“AMAZING”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here as two of us was doing the Great North Run, it is a brilliant place to stay for visiting Newcastle, Durham, South shields. The house has amazing quirky decor, and Claire and Peter are amazing hosts, they have gone out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable, always putting in extra effort. The hot tub was the best thing to come home to after the run, we will definitely be back next year.

“Fantastic !!!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Stayed at Harry's House last weekend with a group of friends. From the time of booking until we checked out our host Claire was fantastic, she really does go out of her way to make sure you have all you need for an enjoyable stay. The house and grounds were very clean and tidy with so many little extras like towels, toiletries and a lovely welcome pack. We loved the hot tub and Claire even offered to light it ready for when we got back from our evening out, we loved relaxing in it under the stars. I would recommend renting this property to anyone wanting to explore Durham and the North East.
I gets 5 stars from us !!

“Amazing stay great friendly people”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I stayed at Harry's house for my 25th birthday and had the best time.The owners of the house were amazing and did everything they could to help us out. It was very clean and tidy and couldn't have asked for a better house to stay in. I will defiantly be coming back in the near future.

“comfy house, lovely garden, friendly hosts and a fantastic area to visit.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

stayed here for 4 nights and just wish it was for longer! From the moment I booked Claire was brilliant in replying promptly to all my queries and meeting her and Peter in person they were just as helpful. The house was comfy with lovely extra touches like a welcome hamper, toiletries and delicious free range eggs. The garden is nice and private and a great place for catching the sun or soaking in the hot tub. It is on a busy road but the upside of that is it is so easy to get around on public transport. We used the bus to get to Durham and from there the train to Newcastle, so you could just park the car up and forget about it! There is so much to do in the area we will definitely be back to explore it :-)
