Perfect cottage to relax in - luxury and peace and quiet
If you’re after a relaxing break in a homely but luxurious cottage this place is for you.. The dining room and living area are surprisingly spacious for a cottage and really are the perfect place to kick off your shoes and chill out.. i loved the peace and quiet, the fabulous views of the countryside and river bank (perfect for an early morning run).. the bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in - no longing for your own bed here.. The welcome pack was more than enough for the few days I was there and the bottle of wine a very nice touch...Absolutely everything including the welcome from the hosts was fabulous... I’ll definitely be back to this cottage that is so much more than the max 5 stars that I’ve been able to award it! Thank you for a fabulous trip
Charming cottage in good location.
We were very pleased with the generous welcome pack which was very helpful. Comfortable bed and lounge. Pleasant dining area with view of the garden. The galley kitchen was a bit small but contained everything we needed including dish washer and washing machine. Excellent shower room.
Jim and Karen were very friendly. The location has easy access to bus routes but even better is the fact that the park and ride is only a few minutes away making access to Durham very easy.
Dear George and Valerie
Thank you for your kind review and delighted that you enjoyed your stay here, It was a pity that the good weather was breaking last week and hope that it improved when you arrived in the Lake District.

Beautiful cottage in a nice location
The photos are true, the cottage is really stunning. And well equipped too with true attention to detail. We’ve stayed in lots of cottages over the years, but never had all of these: a cutting board, a cafetière, proper knives, and a lemon squeezer. The generous welcome basket spared us an emergency shopping trip after a long drive. Jim was a lovely host who told us about the Kynren and the railway walks. There are plenty of running / walking / geocaching options straight from the cottage, on the other hand Durham is just a short drive away.
Thank you for your kind review and delighted that you enjoyed your holiday with us.
Hope to see you soon
Jim and Karen

Lovely area for a holiday
Close to public transport and park and ride.
Well provided cottage.
Owners could not be any more helpful and most inviting.
Dear Aitken and Ena

Not enough stars to rate this cottage
We were overjoyed with our stay in Erin’s Cottage. It is compact , especially when it comes to the bathroom and kitchen, but so thoughtfully done to maximise use of space. The bedroom is a good size, the lounge room quite spacious. The kitchen, while small, is by far and away the best equipped I have encountered. The back garden is a delight and at the front, there was always parking. The place is spotlessly clean. And of course, there is the decor / slightly off-best and quirky, adding a touch of fun without being too cute.
Jim and Karen are delightful hosts, very generous in their provisioning, available with help and advice when needed, but never intrusive.
Without a doubt, our best cottage rental experience - my only complaint is that it spoils you for other places.
By the way, the location was a bonus for us - in the delightful small village of Sunderland Bridge, just a short drive into Durham or with a good and frequent bus service. So by staying here, you do get a sense of village life.
With its size and set-up, it is designed for one couple who can then enjoy all the pluses, like the dining alcove, the music system etc etc. Recommended unreservedly.
Erins Cottage is perfect.
This delightful cottage has it all. Jim and Karen had it filled with wonderful goodies, bathrobes,
a well stocked kitchen and a welcome sign over the fireplace. There is a lovely garden in
the back yard where you can sit and view the country side. About two ,miles to the city
center. A definite A+.
Thank you for your comments. Jim and I always try to exceed expectation and we really appreciate that you had a lovely break in Erin's cottage.
