We returned to Durham house after staying last year, and will definitely be returning next year. Owners friendly, breakfast amazing and the room clean and relaxing. There is literally nothing bad to say about staying here or in the amazing village of Beer it is all perfect

The last room available was the room with a separate bathroom. No problems with that as it was slightly cheaper. The room itself was very small with a double bed. Nowhere to sit other than on the bed. Other rooms, which we did see, were much larger so if you want one of them don't except this room - room...

Stayed here when walking the SWCP. Very welcoming hosts, lovely comfortable room with all that ( very light) backpackers needed. We had a large window overlooking the very pretty village, and the B&B is in a great location. Breakfast was also very good.

This is a beautiful B&B in Beer, with great hosts. The rooms are beautifully presented and very clean, with great breakfast options. It is also very well located, and I totally recommend it. I also had a specific incident, where I had forgotten a pair of trousers after the checkout, but the owners located them and promised to post them...

We had a fantastic stay at Durham House, Martin and Shelley made us feel very welcome, they were always available when we needed information. We felt like it was home away from home, the rooms were clean, cosy and very comfortable. Attention to detail was fantastic, breakfast was delicious with lots of choice.I definitely recommend this B&B.

Beer is a very nice village with some very pleasant hostelries in the area. Masons Arms in Branscombe is worth a visit. Location excellent, hosts excellent, rooms excellent, breakfasts excellent and bonus parking included in price which was very reasonable. Nothing to criticise, enough said!

Our hosts were friendly and helpful. Our room at the back of the building was quiet and comfortable. It was very clean when we arrived and cleaned daily. The ensuite was large.

Dear Vich 156 Many thanks for your review and for coming back to stay at Durham House - there is no better proof than guests returning to indicate that we are getting things right. Sorry we were not here to greet you personally on arrival and sometimes, if we are out, we do leave notes for self-check-in. As you know...
