Fantastic Guesthouse with an amazing breakfastPosted Jul 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
A perfect place to stay, completely isolated, quiet, great views. Really friendly host - I was greeted at the door with a glass of wine! Ideally located for central Durham - I stayed here to attend a graduation ceremony. less than 10 minutes to the Park and Ride and about 7 more minutes into Durham. Beautifully presented, very high spec and breakfast was probably the best I've had in any hotel/guiesthouse in the country. Faultless !

The most AMAZING little find!Posted Jan 27, 2013
Pros: Everything - honestly.
Cons: There is nothing that I can put here, as I truly couldn't find fault, were I to try!
Location: A great location - quick access to everything in the area, yet beautifully secluded at the same time.
I was looking for a place to stay for a quick business trip to the outskirts of Sunderland, and chanced upon this wonderful place! One thing to note - you WILL need a Sat Nav (or make sure your taxi driver has one), as it is not well known yet. It seems like it is in the middle of nowhere, but is, in fact close to everything - A small village, with a couple of pubs, is only 1/2 a mile away; Newcastle a mere 20-30 minutes by car, and, as I was told, some coastal towns about the same. On top of all that, the Hideaway is surrounded by it's own several acres of land. I got there after a 6 hour train journey, and a confused taxi driver followed the Sat Nav directions (I had my phone's Sat Nav to follow, luckily, as the driver was sans navigation, and had never heard of the place), and was welcomed at the door by one of the owners, Philip. I was welcomed in to the beautifully restored 1830's Hunting Lodge, and offered a selection of drinks, and then, glass of red in hand, ushered into a lovely lounge with an open fire - fantastic! The room I stayed in was the Holly Room (named for it's reference to Hollywood, with tasteful decor and homage to Monroe and Hepburn) - warming, elegant, and wonderfully spacious, is all I can describe it as. As I'm running out of characters for the review, I will finish by saying that Philip and Helen, with their welcoming warmth, made me feel like an old friend come to visit - I cannot recommend the Hideaway enough, and hope to go back there soon.
