We had a booking here from almost a year ago and had been really looking forward to our stay and from reading other reviews we had high expectations. Then a last minute medical emergency meant that we were unable to make the first 2 nights of our original 4 night booking. Gary and Helen could not have been more understanding about the situation we unfortunately found ourselves in. We we were so very pleased to at least enjoy 2 nights in this wonderful luxury B&B and in fact our high expectations were more than matched.
Our room was an extremely generous size as was the en-suite it had everything you could need plus a lovely slice of cake each day made by Helen. Coffee and tea is available in the large entrance hall with an amazing choice of beverages, fantastic with your own allocated shelf in the fridge there for milk. Outside on the rear terrace there are table and chairs for each of the 3 guest rooms, where you could enjoy a lovely outlook.
Breakfast is in the bespoke breakfast room where the choice on offer was exceptional. Whilst they had needed to do away with the buffet table for fruit and cereals due to COVID-19 safety measures this was no way spoilt the breakfast offering. We both enjoy starting off with a bowl of fruit when we are away and what we were given could not have been more generous. The various cooked breakfasts on offer were so varied and all were cooked/prepared faultlessly. From a virus point of view we could not have felt more safe whilst in no way spoiling our enjoyment.
Millstone House is ideally situated to enjoy the wonderful countryside close by and close enough to the city of Durham and Beamish Museum, Raby Castle amongst other attractions to make this a great base to enjoy the area.
We cannot wait to stay here again but for longer next time.
