More like a studio apartment albeit without the kitchen. Comfortable armchairs in the room make this an excellent B&B for a relaxing break. Wonderful breakfast complete with homemade preserves overlooking garden leading down to river with many varieties of birds including woodpecker all having their breakfast as well ! Attentive welcoming hosts.

We just had the one night in this lovely comfortable home, the full English breakfast was excellent and such a pleasant experience to sit in the conservatory watching the birds in the garden. The proprietors were most welcoming and accommodating, and very knowledgeable of the area, this really was a lovely B&B.

Needed a place to stay for one night but forgot about the Great North run. Left it till the last minute and everywhere was around £120. Found this place by chance and so glad we did. Just the one room which was perfect. The hosts made us feel so welcome and were there if we needed them. Breakfast was delightful...

Stopped here for four nights whilst our daughter graduated from Durham University.

The hosts are delightful and were very welcoming. They pointed me in the direction of dinner in a neighbouring village and were spot on with warnings about portion sizes. Breakfast was fantastic (no need for lunch) and the unfolding entertainment of feeding birds of all types was just fantastic.
