This is a really wonderful place to stay. Steve and Yvonne are so hospitable! The old school house is beautiful and surrounded by a lovely garden. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very well kitted out. The food is excellent and there is a wide choice. Everything is fresh and well cooked. Yvonne went to a lot of trouble to... More

Came here for an autumn break when we wanted to visit Alnmouth and Alnwick. Lovely clean room, amazing breakfast, very quiet location. Very friendly. Very good (and popular) pub a short walking distance away.

Our second stay with Yvonne and Steve this year, and another warm, friendly welcome - great breakfasts and fabulous advice on where to visit during our stay. The room was again clean and really cosy and the little extras like access to the fridge for extra milk, complimentary water and to store our wine make a difference. Would thoroughly recommend...

Spent a couple of nights at the charming Old School B&B. As with the other reviewers, we were given a warm, friendly welcome by Yvonne and Steve. The house is absolutely lovely, with lots of nice details. The breakfast deserves all the accolades on the other reviews. The food is clearly top quality and was cooked perfectly. The eggs were...
