Interaction with guests
The week prior to your stay I will send you a one-page information sheet by email which has all the necessary details you will need for your stay. I don't live in the country and so won't be there to hand over keys and show you around, however, everything you need to know about Shutters is in an A-Z 'house-book' and includes things to 'see and do' in the area including information about where to eat and shop. If you would like to speak to me in person I am always there to help and I include my telephone details on my email correspondence. Enjoy your stay!

Have stayed in this lovely house in November for 5 consecutive years so it feels very much like home. It is so well equipped, in great condition and is lovely and warm. The location is great for visiting Durham and Newcastle. As avid horse racegoers, we are in striking distance of many of the northern tracks. 5 stars every time!

This has been our second stay and once again it's just perfect. For the first two days we chilled and didn't leave shutters. It was so cosy. Thank you Andrea for making it a wonderful break
