We needed a stop on the way to Whitley Bay for a funeral the following morning and chose this at random. I am so glad we did. After a frustrating drive of 260 miles through traffic and road works we were met warmly with tea and cake even though it was 8.30 in the evening. Charles helped with luggage. We... More

We spent 2 nights with Charles and Christine whilst on a short stay in Northallerton. I wish we had been there longer. The rooms were so comfortable and well equipped, the breakfast was delicious and the welcome we received was beyond compare. Nothing was too much trouble and when not in the kitchen, Charles was slaving away in the garden... More

I booked Porch House as our Northallerton base for 2 nights while we explored the local area with a view to relocating. What an inspired decision. Charles and Christine have taken a house with outstanding English historic credentials, and crafted an atmosphere of home from home comfort and warmth. Nothing was too much trouble and we instantly felt we were... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Porch House and are definitely not disappointed. We treated ourselves to the four poster room which is well worth the little bit extra! We parked around the back and was met by Christine and Charles, helping us to carry our luggage inside. They served us coffee, biscuits and flapjack in... More

My wife had mentioned a few times that she wanted to stop at Porch House so for a valentines treat I thought I'd check availability. I left it a little late (January) but was overjoyed that there was a room left and it was my wife's preferred choice. Charles quickly replied and was very accommodating which was a good start....

My wife and me usually chose 4 star hotels but knew of no hotels in Northallerton so read reviews of hotels and B&Bs in the town and this sounded superb so we booked. The owners have only been in place 2 months and run an immaculate establishment spotlessly clean, great room and en suite. Nice lounge small restaurant. Breakfast was... More

This is a stunning guest house, or B & B if you prefer, quiet, elegant, impeccably clean and comfortable, with such a warm and friendly welcome from hosts Joanna and Glyn. Our room for 4 nights was the four-poster, what an enormous bed!, and like the rest of the place beautifully furnished, decorated with antiques, paintings, porcelains, etc. Being history... More

beautifully presented guest house / B&B. Lovely room with 4 post bed and loads of space. In the town center within easy walking of all the local facilities.The personal touches such as Port & Sherry in the sitting room are fully in keeping with the overall ambience of Porch House.

I think people sometimes overlook guest houses when searching for luxury accommodation. Maybe they conjure up old-fashioned cartoon images of landladies in house coats shouting at misbehaving guests? Thankfully, in the case of Porch House you have sixteenth century character with twenty-first century service. During our one night stay. my wife and I were accommodated as house guests in the...
