On the doorstep of history, in the vibrant centre of Durham:

Moonlight Apartment is on the second floor, overlooking the historic streets of Durham and next to the River Wear. The Cathedral and Castle are a 5-minute stroll away, which will take you past the city's interesting shops and wide variety of restaurants. There's plenty of room to relax in the exceptional quality furnishings in this light and airy apartment. It has a 5-star designer interior, and free secure parking. This is the perfect place to revive yourself after a hard day attacking the culture, shops and restaurants of Durham.

There's a Victorian-style free-standing slipper bath, and a separate hydromassage shower enclosure.

The main bedroom has a spacious Art Deco-inspired double bed, complemented by a generous wardrobe and chest of drawers.

There's a flat-screen digital television so you can laze in bed and watch TV.

A spiral staircase leads from the living area to a second bedroom upstairs. Here you'll find ample space for two further guests, who can choose to sleep in two single beds, configurable as a double if they're feeling friendly.

The brand new kitchen facilities are second-to-none. There's everything from a freezer to a fish slice. When night falls, you can set the mood and have a candlelit dinner at the elegant glass dining table.

The friendly local owners of this boutique-style property provide everything you could require for ultimate relaxation.

Northern England region

Northern England offers everything from world-class culture, vibrant nightlife, award winning dining and much more! Minutes away from coast and countryside you can go from relaxing at the coast to soaking up world-class; from getting back in-touch with nature at a woodland retreat to shopping 'till you drop at Europe's largest indoor shopping and leisure complex, we guarantee that 'boring' - that awful little word - will slip quietly from your vocabulary while you're far too busy to even notice.

It's rare to find anywhere so diverse that amazes visitors at every turn with its dialogue between ultra-modern and ancient, urban and rural, tradition and innovation and the world-class and well-known with all that is local, unique, unspoiled and full of character. World-class culture, vibrant nightlife, award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, fantastic shopping and acclaimed architecture are linked here, as nowhere else, by the famous Northern spirit which unites our unique region.


Durham City, home to the iconic Durham Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site, sits at the heart of an extraordinary county where breathtaking countryside and dramatic coastline are dotted with cultural treasures.

Escape to the peace and tranquillity of the Durham Dales and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to relax and unwind or get outdoors and active. Or experience the rugged beauty of High Force waterfall and the Durham Heritage Coast.

Step back in time and discover Durham's fascinating history and heritage at award-winning attractions including Beamish Museum and Locomotion - The National Railway Museum at Shildon. And if you crave culture, you can't get much better than the incredible collections and contemporary exhibitions at The Bowes Museum.

Durham has a packed year-round calendar of events to enjoy too, with tickets for the Lindisfarne Gospels exhibition going on sale in March, and Durham also plays host to The Ashes in 2013 at the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground.

Take a short break in Durham and discover the cobbled streets of the city, where stylish boutiques and quirky craft shops jostle for attention alongside big name brands, whilst our lovely market towns offer their own unique shopping experiences. Take some time out in a cosy pub next to the open fire, or blow the cobwebs away on a walk through the changing landscape.

And just when you think you've seen it all, Durham will continue to delight with hidden gems around every corner.

"Potentially fabulous but needs some tweaks"

We stayed here for three nights over New Year. Generally, it is a pleasant, characterful flat with quirky, modern décor, well-equipped and with an excellent information folder with instructions for h… More

Thanks for your helpful review: we do aim for the fabulous, clearly we have a little bit of maintenance to do. Normally it's me (Ray) who admits guests and checks everything, including the temperature, beforehand but on this occasion I'd had to delegate the job to our cleaner. She is lovely but notoriously overheated, and has her own bizarre view of acceptable temperature. I've now talked to her about it. My belief is that the shower does work 100%, but the controls are perhaps a bit stiff so I'll attend to that of course. The margarine should not have been there at all - left by the previous guest; the jam and marmalade issue is one to which we are seeking a non-wasteful solution! I understand the butter provided was, thankfully, pristine. We'll prune the bottle collection I think...

"The cherry on the top is the parking!"

Durham as I discovered on a previous visit is hideous for parking so the real cherry on the top of this great apartment is the parking directly underneath the apartment block. It gives you the confide… More

Thanks for your enthusiastic review of Moonlight Apartment. You've reminded me I really must update the website after 7 years - fashions change, and technology advances, even in toilet seats and showers!...

The apartments we had were fine but unfortunatly quite dirty.. which we weresurprised about.The TV in the single bedroom didnt work and as luck falls was probablythe only one we wanted. (My 14 year ol… More

Thank you for taking the trouble to write your review - naturally I'm worried that our cleanliness fell short of the mark during your stay. The cleaning standards for the 5-star Visit Britain rating against which we are assessed are pretty rigorous, and that's the standard we aim to maintain throughout the year. Happily we have just had our annual inspection from Visit Britain and have kept our five stars! I can only think that our cleaners missed something this time and I didn't pick it up either: sorry. One of them has just produced a baby, so possibly her attention was elsewhere...
