The space
Recline in style in our Durham holiday accommodation -
There's plenty of room to relax in the exceptional quality furnishings in this light and airy apartment: you can sink into the red leather couch, or stretch out on the rather stylish Drift chair.
Above the marble fireplace is a wall-hung widescreen digital TV on which you can explore 50+ channels of television and radio, or watch movies on DVD.
If you're more inclined to shut your eyes, you'll get the best from the state-of-the-art sound system on which you can also play CDs.
When night falls, you can set the mood with the lighting and have a candlelit dinner at the elegant glass dining table.
The brand new kitchen facilities are second-to-none. There's everything from a freezer to a fish slice.

Unwind after a day in Durham!
This is the perfect place to revive yourself after a hard day attacking the culture, shops and restaurants of Durham.

There's a Victorian-style free-standing slipper bath, and a separate hydromassage shower enclosure. The bath is thoughtfully positioned so that there's somewhere to place your drink, and has a hand-held shower as part of the gleaming chrome plumbing.
The separate shower enclosure features a powerful yet fully contollable jet system for your amusement.
You can pamper yourself with the exclusive toiletries provided, get dry again using the giant plush towels, and if you can't be bothered to get dressed, wrap yourself in a cosy bathrobe.

Relax in Durham Apartment: the comfortable bedrooms -
The main bedroom has a spacious Art Deco-inspired double bed, complemented by a generous wardrobe and chest of drawers.
There's a flat-screen digital television so you can laze in bed and watch TV, or listen to the radio channels which are also provided.
A spiral staircase leads from the living area to a second bedroom upstairs. Here you'll find ample space for two further guests, who can choose to sleep in two single beds, configurable as a double if they're feeling friendly. Again, there is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. A TV/Radio sits in the corner opposite the attractive day-bed which is covered with millions of cushions to provide a cosy nest.
All the beds have high thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, welcoming pillows and luxurious duvets.

Where you’ll be

Durham, United Kingdom

On the doorstep of history, in the vibrant centre of Durham
Moonlight Apartment is on the second floor, overlooking the historic streets of Durham and next to the River Wear. The Cathedral and Castle are a 5-minute stroll away, which will take you past the city's interesting shops and wide variety of restaurants. As well as traditional establishments, there are chic cosmopolitan bars and eateries, and Durham's impressive Gala Theatre complex is just round the corner.
Further afield, a 20 minute drive will take you to the prestigious Beamish Open Air Museum, or if you can't live without serious shopping, Gateshead's Metro Centre is similar distance away.

There's a convenience store within 2 minutes of your front door, with M&S and Tesco reachable in 5 minutes. Durham's Leisure Centre with gym and indoor swimming pool is less than 10 minutes' walk, and the railway and bus stations are within easy walking distance.

Owner of Moonlight Apartment, Durham Developer of Co-Pilot: Simplified Tablet for Elderly, Forgetful and Learning Disabled Bought an apartment in the middle of Durham City after accountants pointed out tax benefits if I let it as holiday accommodation. Had so much fun getting it to 5-star standard that we got another one the following year. Apparently after you have four of them, you can exchange them for a hotel...
