Primrose Cottage is great place to stay - we had ourselves, children and their grandparents staying over Christmas, and found everything in place for everyone. The house is compact, but with enough space for children to play without being underfoot. The kitchen is well kitted out, and the range style cooker handled a full Christmas dinner with no trouble! The cottage is very close to Durham, so would make a great base to explore the city or to head further north towards Newcastle and Northumberland. The village was quiet and peaceful (although Christmas and snow probabaly helped with that!) with a play park, restaurant and small shop in easy walking distance. All in all, we’d recommend Primrose Cottage to anyone looking for a convenient base for a family holiday.
