The wonderful couple than run this BnB couldn't do enough for us.
We were attending a wedding near by and they didn't mind the fact we wouldn't be in until late. The breakfast was fantastic and definitely healed some sore heads. We will be back.
A very relaxing time
We had a excellent time, a very welcoming and relaxed welcome, almost like stepping into your own house, the room was very well presented without being overbearing, you also wanted for nothing in the room and the view was spectacular, but most of Northumberland is, that goes without saying coming from an Northumbrian though, there was no set time for breakfast, though this might change in peak periods but it made the pressure of getting out of the huge bed just that little bit more bearable.
Breakfast was worthy of a champion and cooked to perfection, the only slight setback is that if you do have a cold disposition it might be advisable to visit in the summer
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.
Idyllic setting for a wonderful stay!
Such a beautiful and grand house in a remote historic village.
We were greets and treated extremely well throughout the stay. Peaceful accomodation and comfortable beds. The breakfast was amazing and there was far too much of it. Would happily recommend.
