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

Spent 7 days in Northumberland and had many very good meals in the small towns. This was easily the best and is as good as any small restaurant Ive eaten in. 8 of us. Quality and creative dishes. Special mussels that were ample, filling and unusual. Mull scallops starter sublime. Piece de resistance was a special banana and caramel tart.... More

Absolutely fantastic. Stayed one night the last night of a holiday walking the Northumberland coastline from Bamburgh. The rooms were immaculate the breakfast couldn't have been better. Unfortunately they didn't do an evening meal on the night we stayed. would definitely recommend and would choose if ever I am in this area again.

Booked this litte gem last minute and boy oh boy, what a find! Our hosts Richard and Helen were so friendly and welcoming, with nothing too much trouble - we felt like we had known them for years! A home from home and totally relaxed, we will be back for that breakfast. Thanks again Gary & Angela x
