drive. The owners could not have been more friendly, helpful or accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.
The en-suite bedroom was tastefully furnished, clean and spacious, fully equipped, well lit, and even offered free wi-fi. The dining room was prettily decorated and inviting, with a very tranquil atmosphere and delicious food. Facilities nearby include food shops, chemist, cashpoint, post office, and takeaway. Good quality, good value lunches and evening meals are available at a restaurant 2 min drive away (no need to book), or refreshments at the local pub. In addition, there is secure and free parking available at Moor End, with a park & ride just up the road if needed. Access to/from the A1M is quick and easy, and a 5-10 minute (depending on “rush hour” traffic) drive takes you into Durham itself. If I have to go back to Durham, I shall definitely stay here again. Basically, if you need to stay in Durham, do yourself a favour and just book here for a pleasant and relaxing visit. You won’t be disappointed. (NB Sat nav may guide you to the wrong house, so look out for the Sportsman’s Arms pub, and don’t go to the wrong No 8 opposite the shops further up the road!). Enjoy.
