it was ideally situated for everywhere,durham,a1,washington galleries.beamish. the apartment was so clean and had all you could ask for. the beds were so comfy. never had to worry about the car,i.e. parking or safety,with the security of electronic gates. mum is 81yrs old,and im disabled,so the ground floor flat and ramp was excellent. we also took my little yorkie,and he loved it too! if you didnt feel like cooking,the red lion pub,at the bottom of the bank,did excellent food.
