“great stop on the Coast and Castles route”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had 2 nights with Judy on our long distance cycle trip heading north. She was so very welcoming - we arrived at an awkward time, so she hid the key for us as she was walking the dog and we let ourselves in - a gorgeous room with superb view over the farne Islands - well worth the boat trip by the way. 2 days gave us a chance to see Bamburgh castle also. Nothing seemed too much trouble, and breakfast was just the ticket for hungry cyclists. a lovely lounge for guest use also, with free chocolate - what's not to love?!!

Just returned from a 2 night stay with Judy at Gunrock, this was our first visit but it won't be our last. Judy is a fantastic host, she offered us tea and biscuits when we arrived and gave us lots of advice on what to do in the area. We followed her suggestion taking a boat trip the following day which was fantastic. Our room was super and the views to the farne islands were breath taking.

on arriving at gun rock I was thrilled on entering our room (farne) it was a cosy beautifully decorated room with a bathroom to die for and a breathtaking view from our balcony..

breakfast was absolutely fantastic judy was a brilliant host, whom cooked everything fresh and gave off a very relaxed and friendly vibe. She was always keen to give any advice and could easily solve any issues or concerns you may have.

The hotel was spick and span with a fabulous eye for details with the cosy log fire in the front of room and the bowl of sweets in the centre off the table which my partner took full advantage off!

Staying at gun rock has been a well needed break and both myself and my partner have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we would deffinetley reccomend. Gun rock offers everything you need to have a relaxing stay and more, great value for money and judy is the most welcoming host you will meet! We shall see you again!

Just returned from a four day stay; everything was perfect. Judy met us with tea, biscuits and advice about places to visit and to eat - her advice proved very useful. The room was very clean and the towels and toiletries luxurious. The lounge was inviting and comfortable.

Breakfast was outstanding - cereals and a bowl of fresh summer fruit, the English Breakfast was first rate ( local produce) and cooked to order. Toast and home made jam finished the feast each morning.

If you want sea views this place is a must - the full length picture windows allow a full view of the Farne Islands and an ever changing vista.

Nothing is too much trouble for Judy - thank you!

Room Tip: We had Longstone but Farne has the same view.

Gun Rock is a fantastic b&b. We have just returned from a six day stay there at the end of our 14 day trip to Scotland and the north-east of England. It could not have been a better place to stay.

Located across the road from the beach Gun Rock guarantees outstanding gorgeous views from bed and balcony straight out to Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, The Farne Islands and - depending on the weather - unforgetable sunrises. Our very nice decorated cosy room (named Longstone) had a confortable bed, a perfect bathroom and was cleaned up every day.

Judy, who runs the b&b, is very lovely and welcoming. She took a lot of time to explain the area and gave us a lot of helpful information about the best places to stay and eat. The breakfast is very nice and, especially the always fresh fruits, prepared with love. The breakfast includes the option to get local kipper. We loved that, even in the morning.

Now, back in Germany, we are still dreaming of our perfect stay at Gun Rock. We recommend this b&b without any limitation.

Gun rock is very small, very homely and friendly. It doesn't feel like staying in a B&B, more like staying at friends. Judy is very welcoming and took time to explain the area and things to do. Her dog Lola is a lovely great dane/ridgeback cross who will sit on your knee!

Our room overlooked the sea and had fantastic views of the beach from the balcony. It's a great location too, less than 5 mins to Seahouses centre and 2 mins to the beach. Breakfast was great too and Judy will happily cook to your preferences. We'd recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: 2 at the front with balcony overlooking sea are best.

We have just returned from a two day stay at this fantastic b&b. Our first visit wiil definately not be our last, we loved it. Judy is the perfect host. Met with friendly information and a lovely cuppa/coffe we were made to feel at home immediately. The Gun Rock has views to die for, ours the Harbour room suited us to perfection. Lovely comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and copious amounts of hot water enabled us to relax at our leisure. Everywhere spotlessly clean, beautiful breakfast personally cooked by Judy. Without hesitation we will recommend this great b&b to everyone, well done Judy

Room Tip: book early to avoid disappointment
