Just returned from stay at the Hosedon House,part of the Rose and Thistle in Alwinton. We have stayed many times,both at the B and B and the house. The house is utterly superb for a self catering holiday,with four large bedrooms and a magnificent kitchen,huge lounge and lovely garden. 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

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. The rooms are nice with everything you need. We will comeback for sure!

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
