“Fabulous - you must try it!!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a fabulous stay. Everything you want and more! Where else could you be sat in a hot tub at 2am in the morning with a heated hut for rest breaks and beautiful skys above! Absolute heaven I could've stayed there indefinitely! All your initial needs are there, lovely and clean I could've lived in the bathroom! Will definitely be visiting again thank you x

“Very comfortable, Claire & Peter really looked after us and the wood fired hot tub was great fun.”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Harrys House is a comfortable 3 bedroomed end terraced house in Carrville just outside Durham. The owners, Claire and Peter live next door and are both very pleasant and helpful.
There is parking on a driveway at the back for one car and other cars can be parked on the street outside. A large wood fired hot tub is located in a well screened area in the garden, it took an hour or two for it to get up to temperature but it was great fun. Peter provided instructions and kept the wood pile well stocked.
There are also 6 chickens in the garden and we were able to help ourselves to fresh eggs every morning.
There was a good wifi internet service and we were able to bring our pet dog.

“Lovely, comfortable Home from Home......They go the extra mile.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Booked for hubbys 40th birthday as a surprise weekend, stayed with hubby, 2 children & parents.
On arrival we were greeted by the lovely Claire.
Lovely little extra of food hamper inc everything you would need to get started, also a birthday card for the hubby.....nice touch!
The house was lovely & clean & comfortable, plenty of room for us all.
Nearby is Durham city centre which had the christmas market on when we visited, we also visited beamish which is short drive away.
There is a folder with lots of local info in which was really handy.
And the hottub was a lovely extra......couple of glitches at first but sorted & was not a problem for us.....actually gave us all a good giggle!!
Would definately recommend Harrys House..........its the little extras that make all the differance.
