This was our first "full English Breakfast" and we never had a better one on our trip, certainly not one served with greater care in a lovelier breakfast room. We enjoyed every bit of our stay at Moor End House. Our rooms were spotless and welcoming. The proprietor did everything possible to make our stay memorable. He took the time...

Visiting Durham from the South-west, I booked a room at Moor End Guest House and enjoyed an absolutely perfect stay. The room was spacious and fully equipped with everything I could ask for.

Excellent value for money. We had a two night stay while visiting Durham. Martin was very helpful and even have us two vouchers for Beamish which gave us 20% reduction.

We (2 adults & 2 children aged 13&15) stayed here in August 2016. Fantastic place, great service. Nice pub literally a short stroll away. Room, Beds, Bathroom etc. all top notch.
