Named ‘One of the Best Cities to Visit in 2020’, Durham is a beautiful and charming area within the North East. Known as the ‘perfect little city’, Durham has the best mix of everything and it all blends seamlessly. It retains its mediaeval heritage but it also has a modern and vibrant twist. It boasts lush green landscapes but it also has busy cobbled streets with independent shops, bars and restaurants.

Durham has plenty of history within its walls. One of the most spectacular historic sites is Durham Cathedral. Constructed between 1903 and 1133, this towering building is a shining example of Norman architecture. The cathedral is now the oldest surviving building with a stone vaulted ceiling of such a large scale.

Getting Around
The centre of Durham is a short 10-minute drive from Aidan Gardens.

Durham train station is 9-minute drive away so nearby towns and cities can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Durham. Hop on the Arriva 6 route to visit Barnard Castle or the number 22 which travels through Seaham and Sunderland.

Stay was amazing for me and my other half, was very clean and smelt amazing, not a single problem inside the property heating was easily adjustable to our liking and just a very cozy setting will 100% return in the future.



Comfy, modern & clean<br/><br/>N/a



Aidan Gardens is a very comfortable home with many amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Our contact person, Charlie, was very responsive, made us feel welcome, and immediately responded to questions. The location of this house was ideal for us, with only a 3 minute walk to our family's home.



Modern, clean and comfortable <br/>Everything you could possible need for a stay<br/>Great location, quiet but in close proximity to Durham<br/><br/>Leaving!



Great place to stay



Great house. Spotless. Well heated, well presented and lots of kitchenware etc



Great place to stay



A lovely house with everything well catered for. Very spacious in a convenient location. There is only space for one car on the drive but there is space for another in the close. Beds are double, rather than king as per description, otherwise it was perfect and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!



Amazing stay throughout. Looks exactly like the pictures but even better in real life. Really grateful to have stayed at such a beautiful home.



Stayed here for a weekend in Durham, the accommodation was spotless and we had all we need.



The check-in was easy and the location is near to downtown.








Property was lovely-clean and tidy. Comfy beds. <br/>Hand towels in bathrooms would be good and a bin in the top floor bathroom. <br/>Outside of property could do with a tidy up- weeds/leaves on patio. And leaves on terrace from lounge could have been tidied prior to our arrival.



Excellent house, clean and spacious. Great host, and recommendations to where to eat. <br/>Uber £10 to city centre, not really walking distance, so that was easy. <br/>Would highly recommend as it’s not easy to find places with parking, so this ticked a lot of boxes. Would stay again.



The location is convenient<br/><br/>The service is awful. There are items damage and some electrical appliances out of order when getting into the house. I reported immediately and asked for fixing. The maintenance team committed to get them fixed the next day, but they only show up on my check out day. If you don't check carefully everything, you may have to bear the responsibility of those faulty items which are already existed before checking in.



Location very good for all main attractions,parking on site a real bonus.Modern home with attractive decor,immaculately clean.<br/><br/>One small issue raised by email with hosts was not replied to.



on first arrival it looked amazing -immaculately clean, beautifully furnished but we had a serious problem which will probably only affect a small number of people -there was not, as stated, a dedicated workspace. We had checked this before booking & was assured that although there were no photos this did exist. We think what they referred to was a dressing room -it had a very narrow bench with a huge mirror with huge lights - not at all suitable for working. There was a small stool - you couldn't possibly sit on this to work. we had to carry upstairs a dinning room chair! This was reported along with bin outside overflowing, shortage of wine glasses & small plates, only 1 bulb out of 3 worked in dining area - sadly nothing was done about anything. Add to that the fuses blew if you used the toaster, iron so marked you couldn't use.



Beautiful, very comfortable well equipped & clean property . Quiet location close to Durham attractions.<br/><br/>Host and Stay seems very controlling company. We received about 10 messages & emails during 2 nights stay. It really put us off. We definitely won't be booking with Host & Stay again. We had not even started enjoying our stay yet when received reminder already what we have to do before checking out ( including taking all bin bags outside although we paid a lot for 2 nights stay).



Great accommodation, highly recommend



Quiet, but central parking. Own parking space. Nearby shopping for everyday needs. Spacious.<br/><br/>Master bed was a bit small. <br/>Bit warm in the house



The cleanliness and was well equipped<br/><br/>A bit far from the city center



Mooi huisje, <br/>Alleen niet king size bedden. Het waren twijfelaars. Te klein om te delen met vrienden. Van te voren was er geen goede communicatie over de bedden mogelijkheden. (Of ze uit elkaar geschoven konden worden) vervolgens beddengoed voor de bank gevraagd en dat zelf moeten kopen omdat er niets geregeld werd



Great accommodation, would recommend!



Great stay
