We arrived at Durham house on Thursday and the house was ready to go for our family get together. All the rooms were nice and en suite. The dining room had a huge table to fit everyone while eating and the bar area was where we could have fun playing pool. Obviously being November the weather wasn’t great but this house made the trip. Middlesbrough and Hartlepool are not far for driving and there are some good walks for the dogs and pubs for anyone that doesn’t want to use the in-house bar. In the summertime this place would be great as the seating area looked fab too! For big family/friend get together this is the place to rent.
Had a fantastic weekend with 17 family members and dogs. Spacious dining room, lovely lounge and comfortable beds. The bar and pool table provided great entertainment. Fabulous location within easy distance of local shops. Had a great weekend here celebrating my brothers special birthday. We also had the Hayloft which provided us with more space. Would definitely book this again!
This is an annual event for us. A week away with the children and grandchildren and what a place to stay !!! We've done a lot over the years and this is probably the best place we've had. Roomy, very well appointed and plenty to do. Pool, table tennis, darts and our own bar. 6 adults, 5 children and 1 dog all had a great time. With a large open space at the rear, and a secure gate, the dog had a whale of a time. Sedgfield is a good centre for trips out, so we had plenty to do. Thank you Lesley & Neil for being such good hosts.
I booked the Old Pub for our group of engineers working close by, Lesley and Neil couldn't be more helpful with ensuring a comfy and cosy home was waiting for the team at the end of a busy day.
Great facilities and we hope to return and stay again with the next project in the area.
Thanks so much guys, Jules xx
We visited the Durham House in September for 4 days. We were a group of 14 runners taking part in the Serpentine Race at Sedgefield.
It was a fantastic weekend in a wonderful house. The rooms were spacious and clean, tastefully decorated, with enough room for everyone.
The highlight was without doubt the community room on the ground floor , big enough for us all to dine together, also a bar and billiard table.
Outside in the grounds there was a barbecue area and seating for all of us.
We felt at home from the first moment we were there, and have already booked again for next year. The hosts were excellent, all our wishes being fullfilled, it couldn't have been better.
