"Superb roomy accommodation within easy reach of (but away from the noise of) Durham town"
We found Sands House extremely spacious, clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful owners. Located in a quiet part of town across from a large grassy area and the river, the centre of Durham is soon reached by a ten minute walk, the climb to the Market Square, Castle, Cathedral and shops being eased by either taking the half-hourly Cathedral bus (the stop is a level 400 yards away) or by the lift beyond the long series of steps to Walkergate and the Gala Theatre.

Likes:
We enjoyed a very relaxing stay in Sands House, a great place to unwind after a busy day round the many local tourist attractions. Large lounge, pleasant conservatory, good views from bedrooms.
Dislikes:
It was a perfect holiday - there wasn't anything we didn't like.

"Perfect home away from home!"
I stayed at the Sands House for a week while in Durham. The house is ideally situated in a calm area of the city yet very close to the centre/market square (~10 mins walk) & the university campus (~20-25 mins walk). The house is quite big and would be perfect for families, but it is just as great for solo travellers (especially those travelling for work). All the amenities required for longer stays in the city are provided (full kitchen,washing machine,internet etc.). Would highly recommend. Read less

"A great North East Welcome!"
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Durham. Greta couldn't have been more helpful, an excellent host. The decor and furniture are homely like the house. Already rebooked for next year.… Read more
