“Lovely house & garden and very helpful owners.”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Claire made a stressful visit to Durham (for a family funeral) as easy as she possibly could.

We booked the house only a week or so before in desperate need of somewhere that we could take our newly adopted dogs.

Claire gave both us and our dogs a lovely welcome. We had an arrival pack of milk, eggs etc and and were shown around the very spacious house.

For an additional cost Claire looked after our dogs for the day meaning that we could leave them with peace of mind.

Though we didn't have the time to enjoy it, the large garden really is amazing with bar and hot tub.

We hope to be back under happier circumstances in the future.

Thank you!!

“An amazing place to stay!”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have recently returned from our second visit to Harry's House in 3 months! The house is incredibly well equipped, warm, cosy and boasting a glorious hot tub......very welcome after a long drive on a Friday night. The owners, Claire and Peter could not do enough for us, providing information on places to walk the dog and the local car parks/Park and Ride. Thankyou for making us all so very welcome and helping us to enjoy a super relaxing break visiting our son. We hope to be back soon.

“Relaxing break, with excellent hosts.”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Harry's House was our refuge over Christmas. Claire made us so welcome, and provided such lovely touchs to make us feel at home. Really made our dog feel special too!
The hot tub is definitely the highlight. We had 3 different sets of visitors who all enjoyed the bubbling hot water in the magical gardn setting. In the summer this place would be fab for parties.
The only let down for me was the kitchen. It was adequate but very dated and did not live up to the standard of the rest of the house. That said we cooked Christmas dinner here with produce from local shops and farm shops and had no problems.
Locally takeaways and shops seem good, transport links excellent and the community spirit was really nice. May just have to visit again in the summer and next Christmas.
