Very comfortable room with good TV and shower. Great bar with pool table, beer garden and good range of homemade food. Great breakfast served in B+B dining room, separate to the bar. Very friendly staff.

The Rose and Thistle is a lovely friendly inn located in an absolutely stunning area of the Northumberland national park. We arrived mid-afternoon and took a walk for a couple of hours to the nearby village of Harbottle and its ruined castle. We received a warm welcome from Jane, the landlady, who was also very helpful in giving us tips... More

We were acting as the support vehicle for our son and his wife, who were cycling from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Appleby-in-Westmorland (route 68), and this was one of our overnight stops. The welcome we received could not be bettered, the cycles were safely locked away in a garage, and we then enjoyed an excellent pub meal. The bed and breakfast clients... More

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.

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.

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
