“Perfect centrally located apartment” Clements Wharf is centrally located, close to the centre of Durham and all it has to offer. The apartment is very well presented, cosy and very clean.
We arrived on the day around 11am, quite a few hours before normal check in time, but the managers had been very helpful in arranging for us to drop off our luggage and collect the keys, so that we could get on with enjoying our stay. We came to enjoy the Christmas Markets and can recommend a visit to the Cathedral, the food market held in the Cloisters was fantastic with lots of interesting festive goodies to choose from.
I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment to anyone who was intending visiting Durham.
“Excellent apartment, immaculate, only minutes walk to city centre attractions.” This apartment is immaculate. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Hosts Chris and Wendy welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Situated beautifully directly on the riverbank with balcony overlooking the river. Only a couple of minutes walk and you in the city centre. Thoroughly recommended.
Situated in the North East of England, this Cathedral city is full of charm. A bustling city centre lying within a loop of the River Wear, there's an abundance of history combined with modern excitements to be found. Book a holiday rental in Durham to experience the magic of the North East.
Enjoy this picturesque historic city, melding old with new and leading to delights for all.

Top Durham Travel Tips
Because of the congestion in the city centre, and the lack of parking options, a car is not the best way to get around. Public transport is pretty good, so why not leave the car at one of the city's Park and Ride stations and get the bus in to town?
For a fast-paced, exciting city break, packed with both historic and quirky finds, book your next holiday rental in Durham.

Black Dog House - Westgate - North Pennines - UK
Super very large family friendly cottage.
Cottage well exceeded our expectations, we stayed with own children and grand-children ranging from age 3yrs to 8yrs. Superb location with plenty to do close by.
Children especially enjoyed playing in the loft room with it's many toys and also splashing around in the water across the road behind the pub. The playground across the road was perfect for the younger children. Cottage was well equipped and had everything including thermos flasks when we went on a picnic. We also enjoyed some excellent meals out at the coach and horses in Eastgate and The Hare and Hounds across the road. Everyone enjoyed the scenic walks and cycling too. Great location, I'm sure that we will return again sometime in the future. …

Cosy stay with easy transport to Durham
We are a group of friends who stayed in Harry's House for 2 nights and we had a lovely stay in a cosy house with great facilities (especially the hot tub). Claire was really accommodating and we found the house to be clean and fairly well equipped. (It would have been good to have Kitchen roll and dustpan and brush) Transport into Durham was very easy on the bus and easy to find from the A1. We would definitely stay again. …
