    out of 10

    Durham Cottage was a lovely place to stay over Christmas week. We were a family group aged from 18 months to 97 years. So many good points: Large enough open plan living area for five adults and one toddler; Kitchen well equipped; Washing machine; Bathroom and shower room; Decorated Christmas tree!!! Fantastic view and outdoor areas; Hot tub with view; Great swimming pool; Underfloor heating - perfect temperature. Be aware: No provisions (except box of biscuits / chocolate and bottle of wine, 2 loo rolls and 2 dishwasher tablets), so you need to bring everything you will need from loo paper to tea and milk (Sainsbury deliver!)

    Very good place, would highly recommend to anyone. People are very friendly and helpful



    out of 10

    Fantastic cottage, great facilities, beautiful and clean. The only down side is WiFi goes quick, whilst watching a movie it went off so we had to pay for more. Would definitely recommend for families or friends, the cottages are perfect. We’ll definitely be back .

    Had the best weekend for my husbands birthday. The cottage itself was spacious for 4 adults and 2 children. The hot tub was perfect just outside the back door looking over the beautiful view and so nice and warm and the pool was also clean and warm too. Would definitely recommend



    out of 10

    We had a fantastic week in Durham Cottage - 2 adults, 4 teenagers. Plenty of space in the cottage, lovely views from the garden and hot tub. The pool was a great bonus. Terrific hosts too... left us alone but were there when we needed them.
