Had a one night stay at Orchard house, very friendly greeting by 2 women. Offered us a glass of Buck's Fizz on arrival. They showed us to our room on the top floor which was very chique with lots of nice features. Our private bathroom was opposite our room on the landing. Everything was spotlessly clean but I would have... More

What a joy to discover such a lovely place to stay. Impressed by everything we encountered really at the Orchard House. Welcomed and made to feel comfortable straight away in a very tasteful environment. Didn't expect this level of luxury staying in a guest house and all the extra touches provided to make you feel a little bit pampered made... More

Attention to detail and super hospitality made our recent stay thoroughly enjoyable. Nice touches included the welcome drink and chocolates in our room. A good idea to have individual bottles of 'proper' milk available for guests to collect from the breakfast room. Staff were friendly - a really important feature for any hotel. The breakfast was first class - very... More

You really do feel like you've escaped at this lovely little guest house. A nice mix of antique charm and modern comforts. They have thought of your every need and deliver a quality product. A very enjoyable stay. Well done.

OK we stayed because we got an offer and there are rave reviews on this website but what a special place this is. In some ways it is quite quirky and 'of a time' but the little touches referred to below just make it more of a boutique hotel than a B&B. Breakfast is of a very good quality (although... More

Booking was for two nights only break from our Cumbrian home-wish it had been longer! We were greeted by Audrey,the Proprietor, who made us feel so welcome by giving us a surprize present & much sound advice to ensure that we had a fine first experience of Northumbria. The Orchard House is situated in such a quiet area of the... More

We enjoyed 2 nights here in early March and found a very warm welcome. It is a nice quiet place to stay with every comfort. The staff are very friendly & there is a lovely guest sitting room. Rothbury is a wonderful village in the midst of beautiful countryside and it's a great base for walking. We really recharged our... More
