Stayed one night here on my recent cycling trip through Northern England. It was easy to find (the sign itself was a sight for sore eyes after a long day on the bike). Laura was helpful, welcoming, and attentive, and there was a good place to store my bike for the night. My room was spacious enough and the bed... More

I find it impossible to criticise this lovely hotel. The rooms are quiet, spacious, comfortable, and with wonderful views. There is a fine lounge to relax in. The breakfasts are excellent and the owners welcoming and helpful. Their concern for the environment is admirable. And it is in a very beautiful area. What more could you want?

I love this place, a warm welcome with tea and biscuits in the large lounge and lovely rooms. Mine had a view towards Alston town itself and was beautiful. The shower is on the small side, but the bed was majestic - a shame Mrs b wasn't there to snuggle into :) A good cooked breakfast and what more could... More

I was travelling in a group of friends on a 3-day charity bike ride. We were made very welcome, and lost no time sampling the fine range of bottled beers. The room I had was very good indeed, large, warm, spotless,and comfortable, The bathroom was also very nicely done and equipped, even if the hot water pressure was rather low... More

As part of our charity bike ride, this was a most welcome stopping place. The hosts were very helpful, both with the booking, and also suggesting places for us to take a meal. Rooms were good, and comfortable. An excellent place to stop. I may even bring the wife here!

We drove into this lovely quaint village and whilst driving around having a look we happened upon the Manor Country House, it appealed to us in its location and ambience. The hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming, we felt all our needs met, the rooms offered were lovely with some unique special touches such as a handmade quilt cover with... More

This accommodation was a stop off for bed & breakfast for us to travel from Hastings to Scotland. We were very impressed with the welcome we received and the service given.
