Interaktion mit Gästen

At least one of us (but generally both) will be at home to receive you on arrival, and you are very welcome to a coffee/tea with us! After that, we will not disturb you, but we'll be available if you need anything.....
Brian can cook English breakfasts, and will provide one for you if required for £5. (Please let us know before you arrive). Otherwise in the morning help yourself to fruit juice, tea / coffee, fruit, toast and jam or marmalade. The table will be set for you... There is always soya milk in the fridge, sometimes coconut milk too. (Helen also has Vegemite for fellow lovers of that delight!) We are generally around at breakfast time, depending on how early you / we need to get away.....

Die Nachbarschaft

Our neighbourhood is very quiet, despite being 100 yards from a Spar corner shop, hairdresser and English pub (The Jovial Monk) which also offers a taxi service. The shop is useful for baked items, drinks, sandwiches and pizzas / ready meals which can be heated in our oven / microwave. At the top of the street, the Newton Grange pub (with a 'Generous George' dining franchise) offers a comfortable environment in which to drink or have lunch/dinner. If you have a car, about a mile away from our home, stand the 13th Century ruins of Finchale Priory by the River Wear.
Attractions in the city include the magnificent Cathedral and Castle and beautiful walks along the River Wear. There is a plethora of pubs, coffee shops and restaurants (Italian / Indian / Mexican / Chinese / Thai etc) in Durham City which reflect the tastes of locals as well as the students who arrive in Durham every October.


Without a car, Durham city centre is about 40 minutes walk away through the countryside (on tarmac paths). We have a very regular bus service; the bus stop is 150 yards away and the No 64 will get you to the historic city centre in 10 minutes. By car you'll get to a parking space in Durham in 5-10 minutes. Car parking is by meter, from 30p to 50p per half hour, but free after 6pm.
Newcastle International Airport is approximately 40 minutes drive away. To get to our home from the airport, take the Metro train to Newcastle, then intercity train to Durham. From there, take a taxi (£5 - £8) or take a bus trip (No 64) from North Road. (Very near to the train station). Durham is on a main line train route to London (2 hours 54 minutes), Newcastle (15 minutes), Edinburgh (1 hour 15 minutes). The train station is about 6 mins away from our home by taxi, 10 mins by bus, or a 40 minute walk away.

This was my first Airbnb visit so I was not sure what to expect. However, it was an excellent choice. Helen and Brian are charming people and they could not have made me more welcome. My room was lovely, and it was even nicer than on their photo. I have back injury problems which means that I need a very comfortable bed and their bed was extremely comfortable. The room was fresh and very well equipped, as was the private bathroom, where they had supplied nice quality toiletries. There were tea/ coffee making facilities in the bedroom. I only stayed one night but there was lots of storage space for clothes for longer stays. I was offered breakfast in a lovely little breakfast room. If ever I decide to explore the area where they live I would have no hesitation in staying with them again. Their whole home was cosy and inviting.

I received a warm and friendly welcome from Helen and Brian, and it was soon clear they would be great hosts. We had a cup of tea and a chat before I was shown to my room. The room contained all I needed for a stay away and was very comfortable. In the morning toast and coffee and fruit juice was provided which was a lovely touch. If you are looking for somewhere homely to stay rather than a soulless travel lodge, I would recommend staying here and hope to see them again soon.

Nutzerprofil von Brian & Helen

PLEASE NOTE - This is the only listing we have on airbnb.
We are a retired couple whose children have flown the nest.
Brian is enjoying his retirement from an Architectural Design Department within a Local Authority. Helen worked with Victim Support County Durham for 13 years.
A few years ago our daughter was married in Pennsylvania. Brian found superb airbnb accommodation in Philadelphia, which gave him the idea of hosting in UK. We've since been guests in Airbnb rooms in Nottingham, Coldstream, Ilkley and Manchester... So we fully appreciate being 'guests' too.
We celebrated our 60th birthdays with a trip to Andalucia, Spain. However Greece is Brian's favourite hot holiday destination while Helen loved Zell Am See in Austria and Iceland. We've had great trips to see friends and family in San Antonio, Texas and Philadelphia USA.
Other places visited include Belarus, Poland, France, Belgium, Cyprus, Crete, Zakynthos, Corfu and in 2016, Mijas, Malaga.
We also love Great British travel.... including Scotland, Wales, Wiltshire, Derbyshire and North Yorkshire...
