"Home from home"
We were travelling to Durham for work and needed a comfortable and peaceful place to stay and we couldn't have chosen better. Keith and Pauline are warm and welcoming hosts who are obviously passionate about their B&B and the lovely village and county they live and work in. The B&B is quirky, obviously well loved & maintained, homely and spotlessly clean. Our room was lovely, very cosy and the bed was comfortable and restful. Read less
Likes:
The warm welcome & local advice, the breakfast, the comfortable bed & seating area in our room, the home made biscuits, fresh milk and chocolates. We only stayed a night but felt instantly at home.
Dislikes:
No complaints what so ever.
Response from The Old Post Office:
Thank you Karen not only for the physical elements of our B&B but also the intangible assets we try to imbue in our overall offer to our guests. We were very happy that you felt at home as a preparation for your work the next day. You and Keith will always be welcome with us.

All the best

Keith & Pauline
