The Estate House

Spent two nights here during a three day trip to Northumberland to catch the local sites (Bamburgh, Alnwick, Berwick-Upon-Tweed).

Despite searching and booking it on the Friday before going (we went the following Monday to Wednesday) and worrying that this can normally leave you with some. questionable accommodation options, I can say that this was absolutely perfect. Set in a quiet and quaint village (I encourage you to have a little wander round if it's not too cold), and run by the loveliest people you could hope to meet (as well as some incredibly friendly dogs!) it was perfect for what we needed. 20-30 minutes drive from where we wanted to go, quiet, comfortable and nothing is too much to ask. Having arrived around early evening on the Monday we were met by Sam, the owner's daughter, who showed us to our rooms and also suggested a local pub in nearby Crookham which is about a 5 minute drive away. I have to say, if you stay here- GO TO THAT PUB. The Bluebell Inn is a proper local pub run by a lovely chap and the food portions are massive. We ate in the bar area both nights and the locals were really friendly. We even got to be taste testers for the upcoming Christmas menu's desert due to my other half being rather cheeky, but the chef remembered her and said hello the next day. The house itself is very easy to find despite previous reviews as the village is quite small and only has about 3 streets. It's certainly not down some dirt track as one reviewer has said. My tip for you is- when you come in, head for the post office (there are signs for the village centre) and look for a large column with a statue of an angel on the top- this is directly outside the house as is where you park your car. There's also a tree lined path next to the house which I recommend you have a quick walk down in the evening should you fancy it. Although you can't go into the castle, the views from the Church at sunset are breathtakingly beautiful. The room we were given (Joicey) overlooked the extensive garden, which you could also see from where you have breakfast and which you have free access to. Although the weather wasn't bad, it was a bit too chilly to eat out there, but before we left we had a little walk round it as there'd been rabbits and all sorts of wildlife roaming around in the mornings. The room itself was spacious and not too cold. The only drawback was the TV wasn't watchable as the colour just displayed a bit too neon despite altering settings, but it wasn't an issue as there's a guest lounge so we watched a bit of TV in there. The bed itself was quite large, and the use of wooden fold out blinds and curtains meant the room was very dark so should be fine for light sleepers. Breakfast was a bit of a buffet in the corner- cereal and fruit- but with the choice to also to have all manner of cooked breakfast options- first day I went for the full English and certainly didn't regret it. Very filling. Overall this was a lovely place to stay in a lovely village, run by the nicest people. I would highly recommend this place as somewhere to stay. Oh, and if you get chance, don't miss up a chance to pop into the local hall (it's just up the road across the road from the house) as the lady who owned the estate painted the walls in some beautiful Renaissance-style images and they are a wonder to behold!

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.
