“Great room and amenities, host was lovely when I arrived and made sure I had everything that I needed. Also pointed me in the direction of some useful places. Really convenient location and easy parking. I was in the area for work and would definitely use again”
A tastefully decorated, eclectically furnished 2 bedroomed home with the emphasis on comfort which will suit a variety of purposes whether you are in the area for a short break, visiting relatives or working and wanting somewhere more homely and less expensive with more privacy than a hotel. Situated a few miles from Durham City and Kynren at Bishop Auckland, a mile from Durham Gate and 5 miles from NetPark and Hardwick Live at Sedgefield with great road access for further a field.
“Geoff's home is very nice, everything very well organized, very clean and modernized two level private house only for you, he is very kind and if something goes wrong, he is there for you. When we booked, we thought were only 2 beds, one in each room, and we found out an extra bed on the double room upstairs, so I would strongly recommend his home for families. Neighbourhood is very save, there is a store next by, police station on same street, and and people are very friendly. Thank you for your hospitality, we will book again.”
A charming, and beautiful lodge in a idyllic woodland location, Fairbeck Lodge is every inch the beautiful setting for your well-deserved break. Whilst it appears to be set in a remote rural location, it is in fact incredibly well-situated to be able to visit attractions , shopping centres etc that are easily accessible from the main road: A1M . Let us help you to feel like you’re ‘home from home’!
“We were greeted upon arrival by both Tim and Julie, who gave us a quick tour and left us to our stay. Very nice people with a definite passion for hosting. The place is tucked away off the main road, very peaceful and quiet. It's very cute and ideal for couples. Decorated nicely with subtle details, it has character and a homely feel rather than being sterile and cold. Well heated, has offroad parking, clean, with a folder full of local and relevant details to increase the comfort of your stay. I would thoroughly recommend this place to others. We had a slight technical issue with the shower playing up, but that shouldn't reflect upon the host as sometimes things just dont always work as they should. And although we weren't seeking any recompense, Tim and Julie insisted on compensating us for the inconvenience. Very professional and appreciated.”
