I searched the Internet extensively for somewhere special to stay for me and my husband's 8th wedding anniversary this coming weekend. I found Birdsong and instantly wanted to stay here, however it is booked up most Saturdays for the rest of the year. The Treehouse restaurant is also booked up for this Saturday, so we booked the day off work... More

We stayed here for 1 night in the Haven room, on arrival we were greeted by Gary who couldn't be any more helpful what a great guy, unfortunately we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Amanda. When getting to our room we were shocked at the size of the room as it looks a lot smaller on photos. The room... More

At first, I thought it was too far out of Alnwick, being a few miles north and in the country alongside the A1, but actually it was a great location for exploring the area. Amanda very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Interesting quirky setting, including hot tub (didn't use) and poultry in the garden. Lots of birds trilling... More

We stayed in the Haven room with the hot tub. The room was lovely with an en-suite wet room and the hot tub out on the roof decking. Bed was super comfy, had a great couple of nights sleep. Breakfast was delicious and the owners were friendly and helpful. Gary even gave us a lift into Alnwick on our first... More

My husband and I stayed at the Birdsong B and B whilst attending a friends Wedding at nearby Elingham Hall. We live in Northumberland already so knew where it was located but still could not believe how close to the A1 it was as it was so peaceful. When we arrived we were greeted by Amanda who has a larger... More

Stayed in Haven room to enjoy the hot tub experience. Lovely room and beautifully decorated and wet room was very luxurious. It was a sunny weekend and the room gets the sun as does the decking where hot tub resides. Lovely slurping abit of fizz while relaxing in the bubbles. Had our first experience of a Nespresso machine which my... More
