I stayed at the Sands House for a week while in Durham. The house is ideally situated in a calm area of the city yet very close to the centre/market square (~10 mins walk) & the university campus (~20-25 mins walk). The house is quite big and would be perfect for families, but it is just as great for solo travellers (especially those travelling for work). All the amenities required for longer stays in the city are provided (full kitchen,washing machine,internet etc.). Would highly recommend.

We spent a week just before Easter 2017, with dog and for part of the time with adult daughter. Cooked our own main meals there and used as a base for walking, cycling and driving tours in the area. House is near the river (with flood defenses on the doors!) so good dog walks directly along the banks to fields. Short walks into town to see the Cathedral, do shopping etc. Dual carriageway five minutes away took us direct to A1(M) for drive to Alnwick, Durham is also beautiful.

One week in this lovely house, with excellent accommodating landlords just next door! Easy walking distance to city centre but also lovely riverside walks out into country for the dog!

The house has everything you need with a beautiful conservatory overlooking the garden. The host Greta is very welcoming and was on hand to answer any queries living next door. The rooms are very spacious and is in a perfect location for exploring Durham with the city centre a short 10 minute walk away. There is off road parking in the garden accessed through a locked garage door.

We found Sands House extremely spacious, clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful owners. Located in a quiet part of town across from a large grassy area and the river, the centre of Durham is soon reached by a ten minute walk, the climb to the Market Square, Castle, Cathedral and shops being eased by either taking the half-hourly Cathedral bus (the stop is a level 400 yards away) or by the lift beyond the long series of steps to Walkergate and the Gala Theatre.

We spent a week in the nice house and loved to use the billard. We did a lot of walking along the river Wear and in the further surroundings. Being close to the town center, Sands House is perfectly located.
