Stayed with 3 friends so it was a bit cozy with 4 of us in there but we didn't spend loads of time there. I would definitely go back as a couple of with two couples. Plenty of room, kitchens great and two showers.

Taxi was only £8 into Durham. And there's two pubs round the corner from the apartment.

I'm sure I'll be back there at some point.

“Excellent place, even better hosts :)”

Stayed here with family and I have to say it was one of the best self-catering rental places I have been in. The hosts/owners Maxine and Tony were fabulous and very helpful. They had provided small 'extras' that made our stay more comfortable. The property is well located with ease of access to shopping areas/restaurants about a mile away. There is a tidy looking small garden at the rear of the property which we couldn't use due to bad weather but we look forward to making good use of it during our next visit. The place was very neat and tidy and overall, we were very satisfied. I would recommend this place. Thanks Maxine and Tony and hope to see you again sometime.

Not sure if I want to share this place with anyone but that wouldn't be fair to Maxine and Tony, who are the kindest most attentive hosts ever. We had a lovely welcome from them both including a basket of essentials . We had also ordered the breakfast pack which was more than enough for the four of us for the weekend. Everything in the apartment is well thought out and comfortable .....including the beds.! It's handy for buses and trips into Durham and further. We were there for the cricket, not too far away either. Nice little village with a small local shop just up the road and a great local ( the travellers rest ) with very good food. We had a short walk through the fields at the back of the apartment on Saturday, we could have ventured a bit further but it started to drizzle. Sure it would be much nicer on a sunnier day. We fully intend to return on our way up to Scotland later in the year, hope you'll have a vacancy....looking forward to seeing you then Maxine and Tony. We wish you every success in the future.
