“We came, we returned & we will come again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

This was our 3rd visit. We just enjoy staying here. Peter & Hilary make us feel so welcome. The breakfasts are wonderful & we meet very interesting people as we sit around a large table, sampling local goods. We can see the Angel of the North from our room & the farm is central for sightseeing.
The best B& B we have ever sayyed in & we even told the Hotel Inspector that when we had breakfast with him last year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are to the same standard - excellent

Low Urpeth was a lovely place to stay. It was very comfortable. The breakfast is really fantastic - so much delicious food. My only disappointment was the location. It wasn't as rural as a thought it would be, it is quite exposed and not tucked away in a nice country town. The view out of our window was of a large green shed and a bit of Newcaste in the distance. But having said that, the other positives more than made up for the setting.

Picked Low Urpeth as very close to Beamish Museum. Best choice we could have made. Lovely and convenient location, views across countryside with Angel of the North in distance. Temperature outside may have been minus nine at times but didn't stop accommodation being warm and comfortable. As was the welcome from Hilary and Peter. Breakfast was an experience not to be missed with every choice you could want although we stuck to the full Low Urpeth breakfast. Some guests had cancelled due to the appalling weather they don't know what they missed. Personally I'd drive through a blizzard for another of Hilary's breakfasts.

We selected Low Urpeth Farm because of its good reviews and proximity to The Beamish Museum. We were certainly not disappointed. Our room was lovely with good shower facilities. Hilary and Peter were wonderful hosts - very warm and welcoming. Their great local dining-out tips were very helpful and breakfast the next morning in the dining room was out of this world! Together with our fellow guests, we all sat around the enormous, beautifully laid table in the dining room and enjoyed the most sumptuous breakfast. Many thanks for making our stay so memorable.
