“Absolutely perfect. We were in the area delivering a course at the local school and this ticked all the boxes. Peter's house is IMMACULATE, stylishly decorated and with lots of nice touches including fruit juice and gin in the fridge and cupboards of essentials. Will definitely stay again.”

“Gareth was a great host. He offered to come collect me from the station, which was 10+ mins drive away, which was great. His home was clean and he was very friendly and social. I enjoyed staying there for a bit, and will be back again in future. I’d definitely recommend him to other guests. Clean and simple, and quiet. A little out of town but wasn’t a problem and there is a bus. He drove me to work as well one time. Great guy.”
Curious about this lovely Seaside town in County Durham? Stay in this light & bright spacious double room , friendly atmosphere and a 'home from home' feel. My home sits in a quiet location close to Seaham Hall (5 minute drive) & just a 20 minute walk to the East coastline where you can visit the WW1 statue of 'Tommy' or have some tasty fish 'n' chips with a view. It is also accessible to Durham, Sunderland or Newcastle City centers by public transport (bus stop 5 mins walk) or motorway.
“This is a lovely house, very clean and stylish and the guest room is great to stay in as it is at the back of the house so quiet. Sarah is a great host, I didn't actually meet her during my stay because of her work and family commitments, but she stayed in contact and I felt looked after. The breakfast was a very nice touch with cereal, toast, and fruit juice and a danish pastry. Value was great and overall I can thoroughly recommend staying here if you are on business (as I was) or having a trip to the Seaham area.”
