An absolute gem in the North Northumberland countryside....and a hop skip and jump from the haunted Chillingham Castle and it's Highland Cattle. It would be difficult to find more friendly, hospitable and accommodating hosts than Ian and Mary Catchpole. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Ian's breakfasts are destined to become the stuff of legend...a real treat for the... More

The good news is that the rabbits have stopped feeding on my carrots, runner beans and broccoli - the bad news is because there is nothing left for them to feed on as they've totally decimated them all ! We will offer a special discount to anyone who can train rabbits into only eating ground elder, mares tails and the... More

We spent 10 days in Mary and Ian's beautiful bed and breakfast. We felt at home from the minute we arrived and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay very enjoyable. The breakfast menu gave plenty of choice and you could even go off piste with your request! We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone... More

Don't tell everyone you can go off piste with the breakfast selection - it only gets Mary in trouble from the chef for allowing it! Seriously though, we think the breakfast menu offers a variety of well balanced dishes to suit most tastes, but we always try to be accommodating (including providing a tea party for the teddy bears whilst...

That is just how Ian and Mary made you feel, from the minute we arrived, we were welcomed and treated to coffee and cake, our bags were taken to our room and what a room, beautiful 4 poster bed, so comfortable. Breakfast was great, Ian's homemade beans delicious, and floddies, mmmmm! Sadly we were only there overnight, but would most... More

You did well to get back to Norfolk from Holy Island in 6.5 hours with a break - you must have been the first off the island after the tide. We'd love to see you back again, especially if you can stay longer as there is so much to see. More

We were going to arrive slightly late and rang Ian and Mary to let them know - they said it wasn't a problem. We were welcomed with a lovely cup of tea and some toast. The room was superb, with a fridge, tea and coffee, a fabulous bed and spotlessly clean throughout. The breakfast was out of this world and... More

Although the Full English with homemade sausage & floddies is our signature breakfast dish, I must agree with you as my favourite is the scrambled egg cooked with smoked salmon on a freshly buttered muffin. We're glad you managed to get your photos of the puffins in flight from Farne Islands, which now adorn our web site - many thanks. More

We spent the most wonderful 5 nights from 7th - 12th June at this beautiful home set amongst the unspoilt Northumbrian countryside. Ian and Mary were attentive from arrival with tea and home made cake and as time progressed it was clear to us that they had covered everything for the enthusiastic traveller to the North East. Breakfasts were lovingly... More

Thank you for your kind words. We're pleased that you felt at home and were able to relax whilst you were here, Alas, all our guests have to go back to reality at some point to make room for others to follow to share the tranquility of Northumberland, but we look forward to welcoming you back some day.

Ian and Mary have thought of everything you could possibly require for your stay, be it long or short. We had a 2-night stay at The Old Manse and wished we were there for longer. The College room was spotless and so comfortable. We certainly appreciated the heavy curtains which made the room completely dark -necessary in the middle of... More

The long evenings are glorious at this time of year - we sometimes sit outside at 10:00pm whilst it's still light - not so good for stargazing, but that's a bonus for the longer nights being in an official dark sky area. Northumberland is one of our favourite areas too, but we are biased. More

This place is luxury at its best for a fraction of what you would expect to pay. From Ian and May's welcome with a pot of coffee and a piece of toasted tea-bread, to the luxious bedrooms, everything was perfect. Ian homemade breakfast are superb with a wide choice to suit any appitte. The local area as splendid castles to... More

I'm glad you feel like you're welcome in our home, as you are - we like to feel we are entertaining guests rather than running a commercial business, which is what puts us apart from a hotel.

We stayed at the Old Manse for one Saturday night, oh that we could have stayed longer! The place was charming, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Not to mention having a lot of character and very tastefully furnished However the high standard is nothing compared to the warm welcome that Ian and Mary provide, from stepping through the door they...

The Catchpoles are very nice and make a very good breakfast. The rooms are luxuriously appointed. Near the Chillingham Castle. A very nice stay. It's a good central Northumberland location if you want to see Northumberland.

Thank you for reviewing The Old Manse. I'm glad that we have hit the mark on the essentials of a good B&B - cleanliness, tastefulness & luxuriousness. With your ancestral ties to this area, I'm sure you and your family will be back again. More
