Arrived at the Rose & Thistle Inn have ridden 54 miles on tough MTB routes to be greeted by the owners Jane & Gareth. They were amazing, the food and accommodation is top notch. This is a must visit, we will definitely be back on a regular basis, David, Paul & Neil.

The Rose and Thistle is in the village of Alwinton a great base to explore the hills and forest tracks around the Coquet valley and the border ridge. We stayed 2 nights on Friday 5th and Sat 6th of June 2015. We were met with a warm greeting from our hosts for the weekend Gareth, Jane and Jean and shown... More

We spent the weekend at Hosedon House and found everything about the accommodation fantastic. The Rose and Thistle is a very friendly and very good pub. There is also some great walking straight out of the front door. All in all, one of the best family weekends we have had. We certainly intend to return.

We stayed one night when walking the Inn Way. Great pub, food and hospitality. Comfortable rooms with separate sitting room, with its own fire, for guests where breakfast is served. Recommended for walkers and families.

The Rose and Thistle,owned by Gareth and Jane is a homely,friendly,typical... More

This is a remote place on the eastern edge of the Cheviots and views from all bedrooms is great. We stayed one Sunday night in February and were, consequently, the only guests. This meant we had the lounge to ourselves which was a real bonus. We had problems with the free wifi but everything else was great including the food.... More

Fantastic location, out for a drive and went in on a whim for Sunday lunch. Really nice home cooked food, nothing cordon bleu but nicely cooked, tasty, generous portions. Warm welcome from staff and prompt service. Would go there again.

This is the eighth year our two families stayed away for New Year and the first at Hosedon House; the holiday let attached to the Rose and Thistle. The property is perfectly laid out and a credit to Gareth and Jane in designing it that way. It was huge, warm and soooo comfortable. We were given a warm sincere welcomed... More
