The owner was easy to contact as regards key collection on our arrival. Daniel had already switched the heating on so it was quite warm.
The house was clean and tidy. Despite being located on an estate it was very quiet and the whole area has a pleasant atmosphere.
There are many shops within walking distance so grocery shopping is no problem.
Sainsburys Local for instance is 7 minutes walk away.
The city of Durham is only 10 minutes away by bus.
If you fancy a day on the beach it is a short drive by car and parking is free.
Durham is well worth visiting more than once.
