Well behaved children over five welcome, Moor End Durham is a pleasantly situated stone-built house built in 1840. It is close to Durham city centre and the A1(M) with excellent pubs/restaurants nearby. The city can trace its history back a thousand years, to the arrival of a religious community seeking a permanent resting place for the body of St Cuthbert of Lindisfarne. As a shrine for their saint, they built first a wooden, then a stone church, on top of a rocky hill, protected on three sides by the River Wear. Following the Norman conquest of 1066, King William also found this site appealing and realised it offered an ideal strategic location from which to rule Northumbria and defend the region against the Scots. The community of Cuthbert gave way to Benedictine Monks and a Bishop appointed by the king. They began the building of the Cathedral, to provide a monumental shrine for St Cuthbert, and the Castle, to act as protection for the Cathedral and to provide a palace for the Bishop. The result was one of the most impressive construction projects ever undertaken.

Very welcoming. Good location.

This B&B was outside the city but within walking distance and on a bus route.

The owner was welcoming and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious with a spacious en suite. The pub next door provided out evening meal on our first night. Breakfast was very good.

Pleasant surprise for a hotel dweller

I travel significantly less with work than I used to.

I chose this B&B on the strength of the reviews and it's location to the conference I was attending. The room, the service, the breakfast and the facilities surpassed that what I would expect of a hotel at double the price. Highly recommended!
