About Margaret Makepeace

We bought the property as a second home and use it ourselves for holidays as we love the area. We now live in Yorkshire but some of our family still live in Durham so we visit as much as we can. Since renting out the property as a holiday let we have met some wonderful people from far and wide and have really enjoyed the experience. If you decide to book a holiday in No. 21 we will do our best to make your stay enjoyable.

Margaret Makepeace purchased this house in 2007

Why Margaret Makepeace chose County Durham

We just love Durham City.

What makes this house unique

Being in the city means we can access the castle and cathedral, bars and restaurants without having to use the car. However a short drive away we have several attractions such as, Beamish Museum, Aukland Castleand Bowes Museum as well as the beautiful countryside around the weardale area.

The vibrant city of Newcastle can be reached by train or bus.

Great location & lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with everything you could possibly need. The location is fantastic, 5 min walk to the centre of town and close to the station. Supermarket and green grocers are a stones throw away.

Lovely welcome with a great welcome basket setting us up nicely so we didnt have to go straight to the shops upon arrival. House was clean and would certainly recoment to a friend. We would love to return!

We had a most enjoyed able stay in Durham, made so much easier by having centrally located and welcoming accommodation. The cottage was beautifully kept and had everything we needed for a most enjoyable break. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Glad we made your stay enjoyable. Sorry didn't realise the shower attachment was broken, this is now fixed. Yes a dishwasher would be nice, but as the kitchen is quite small. Space is limited. Thanks for leaving no. 21 clean and tidy.

Hilltop Hangout Huge Hit!

  • 5 of 5

Walking up the Neville street hill, your fortitude is rewarded with a simple Georgian townhouse, which quickly became "our home" for the week. The tasteful decor and functional arrangement was the perfect setting for our family of four (including our two almost-grown sons). The house supplied all of our holiday needs, with nothing left wanting (the welcome basket was a delightful surprise). A six to ten minute walk easily gets you to most notable areas of Durham, with the bus and train stations at hand. The best fish & chips are had at the bottom of the hill, and cafes and groceries are close by. After our long days of traveling and wandering, it was always a pleasure to return to this warm and welcoming home.

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay at this property more! We stayed here with our three children as we were just moving to Durham, while waiting for our permanent accommodations to be ready. The home is cozy, comfortable and delightfully furnished. The location is absolutely perfect for exploring the heart of Durham and it is just around the corner from the bus station and taxis if you are in need of further transport. There are multiple shops in the area to purchase food for self catering. The hosts were kind, helpful and accommodating. We were even welcomed with a basket of goodies on the table. Really could not ask for better! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends!
