Myself and my two teenage children booked a 6 night stay so that we could look around all the many castles in the area. I have to say we were so pleasantly surprised by the warmth and generosity received from Richard and Helen, such lovely friendly people with a genuine love of the area. We found plenty to do with...

Really enjoyed our (regrettably) short stay at The Old Post Office. Thank you Richard for your excellent attention to detail and helpful local advice. Lovely rooms, clean, comfortable bed and the best most delicious breakfast I have ever had (and I've experienced many!). Lots of little extras (homemade biscuits, cake, sherry and coffee machine at your disposal). Excellent overall.

This was my second visit and I was delighted to see that this wonderful and cosy B&B has been refurbished and added some great things to the breakfast menu. The welcome was very warm and cheerful and my room was bright, spotlessly clean and finished to a very high standard. I slept like a log! Richard was a great host... More

It's difficult to find new words to praise this lovely place so I'm probably in danger of repeating myself!! From the warm welcome, lovely rooms, fantastic breakfast....couldn't find a complaint if I tried!! Warkworth itself is in a great position for exploring the county whether that's walking or driving....north to Alnwick and the borders and the lovely coastal path...or south... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of Northumberland and it was fantastic - Rich and Helen are really friendly hosts. The whole place is clean and bright, with an attractive seaside-themed decor. The room we stayed in (Sea Campion) was quite compact, but nicely appointed, with a comfortable bed and soft good quality duvet/pillows/towels etc.... More

I strongly recommend the Old Post Office for your stay in Warkworth. The B&B is in the city centre and close to the castle. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was very good with several non--Full English Breakfast options--several of which were fairly unique. One thing I really liked about this place was that there is an "honesty bar" in...

Stayed at the Old Post Office for two nights whilst walking the Northumberland Coast Path/St. Oswald's Way. Lovely comfortable and clean en-suite room. Owners Richard and Helen were very friendly and helpful. Richard certainly knows how to cook, breakfast was perfect. Only wish their Bistro was open when we were there as it would have been a must do. Wouldn't... More
