My husband and I have stayed in dozens of airbnb places. With rare exception we have found them to be inviting, pleasant, and enjoyable. But Martin offers an airbnb experience par excellence! Not only are his beautiful house and garden an oasis, but Martin is that exceptional host who goes far beyond what's necessary to accommodate his guests. We appreciated his generosity, wit, and deep knowledge of - and obvious affection for - Darlington and the surrounding area. We can't recommend his place highly enough.

Martin saw us as we drove up. He was preparing for a community event and was outside working as we arrived. He took us inside, helped with bringing things in, introduced us to his wife and showed us around and then to our room. He was very engaging and helpful. The room was spacious with large and modern ensuite bathroom.

This was a brilliant Airbnb experience....Martin and Fran were perfect hosts (I especially enjoyed some fascinating conversations with Martin over coffee in the mornings!). The house is beautifully furnished, on an extremely quiet tree-lined street, and the room and en-suite very comfortable and stylish. Great attention to details - kettle and great choice of different varieties of tea in the room - and the invitation to help myself to fresh, local milk from the fridge at any time, and any drinks from the cupboards. Breakfast was delicious - good choice of cereals, fruit juice, fresh fruits, yogurts, freshly baked bread and homemade marmalade. Delicious! I will DEFINITELY stay here again when I next work in Darlington, and recommend highly to everyone else.

We stayed with Martin and Fran for only 1 night. They were all extremely welcoming and nice. The house is quite large and the private room and bathroom is quite spacious, clean and new renovated. The family has 2 very well behaved dogs l. We had everything we could possibly need, including towels and breakfast and very much enjoyed meeting everyone. We are looking forward to staying here again

I booked on the strength of all the other positive reviews, and they weren't wrong! Martin and Fran are lovely, friendly people, and their house is very pleasant and in a great part of Darlington. Their two dogs are completely chilled and easy going, and the room is comfortable, quiet and well appointed. The breakfast is a real bonus too. Very highly recommended!

Martin and Fran were warm and welcoming hosts. We were greeted with a cup of tea and a friendly chat and soon felt at home. The room was comfy and the ensuite wet room was great. Breakfast with homemade bread was tasty. Ideally situated for Kynren. Dogs were adorable and we would have dognapped them if we could have got away with it. Would definitely stay again if ever in the area.

Martin and Fran love the outdoors and they are keen hill walkers.
