Just a short walk from the charming village of Sedgefield, this large holiday property is perfect for celebrations or family get togethers.

Situated in a superb location, just a short walk from the centre of the charming village of Sedgefield, Durham House brims with character. Ideal for larger parties, Durham House is a spacious, comfortable former village inn, which has been restored to provide excellent accommodation for families and friends to enjoy. This beautiful 8 bedroom holiday property benefits from a large outdoor recreational area, a games room and even has its own bar with a pool table, perfect for reunions, celebrations and family gatherings.
Sedgefield dates back to the 13th century, and is believed to exist as a Roman settlement. The 2-mile heritage trail nearby provides a wealth of history. With some good pubs and restaurants close by, the properties are in an ideal location for exploring the many visitor attractions in north Yorkshire, which is just half an hour away. Alnwick, with its famous castle used in the Harry Potter films, the Heritage Coast, peppered with castles and golden beaches, and York with its beautiful minster, can all be reached within an hour. Renowned as one of the finest historical and cultural cities in the UK, the city of Durham has a magnificent cathedral, castle and World Heritage Site, along with an array of medieval architecture, winding cobbled streets, unique shops, pubs and restaurants.
If it’s fresh country air and wonderful walks you’re looking for, Sedgefield nestles between the Yorkshire Dales, County Durham and the North York Moors, where you will find some of the most dramatic countryside, including High Force waterfall, stunning coastal walks and the Castle Eden Walkway. Sedgefield races are a regular feature on the local calendar, and take place all year round. For keen golfers, visit the Knotty Hill Golf Centre, which is just one of many golf courses in the area.

    Durham House is clean, comfortable and spacious. It is ideal for large group holidays with six double/twin rooms in the main house, all with en-suite and most providing an extra bed, ideal for a younger family member. We stayed over the Christmas period. The house was warm and tastefully decorated. There is a bar with a pool table and a good sized sitting room close by so the group can be together but not on top of each other. The kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and crockery and has plenty of storage space and two ovens and dishwashers. There is ample parking which is gated making it safe for children and dogs, and an outside sitting area. Sedgefield is a lovely village with a range of pubs and cafes and the grounds of Hardwick Hall, within walking distance, are ideal for a gentle stroll.

    We visited the Durham House in September for 4 days. We were a group of 14 runners taking part in the Serpentine Race at Sedgefield. It was a fantastic weekend in a wonderful house. The rooms were spacious and clean, tastefully decorated, with enough room for everyone. The highlight was without doubt the community room on the ground floor , big enough for us all to dine together, also a bar and billiard table. Outside in the grounds there was a barbecue area and seating for all of us. We felt at home from the first moment we were there, and have already booked again for next year. The hosts were excellent, all our wishes being fullfilled, it couldn't have been better.

    Absolutely loved Durham House - rare to find a house big enough to cope with our entire family but the facilities were outstanding. It's going to become our 'go to place' for family holidays 😀

    A great location and fabulous house with great living space, the bar was a real bonus and with small kids felt like you were able to have a night out easily after busy days. It really did have a pub feel in the generous bar area. The dining space is fabulous for huge parties and whilst the kitchen is on the smaller size the rest more than makes up for it. There's a large supermarket a few minutes away, good pub, duck ponds and parks with good playgrounds in easy walking distance.
