Description from owner


Please note we are able to work within government guidelines regarding social distancing for larger groups. It is important to note that hotels, restaurants and pubs are allowed to host groups of more than 26 guests providing they are able to maintain social distancing between family bubbles.

We have separate bedrooms and toilets for separate families. We ask you to stay within your family groups whilst in the property and continue to social distance in shared areas . Only one family at a time should be in the kitchen area. CONTACT US DIRECTLY FOR MORE INFORMATION.

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 25 people, The Hay Loft (sleeps 6) and The Croft (sleeps 3) are available at a reduced rate.

“Best holiday in a pub!!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2019

What an impressive place! An amazing house with the added bonus of a fully equipped bar and a beer garden! 14 of us stayed here - 8 adults and 6 children, there was plenty of space inside and out, beautiful bedrooms most with en-suite and fully (above the norm) equipped for that many people. Lesley and Neil are the most helpful and informative couple, they expressed to us that they wanted to make sure that people felt at home in their house - they so accomplished this and more! Sedgefield is also such a pretty village with good walks close by. We would definitely be visiting again! Thank you.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words, we are so pleased you enjoyed yourself. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sedgefield!

“Durham House”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2019

Group of 6 adults and 6 older teenagers stayed in Durham House over the Easter weekend. Couldn't fault it, we had a fantastic time. There was ample space for everyone and the property was very clean. Six large, nicely decorated spacious bedrooms with plenty of storage space and TVs in each. Ensuites and bathroom modern and clean. Fully equipped kitchen with more than enough cupboard space, crockery and utensils for a large group. The 2 dishwashers came in very handy! Dining room was big and the table was huge so we could all eat together. The living room was very comfy and spacious and we liked that the bifold doors opened up to the garden area where we could sit outside. Games room was a definite hit with the kids and it was great that we had our own private car park. The bar area was great we had lots of fun in there. The owner Neil was really nice and friendly, he made sure everything was ok for us in the house, and recommended things to do in the area. He even gave us some discount vouchers for Beamish Museum! The location was excellent only 30 mins to Durham and the village itself was very pretty and had all the local shops you needed. I would definitely recommend this property and stay here again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your recommendation. We are so pleased you had a good time, as we know ourselves how difficult it can be to keep teenagers entertained! Hopefully we will see you soon for your next get together, Neil and Lesley
