500 acre Durham farm
Hello, I’m James and I have a room in my farmhouse that’s available now.
It's a very nice place to live. There are four big bedrooms, a huge lounge with a wood-burning stove, a decent-sized kitchen, a big bathroom and a utility room with a washing machine, drier, fridge and freezer.
We also have our own gym with a spinning bike, cable machine etc. and a home cinema in the lounge. And there's 500 acres of land to run around on!
I live here with my brother, David, and it's actually the house we grew up in until back in 2001 when it went back on the market. I‘m currently doing a Master’s in Politics at Durham and a PhD in Psychology next year. I like a lot of podcasts, music, film, tennis, dinner parties and entrepreneurial stuff; David likes football, gaming and general outdoorsy stuff. I think we're very easy to live with, but naturally I would say that.
We have two other housemates: Laura, a speech therapist from Hampshire, and Daniel, a PhD literature student at Durham.
You don't actually need a car to live here. There's a bus stop at the end of the farm road and we're in the Durham District, which means students can ride to the City and back for just £1. We all have cars too, so there's potential for lifts some days. You can also apparently bike to Durham without going on any of the roads, but I still need to try that.
Oh, I should say that there are loads of animals too. I rescue battery hens and the farm has a stables so we're surrounded by horses. We also have a border collie puppy called Des who lives in the house, but he's very relaxed and well-behaved.
Anyway, please get in touch if any of this appeals to you.
