Tea in the Cheviots

The best bit of carrot cake I've ever had, and a lovely cup of strong tea to wash it down. Wonderful location in the middle of the Cheviots, with a stream running past. Welcoming friendly owner. We sat outside with local people and walkers, on the hottest day this summer. Loved it. Going again soon.

A must, having cycled up the valley on one of my favourite rides. Best coffee and cakes around. Huge portions and amazing value.

Not easily accessed and short opening hours but surrounding countryside is fantastic and walks start and end from there - they even have their own walk named after them - just google it! Fantastic sandwiches and mugs of tea with free refills ! Make sure you get back in time after your walk - or stop in before you start... More

After browsing places to eat before our trip to Northumbria I wrote this tea room in my diary as one to visit and wasn't disappointed. We arrived rather early and the gentleman told us they didn't open till 11 so we went for a scenic walk around the area which is just breathtaking then walked back to the tea room.... More

Is there any tearoom in more stunning scenery? This is a great place to come before/during/after a walk/bike ride/run.... There are a few outdoors seats for the warmer months. Good home-made food, huge pots of tea, reasonable prices, friendly and helpful owners and customers who are all happy to talk to each other. It's like a big house party!! Who... More

Called in today after walking to Border ridge and Windy Gyle. The owner was very chatty and friendly. I was total knacked and he brought my tea and cake outside to me. As somebody says it's the most picturist tea room in the UK. The cake was LLLLUUUSSSSSSSHH

Up early for a run fro Wooler to Barrowburn in winter. 14 miles of freezing temperatures only finished by the thought of bacon at the end. I went for the full set english breakfast. Sausage, bacon, double fried egg, beans, fried bread, mushrooms, tomato and buttered bread. There was nothing left on the plate at the end. Delicious. A never... More

Barrowburn is one of those places that, when you're sitting eating your bacon sarnie and drinking a hot cuppa looking out over the rolling Northumberland hills, you wonder how you never managed to make it here before now. Open all year round but closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and Xmas day it's all about good value hearty food before or... More

Best bacon butty I have had in a long time, a substantial pot of tea and a wonderful friendly welcome, the home made cakes and soup are also recommended.
