Description from owner


Recently and sympathetically renovated from a former public house, this property is ideal for families and groups of people looking for a base within a large rural village less that 100 yds from local shops/village pubs and restaurants. Stylish and comfortable, it boasts both traditional elegance and modern living, ensuring you have a relaxing stay.

For birthday parties and anniversaries or simply to catch up with old friends, Durham House simply provides the ideal setting within one fantastic space.

The ground floor consists of a large dining area with window seating. Seating for everyone ensures that there is ample opportunity to spend quality time together, whilst enjoying meals or playing games. Serve a pint at your very own Nag's Head bar complete with pool table! We can provide kegs of lager, real ale and cider at an additional cost. A truly unique experience.

Adults can relax in the sitting room away from the kids, where folding-doors lead out into a enclosed seating area complete with BBQ, comfortable seating and picnic tables. The kitchen is fully equipped with all expected mod-cons and is of adequate size to cater for larger groups. The two ovens and two dishwashers ensure that cooking is simple and easy, giving you more time to chill with family and friends

Durham House sleeps 16. For bookings of 17 to 22 people, an annexe is available at a reduced cost, subject to availability. Please contact us directly for further information.

The outside area is gated ensuring children can play safety. There is a large outdoor seating area with BBQ.


All rooms are either double or twin. The additional beds are pull out beds which can be made up to suit your party. Please see detailed floor plan so you can see the bedroom layout in more detail. All bedrooms have their own bath/shower with the exception of bed 5 and 6 who share a large bathroom with corner bath.
