Very high quality accommodation, with all comforts and needs attended to. Bath robes and toiletries, reading lamp and amazing music devices to suit all tastes. But the best tastes were the extraordinary breakfasts - porridge with pink champagne cream and strawberries, or a coconut milk-soaked muesli with mango in addition to many choices of cooked breakfasts. Audrey and Graham have... More

We stayed here for two nights. Audrey was very helpful and welcoming. Warm flannels were very nice (we didn't get the Bucks Fizz?) upon arrival. It really is a lovely house, very comfortable and relaxing, a calming atmosphere with a really nice lounge for residents. We arrived the day before the Street Fair, which was excellent. Instead of our planned... More

We really don't want to tell everyone how good this place is - as we'd never get booked in again ! This lovely B&B excels on all counts. Welcoming staff, lovely large rooms, beautiful furnishings combined with a great location in the heart of the lovely town of Rothbury, But what really makes the difference is the attention to detail...

So delighted when we arrived at this beautiful Georgian (?) house, greeted warmly by Audrey and offered hot flannels to freshen up, and Bucks Fizz. What a lovely start! Rooms were very well equipped, we wanted for nothing - as a previous reviewer said, a lot of thought and attention has gone into the rooms. The bed was comfy, lovely... More
