Devonshire Haven

We are now taking bookings.  We will only be able to accept bookings of a minimum of 5 days. We will then not allow another booking for 72 hours for us to deep clean the property and change all bedding and towels (we have several sets we use on rotation).  The 72 hours allows the property to be free from infection regarding non cleanable fabrics etc (for example curtains). We also now use an antiviral fogger in each room between each guest. Should any bookings be made that cannot be taken up because of changes in guidance or issues with the pandemic we will refund you in full.  


The property was completely refurbished  in 2018 to a very high standard. Being situated  just 3 miles from Durham City and around 5 minutes by car its the ideal location for a city break. Being far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy all the amenities of the city and surrounding areas. It comfortably accommodates 5 people with a cot if required. Bookings made with this site will usually be cheaper than those booked with third party sites. Please check with us first for details and confirmation.
