We found Shieldhall in Alistair Sawday on the internet and spent one night there en route to Alnwick. We were sorry that we couldn't stay longer, there is so much to see in the area. Our room had a hand carved four poster bed which was the most comfortable bed we have slept in. The farmhouse and outbuildings have been beautifully restored, including a library where we had an aperitif before dinner, served in the dining room in the farmhouse. We highly recommend it.
