Very Good8.0
We highly recommend this place. It's a funky little b&b with the most gracious hosts you can imagine. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.

The Old Post Office, Durham
Lovely, convenient inn.
Lovely village inn in nice, conveniently located town. Hosts were personable & welcoming, & enjoyed discussing local history. They gave us discount coupons for local attractions, unsolicited. Choice of restaurants nearby. Excellent, homemade English breakfasts, with eggs from the chickens in the back yard. A homey, enjoyable stay.

Excellent stay
We were welcomed by Keith who was an excellent host. The room was comfortable, excellent location and an exceptional breakfast to finish our visit. Will definitely use this B + B again

A joyous stay
Superb small hotel run by a couple who really know how to make the stay very good. Nice clean en suite room, with lots of touches like a small torch to see you to the WC in the night. Shuttered windows make the room dark and cuts down on the noise, Breakfast is very good with all the produce bought locally. If you need to stay in the area look no further.
