Lovely, quiet place to stayWarm welcome to a traditional farm house. Room was large and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean and nice little touches like fresh milk, and ground coffee for using in your room. Heating was on when I arrived late afternoon, so room and bathroom at a nice temperature.

Explore Durham's Superb Historic Landmarks and Museums

The two main focal points of this photogenic riverside city are its magnificent Norman cathedral and castle, both of which have earned Durham a place on the exclusive UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

Durham is also home to an elegant botanical garden, and an impressive collection of Asian-themed historic artefacts at the Oriental Museum. For more family fun, head to Diggerland UK, a superb construction-themed park where you can drive diggers and safely operated earth-moving vehicles.

Spend the Afternoon at Auckland Castle

This fine historic landmark is one of the finest medieval houses in Britain, dating back to the era of William the Conqueror. See its enchanting Throne Room and Dining Room, admire its beautiful painting collections, then explore the scenic parkland and spot the deer.
