Warm, comfortable, welcoming...just a really lovely place run by friendly and thoughtful people. The house is a charming oasis in peaceful and beautiful surroundings which are a pleasure to return to after exploring the unspoilt coast and countryside. David and Christine are friendly and helpful hosts, great at making you feel welcome and at home - and being served the... More

Booked this for a birthday treat. Arranged flowers for arrival. Tea and cake when we arrived. Food to die for including Craster kippers. Lovely people make you feel immediately at home. Quiet. Near the coastal path. We will be back

An extremely welcome oasis of calm! As soon as we crossed the threshhold of the Old Rectory, I could feel myself relaxing. The copious tea and home-made cake helped! Unfortunately we were only there for 2 nights, but on both evenings we walked along the coastal path to Craster for our evening meal, enjoying the views and the birds. Thank... More

Wonderful four nights at the Old Rectory. We were made to feel very welcome from the start by Christine and David. Our bedroom (Holly) overlooked the garden and bird tables and was very comfortable. It was our first, and will not be our last, visit to Northumbria and the Old Rectory is in a perfect location for exploring on foot,... More

The Old Rectory is set in a lovely rural location in a small village near the sea. We were given a warm welcome, with a cup of tea in the lounge when we arrived while we pondered where to eat. The owners were very helpful (almost too helpful!) and booked us a pub which actually we regretted afterwards as it... More
