  • "Well placed apartment on the ring road with easy access into the centre."

    A very well equipped kitchen the only thing we were missing was a cheese grater! We will use this apartment again as it is close to our friends. Handy shopping centre close by and small shop within easy walking distance which sells most things (hubby forgot his toothbrush!). Friendly neighbours too.

  • "This apartment is an excellent base for exploring the area."

    Durham is a 10 minute drive away and is a fabulous historic city, plus the coast and countryside around are equally accessible and worth visiting...Seaham, Whitburn, Herrington Country Park, Finchale Priory, Beamish. The apartment has everything you need to be comfortable...well equipped, great shower, and super comfy bed. Secure parking and reliable wifi were advertised and delivered. I would visit again, but there is a big world out there!

  • "A very well equipped apartment which provided a great base for a holiday visiting both the Northumberland coast and Hadrians Wall."

    Easy access to the A1 made travelling a pleasure. The only disadvantage is as mentioned by a previous reviewer that the kitchen requires an extra socket for the toaster. Otherwise the kitchen is well laid out and equipped with everything required . The proximity to the Arnison Centre with Sainsbury's Lidl etc was also useful as it allowed us to travel light and buy food when we arrived,and also but anything we needed on our way back daily.

About the location


Chester-le-Street 11 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 21 miles;

Situated in one of the most beautiful counties of England, Durham city is one of the jewels in England’s crown. Dominated by the historic centre, a World Heritage Site, the city is home to magnificent Durham Cathedral, with its breathtaking vaulted ceiling and splendid architecture. The cathedral, the final resting place of the Venerable Bede, is one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in the whole of Europe. Durham Castle stands side by side with the cathedral, on a prominent hilltop site, encircled by the wooded slopes of the River Wear below. The city itself offers elegant buildings and fascinating narrow streets with excellent shopping, eating and drinking to suit all tastes. Add to that the ease of access to the rest of this historic county, “Land of the Prince Bishops”, and Durham has much to offer the discerning traveller, from Medieval castles to marvellous landscapes and scenic walks. Durham city is the ideal location for discovering this beautiful county.
