Just back from a short 3-night trip with my two teenagers. The apartment was well-equipped and in the perfect location, being walking distance from the city centre. It was a delight to watch the rowers from the balcony and of course, Durham itself was a brilliant place to explore. Despite it's central location, we found the apartment quiet and peaceful, a great place to return to in the evening.
The owners were extremely obliging, and when - on the morning of departure - my car had a flat battery, they were very helpful and put me at my ease as AA were called, phone calls made, coffee offered etc. This was very much appreciated.
We have just returned from a lovely short break with friends at this beautiful apartment. The apartment was very well equipped, lovely furnishings and the complimentary wine, nibbles and milk etc were much appreciated. We also appreciated the offer from Chris to collect and return us to the train station and the flexibility over the checkout time. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made very welcome. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the rowers and having a glass of wine, and it was an easy walk to nearby pubs and restaurants and local attractions when we wanted to go out.
The only slight niggles we had were that the second bedroom was a twin (not a double as in the description) and we couldn't get the coffee maker to work, but that was probably us! The lounge was also a little chilly at night but we managed to use the fan facility on the heater. However, we would definitely come back and would highly recommend this apartment to others.
We were very well looked after - with Molton Brown Shower and Bath items, a lovely welcome basket with wine and nibbles really added a touch of luxury and made us feel very welcome.
Its a great little set up watching the rowers from the balcony as well as the world go by.
The only small thing was I had to give the water tank boost to heat it up for a bath as the hot water ran out quite quickly in bath terms but had been shown where this was and it might be required so not a major thing at all and had no issues with hot water in the shower, so still 5 stars
We will definitely go back to this place.

Absolutely lovely place...right on the river looking out towards the cathedral. You really are right in the midst of the city. Organisation & details were excellent, instructions easy to follow. Can't thank the owners enough. Would love to return again.
We had a lovely stay, the location is very central so perfect for seeing Durham and waking up to a river view was lovely. Flat was very spacious and great for our one year old to run around in. Also decorated for Christmas which we thought was a lovely touch. Thankyou - we will definitely be back and recommending to our friends.
