“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

I stayed at Aidanfield Guest House while hiking St Cuthbert's Way. Everything about the stay was great - the warm welcomes, the spacious bedroom and very comfy guest sitting room, the offer to dry some sodden waterproof clothes and damp boots, the car transport to Lindisfarne Inn for dinner and collection from the inn for the return trip. Well done Mavis and Gerald.

I recently walked the Northumberland Coastal path with a friend.Beforehand I checked all the accommodation and was more than satisfied with the reviews on Aidenfield. Indeed I anticipated that it would be one of the best bed and breakfast establishments en route.Sadly we were very disappointed.Our welcome from Mavis felt luke warm ,no less so from Gerald. Our tour company had told us we would be given a lift to a local venue for our evening meal.This was not offered, although there are no eateries within reasonable walking distance even for hardy walkers, and when we enquired about a lift we felt uncomfortable for having done so.That said Gerald did give us a lift , and, in out opinion with reluctance ,collected us later.
I am aware that Aidenfield is up for sale and can't help but speculate that the reasons for the sale may have something to do with why the reviews did not match up to expectation. That said the room was spacious and clean despite having' ancient 'magazines . In my opinion breakfast was nothing special compared to other Northumberland breakfasts taken on the journey and I am left unable to recommend Aidenfield as a place to stay.

We wanted a central point to explore Northumberland & chose this B&B from the internet. We stayed for 3 nights and Mavis & Gerald the owners made us feel very welcome, our room overlooked the front of the house and was one of the largest and cleanest bedrooms we have ever stayed in. The en suite bathroom was also of a good size and had a roomy shower in it and fresh towels were provided each day. The bedroom had two easy chairs from which you could watch television - sky tv was provided - there was tea and coffee making facilities and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Breakfast is served in a lovely guest's sitting room and nothing was too much trouble for Mavis, she cooked an excellent meal each morning which kept us going until the evening. There is plenty of choice of cooked items, cereals or continental and copious supplies of tea and coffee. We ate a couple of nights in the pub in the next village which was very good and we can't recommend this B&B highly enough, it made our first visit to Northumberland complete.

Room Tip: Any of them as they all have good views and are quiet.

We can only echo what other people have said about Aidanfield, where we stopped for a night on our tour of the Northumberland Coastal path. Perfect in every way. Many thanks to Mavis and Gerald for all their (extremely successful) efforts to make us feel at home - just sorry we couldn't stay longer.

We were walking St. Cuthberts Way and were tired and dirty when we arrived. Hosts Mavis and Gerald made our 1 nght stay here most enjoyable. They do everything they can to make you feel welcome. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms were spacious, very comfortable and immaculate. Breakfast too was excellent. We had our own spacious lounge where we were able to enjoy Downton Abbery on TV! Gerald is very amusing in an understated way....we enjoyed his company, and Mavis's too of course. Gerald even gave us a lift to the local pub/restaurtant and collected us when we wanted to come home. We can't recommend this B and B highly enough! Wish they were all as good as Aidenfield.

Room Tip: Both rooms are lovely!

If you want to understand the difference between a B & B and a guesthouse, just come here! In fact, this must be one of the few purpose-built guesthouses in the country. Our room was wonderfully spacious, with panoramic views over the immaculate garden, through the fields to the sea. To call it luxurious would be an understatement. There is also an equally beautiful guests’ sitting room, where breakfast is taken. Predictably, this was a top-class spread, using local produce. The Turners are welcoming, generous hosts. They realise that many of their guests are walkers on their way to Holy Island, who are tired and without transport. So they offer you a free lift to and from your dinner – in our case, at the Lindisfarne Inn up the A1 (pretty good food, incidentally). The following morning, Mavis promised to ensure that our baggage was transferred to the island before the tide came in. This was most reassuring, and typical of her concern. Of all the places we stayed at during our 7-day walk, this place will live longest in the memory – and for all the right reasons!

After another long wet day of walking Mavis offered to dry our wet gear. The room was lovely and tastefully decorated. The views across to the nearby coast were fabulous. Although dinner was not offered a recommendation to visit 'The Black Bull' in Lowick was excellent along with the food. A very good selection was offered at Breakfast. After leaving our car at the property whilst we walked St Cuthbert's Way and further to the hospitality received I would throughly recommend this guesthouse.
