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

We stayed for one night after doing a long walk. Excellent hosts, and lovely accommodation. We were 3 couples and we had a lovely lounge for to ourselves to relax in, with a roaring fire and really comfortable settees. Breakfast was served there in the morning .It was a very good breakfast with superb eggs and plenty of tea coffee... More

An absolute Lovely B&B with a great pub and great food. You can't host ask for better hosts they helped us out when we lost our luggage and really walked the extra mil for us. the surroundings is beautiful with stunning scenery.

We walked along to the pub from Milkhope in March; a group of around 14 of us. After a lovely welcome we enjoyed a few very nice beers, great hot meals, and enjoyed a few games of pool with a lovely view. We ended up having a couple more beers than expected as we enjoyed ourselves that much - as... More

Stayed at this delightful inn for three nights. Fabulous breakfast with eggs from their own hens. It was lovely to sit outside in the garden and watch the birds on the feeders which were filled every day. Very nice, comfortable room and bathroom., good shower and toiletries. Ideal for visiting Cragside and Belsay or for walking in Northumberland national park.... More

Very quiet and picturesque surroundings. The pub itself is bustling with locals and walkers and has a very warm friendly feeling. The food is absolutely fantastic (would've loved to have stopped for Sunday dinner, it smelt devine!) The rooms were nicely decorated and had a fabulous power shower! Only minor downside is the rooms aren't very sound proof! But the... More

The breakfast are superb and the meals are great. The portions are very generous and the food is very tasty with a wide choice. The owners could not have been... More

I stayed at this delightful country inn, in June 2014 as I was performing with my father at The Coquet Creek Country Music Festival close by. The location was perfect, really peaceful and not too far from our venue and the main town. I found the history of the inn interesting as it is family run and has the original... More

Nice steak pie shame about the puff pastry topping as it was very pale should have been a golden colour.

Friendly staff but its attention to details that lets them down ie too many framed pictures, dried flowers, too much... More

It never fails to amaze me that people would rather write daming comments about an experience they have had instead of addressing there concerns at the time. We are genuinely concerned that you had such an awful time in our lovely family run pub. The pictures and posters on the walls refer to the local show now in its 148th... More
