What a lovely place to stay. Super-friendly hosts, comfortable room and wonderful food. Lots of little extras to make our visit even more enjoyable. Good location in a pretty village, only a short drive to Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne and Seahouses. We will be back!

We stayed here with friends just for one night in February. I emailed beforehand with a couple of queries, and received quick and friendly responses. On arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our rooms. Amanda explained how to work the coffee machine, where everything was, and offered us home made cake - banana and walnut - delicious! Our...

We made the right choice when choosing somewhere to stay for a few days away. We headed up to Belford to go to Lindisfarne and to Bamburgh for a few days. The White cross is located in a very quiet village, very picturesque and English. We were greeted by a very friendly Steve and Amanda who showed us to our... More
