The new owners Yvonne and Steve were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The fantastic breakfasts were always a feature of our previous visits, and Yvonne has maintained... More

Steve and Yvonne have it just right. On every level it is a 5 star rating. From the greeting, which includes a tour of... More

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.
