I LOVED the Estate House!

My friend and I spent three nights at the Estate House and we loved every minute of it.

We couldn't have had a warmer welcome or a more comfortable stay. Debbie, Sam and Bill were really lovely - so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was a spacious twin which was immaculately clean. The cost of the room came with a wonderful breakfast each morning (cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, full English - just DELICIOUS!) which really set us up for the day. (I can't speak highly enough of Bill's scrambled eggs!)

The B&B itself is in a beautiful little village with its own castle, a lovely, interesting little church and other fascinating places. It's also just a stone's throw from many tourist attractions (eg. Flodden Field) and in the wonderful setting of the Northumberland countryside. It was an easy drive to Berwick, Lindisfarne, Bamburgh, and Alnwick - and, if you really can’t do without a bit of retail therapy, Newcastle and Gateshead are within reach as well - either by car, bus or train from Berwick.

The only negative I can think of is the mobile phone and internet reception. It's definitely not the best and we found ourselves roaming round the house several times looking for 'hot spots'. However, a fibre optic cable has already been installed so the situation should improve dramatically quite soon.

If you're looking for a gentle, relaxing time in a beautiful setting, you can't go wrong settling for the Estate House. We just didn't want to leave.

Our mid week break

House warm and welcoming and in beautiful setting.

Hosting was spot on. Need to sort an opening window in the Joicey room, but didn't spoil anything for us. Only complaint regarding breakfast was from my husband who only likes plain pork sausage (but that's his problem!) and the fact that, although asked for, his fried egg didn't arrive on fried bread or toast (these both came separately afterwards). Beautiful garden and lovely dogs.
