“A must place to stay”
Reviewed October 12, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

This is the second time we have visited Plum Tree Cottage this year and we are already planning our next trip. It is just the perfect place to relax and re charge. I would highly recommend anyone to go. If I could give 6 stars I would. Thanks Bev for everything.

Bev was an Amazing host, very welcoming and so nice .. The cottage is designed brilliantly, with state of the art technology maintaining the classical cottage design.. the location is breathtaking next to the river with an amazing scenery..
The host made our stay even more amazing with her special care for our 1 year old little girl with the infant new furniture..
Bev proved to be a 5 star luxury host with her attitude and professionalism on top all of that ..
highly highly recommended ..
would love to come again

“Loved it!”
Reviewed September 3, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

We had a fantastic time staying at plum tree. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to relax in each night and wake up to the sound of the river each morning. Beverley is the perfect host, so warm, welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be returning.

“Ideal place for our 25th anniversary getaway!”
Reviewed August 27, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Stylish cottage with a fantastic host in Bev. From her meet and greet to seeing us off after an amazing few days we were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the cottage as a base for our anniversary celebrations. The setting was superb - lovely having breakfast outside with the river running below in a very secluded setting. We had to have a fire one evening even though it wasn't cold just because it felt so cosey. The showers were fantastic. The cottage allowed us to explore the local area as well as head into Durham City where we met 28 years ago whilst at University. Would recommend wholeheartedly!

“Perfect weekend away!”
Reviewed May 6, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

I am so glad we booked Plum Tree Cottage for our bank holiday weekend- what a stunning place to stay, relax & explore. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and near some lovely circular walks by the river and surrounding countryside. We took our 5 month old puppy and he felt very at home after our lovely welcome and dog biscuit from Bev.
The weather was stunning so we were able to make use of the bbq and big garden. We will definitely be back - thank you Bev & Mark xx

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed May 3, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Honestly cannot fault a single thing about our stay. The cottage is beautifully done, in a fantastic setting, peaceful and relaxing. Bev has created something really special here, and was super helpful both when I messed up the dates, and during our stay. We will be back for sure!

“Perfect get away”
Reviewed April 12, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Stayed at the cottage on 2 wet miserable days in April. Luckily the cottage was beyond our expectations and enabled us to have 2 lovely relaxing days in a perfect cottage. Couldn't fault anything, Bev has created the perfect product, down to the tiniest of details. We really couldn't fault anything and therefore are looking forward to returning very soon. 5+ star all the way.
