Description

You’ll enjoy my bright, clean and cheerful house, with all modern conveniences in a village setting within walking distance of Durham’s city centre, 30-min walk along the riverbanks of the Wear, or a 5-min bus ride just steps from the house. We have two fine pubs with good food and a garden centre which has large tea rooms and a veranda where you can sit and enjoy the sun when it appears!

The house is fully furnished and kitchen fully stocked for cooking; 100% cotton bed linen and towels provided, and cosy feather duvets. You can enjoy a fire in the sitting room with your own supply of firewood for your use.

Property Type: Town House / Terraced House
Responsibilities: General housekeeping, alerting me of any possible needed repairs; laundering bed linens and towels, stocking breakfast items for guests (dry goods only) remaking the beds and tidying the room of departing guests.
Points of interest: Public Transport, School, Cafes & Restaurants, River, Historical Interest, Pubs, Hiking Trails
Things to know: There are paying guests on a fairly regular but ebb-and-flow basis; I handle all the arrangements from screening and booking to preliminary communications and all monetary transactions. Guests are self-catering. The volume of guests ebbs and flows but on average, guests are booked in only half the time. The most work is just doing the laundry which are the bed sheets and towels. The rest is simply handing over keys to guests and in fact you can arrange for guests to collect keys on their own--I have a hiding place and I send guests instructions. Most only stay for one or two nights and spend the days out and also dine out. Two of the three bedrooms are listed for paying guests. The master bedroom is yours exclusively.
