We all loved this apartment. Beautiful rooms, gorgeous terrace, and great location. The owners were very helpful, and the apartment provided all the 'bits' we needed but didn't want to pack. We've already recommended this apartment to people, and would happily stay here again. Thankyou, we loved staying here x
The apartment is well placed by the river with easy access to Durham city. You can walk over the bridge to city centre , which has many restaurants and bars. The apartment is contemporary and has all mod cons, Nespresso machine is very useful and easy to use.
Chris and Wendy are very nice and helpful , changed the duvet and supplied a fan as we were hot at night. They are always happy to help if you have a problem.

We arrived as two separate couples to celebrate a a significant anniversary between us. We could not have chosen a better property or venue. The welcome by Wendy on our arrival was warm and informative without being too overbearing. The apartment was absolutely as described and to see the rowing boats going by immediately underneath the balcony was a bonus. Such a short walk to the beautifiul city of Durham and its cathedral. To add to our enjoyment, Wendy and Chris had even arranged good weather and the Durham Regatta! Would we stay again? Of course we would and probably will!
Just back from a short 3-night trip with my two teenagers. The apartment was well-equipped and in the perfect location, being walking distance from the city centre. It was a delight to watch the rowers from the balcony and of course, Durham itself was a brilliant place to explore. Despite it's central location, we found the apartment quiet and peaceful, a great place to return to in the evening.
The owners were extremely obliging, and when - on the morning of departure - my car had a flat battery, they were very helpful and put me at my ease as AA were called, phone calls made, coffee offered etc. This was very much appreciated.
We have just returned from a lovely short break with friends at this beautiful apartment. The apartment was very well equipped, lovely furnishings and the complimentary wine, nibbles and milk etc were much appreciated. We also appreciated the offer from Chris to collect and return us to the train station and the flexibility over the checkout time. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made very welcome. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the rowers and having a glass of wine, and it was an easy walk to nearby pubs and restaurants and local attractions when we wanted to go out.
The only slight niggles we had were that the second bedroom was a twin (not a double as in the description) and we couldn't get the coffee maker to work, but that was probably us! The lounge was also a little chilly at night but we managed to use the fan facility on the heater. However, we would definitely come back and would highly recommend this apartment to others.
