"Fantastic"
Such a warm welcome, amazing rooms with a very comfy bed. Everything has been thought of. Breakfast was just fantastic with everything cooked perfectly and everything you need readily available. Just wish I had not been alone as it would have made a lovely getaway with my husband. I think all the little extras which they do not have to do made it exceptional. Read less

Durn House has retained many of its original features with huge open fires, superb plasterwork, magnificent stone spiral staircase and very large rooms.

Guests have access to several relaxation rooms, for all tastes, whether relaxing by the fire in the magnificent drawing room, watching TV or a DVD in the private guest lounge, playing pool in the Gentleman's Club' or chating with the owners over a dram, where guests can learn about the amazing history and connections that have been discovered about Durn House.
