Reviewed January 30, 2018 for a stay in November 2017

Visited for the first time in November 2017. Made immediately to feel at home by Claire & Peter can't wait to be back again in March.
Cottage is so cozy & the hot tub is amazing.

What a fabulous place harry's house durham is . Gardens are secluded massive hedges. Lovely hot, hot tub . Bar and bbq with changing hut/den with tv and twinkling lights lighting up at night in the garden . Spacious 3 bed house sleeps 9. Off street parking .Plus living dining room . Plenty equipment. Tv washer,fridge freezer vacuum iron n board. Utensils etc . House is lovely and clean . Dogs allowed and left bowls, bed and pooh bags
Claire leaves robes toiletries and towels. Cleaning and washing products and a starter pack of essentials. There is fresh eggs which you can collect yourself from the chickens in the garden. And boy do they taste so different from the bought ones. Everything is thought of. well done

“Fab Pamper party”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Staxed with my 3 friends for a pamper party for my birthday, absolutely loved Harris House, everything is there for the perfect stay, we there you have children or dogs, or just staying for a chilled bit away. Hit tub was fab and so handy having the changing room in the summer house. Looking to stay again in Oct for a friend's birthday but unfortunately fully booked, so will stay at a late date.

“Relaxing break in a home from home”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Claire was always a pleasure to deal with and we settled in straight away in this house. The hot tub was used every day and we loved the garden although we couldn't get the full benefit as winter cold was coming in....
Comfortable house, kids had a great time and Durham was a short bus ride away for some exploring. Our dog was welcomed too and she loved meeting the chickens and Claire's cat!
Will return!

“Enjoyed our stay!!”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Had a very warm welcome. Claire received us personally from the Train St. The Cottage was absolutely gorgeous! The 3 room were very spacious and there was so much stuff in the Cottage to use.
The location was quite close to a Spar, walkable distance.
Claire has a very gorgeous White Norwegian Forest Cat.
