    Hello, I currently have a farmhouse near Durham with a spare room and was wondering whether any students might be interested in it.

    It's about a 15 minute drive from Durham, so you really need a car, but it's also very close to areas where my PGCE friends taught last year (Wingate, Coxhoe, Bowburn). It's a very nice place to live too - very peaceful, and we even have a log fire. There's even a stables, so you could bring a horse...

    Anyway, if you're interested, there's more about the farm (and us) here:

    If I was a single student headed to university, I would be all over this.

    Perfect for a student wanting a unique experience.

    Thanks! Personally, I probably wouldn't recommend it for a fresher - it's kinda difficult for nights out. It's great if you want a peaceful place to work though.

    This made me laugh. I'm going to Durham this year, having lived my whole life on a farm, and can't wait to got away and live in a town for the first time. It could be a fun experience for someone though, especially with the dog.
