The rooms for rent are two spacious double bedrooms in a three-bedroom house with lovely views of the countryside. They are fully furnished with double beds, desks, wardrobes and bookcases.
Beddings and towels are included.
There is no television in the house, but a fast connection Internet and around a thousands books.
As textile artist I own a collection of vintage sewing machines. The house is quiet and suitable for professionals, postgraduates and studious undergraduates. I am looking for clean, quiet and (a must) non-smoking individuals.
There is a sizeable garden with small trees and a vegetable plot where I grow my own vegetables.

The house is situated in a little cul-de-sac in the lovely village of Ushaw Moor, 15 minutes bus ride to Durham bus station (43 and 48 buses). For university students and staff the daily unlimited ticket costs £1 a day.
By car, the city centre and the Science Site (Main University Campus) are 8-10 minutes drive. Parking at the house is nearby.

The village is self sufficient. It has the COOP supermarket - 5 minutes walk - that is open 7am-10pm every day, seven days a week.
Take aways (pizzas/kebab, fish and chips, Chinese and Indian), a convenience store, the Post Office, a pharmacy, two hair dressers, a beautician and florist are all within walking distance from the house.

Two National Cycle Routes (14 and 70) are a few minutes away, with woodland tracks for walkers, runners and wild mushroom foragers (like myself). There are a couples of rivers and streams -the Deerness and the Browney. In front of the house there is an allotment site with hens, cockerels and a goat. It is indeed a rural location, yet the lively Newcastle upon Tyne with its busy nightlife is only 30 minutes drive away (20 minutes by train).
