About the hotel

It takes just over 5 minutes to drive here from the A1 trunk road and we are the first B&B in Scotland due west of Berwick-upon-Tweed. We live in a delightful barn conversion on our own farmstead, with an open aspect to the front and farmyard to the rear. Our bed & breakfast got its name from the sign we put up in front of our house to allow our slow ram Reggie to amble across the lane without a care in the world.

This is a perfect location for visiting North Northumberland, the Scottish Borders and East Lothian. With the additional benefit of a Railway Station in Berwick upon Tweed enabling you to opt to take the train for a day-trip to Edinburgh or Newcastle upon Tyne rather than drive there. We pride ourselves on providing a homely, friendly experience for our guests who describe this as “a B&B like no other” and a “home from home” experience. We also like to provide a substantial breakfast that will set guests up for the day and do offer a lighter alternative if preferred. There’s plenty of outside space here to enjoy as well as the house, and our farmyard is fully enclosed. We have pigmy goats, horses, ponies, sheep, sheep-dogs, a whippet and cat. And the cat sleeps in the house because it does not want to be a farm cat. You will need your own transport to get here and please remember to pack indoor shoes or slippers as our carpets are light coloured (a mistake!). Our bedrooms are standard double and we only let two maximum and there is both a shower room and a bathroom on the premises, and this works perfectly well. We cannot emphasise enough, this is a homely, friendly, popular B&B and if that appeals to you then do not hesitate to get in touch. Our prices are competitive.

Can't recommend highly enough!

What an amazing place to stay.

In the heart of the countryside with amazing views, we had a lovely weekend here. It was one of the best stocked b&b's I have stayed in, and had everything I would do if I owned my own. The breakfasts were just amazing (so much food!) and Julie was such a lovely host. The room was well stocked (hairdryer / straighteners etc), and we had some water, squash and kit kats waiting for us which were greatly received. The added bonus of this accommodation is Squirt - the sheep that thinks it's a dog, so cute and hilarious. It's about 20 minutes drive along scenic country roads to get to either Berwick or Duns, and we had a lovely morning out to Holy Island (Lindisfarne) as well. The price is really good too, especially when you compare it to a hotel chain where you wouldn't even get breakfast let alone the level of hospitality. I would definitely stay there again!
