Excellent Accommodation in a Beautiful Location.
We were looking for somewhere to stay for a relaxing and romantic weekend away; and a weekend escape from the kids. After reading some great reviews on trip advisor we booked up and were not dissapointed. We were greeted with a warm reception, and were offered cake and beverages which we enjoyed outside our bedroom over looking the gardens. I couldn't fault the bedroom it was clean, comfortable and the ensuite was spotless. I felt there was the right balance between being friendly and not intruding on your holiday. We enjoyed a lovely day out at Cragside and Alnwick and finished off with a sumptuous meal at the 'Cook and Barker' which is just walking distance from the b&b. This B&B is ideally located in the heart of Northumberland, one of englands true hidden secrets.

Old School House
My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay with Yvonne and Keith. They made us very welcomed from start to finish. The accommodation is to a very high standards. It is in a very rural area but near enough to get to the local attractions. A very good public house near by for meals. Will be returning again

A brilliant little find!
We stayed for two nights and can't praise this place enough. We were greeted with tea and cake and the resident partridge. Yvonne and Steve made the stay an absolute pleasure and couldn't do enough for us. The pub and the end of the road is really lovely and although we didnt eat there, the menu looked very appetising and the place had a great atmosphere. The bedroom was comfortable with a nice en suite and view of the gardens. You can understand why they have won awards for their breakfasts - perfect poached eggs. If we head back up north-east we will definitely stay here again (if they're not fully booked!)

Northumbrian short break
Everything about this accommodation and the couple who own it could not be better.Both Yvonne and Steve could not be more hospitable and deserve every success in this venture.We will certainly be back to this bed and breakfast and its beautiful location.
