Spent a very pleasant three nights here in July 2016! The property is located about half a mile off the A1, in Newton on the Moor. It proved a great base from which to explore the north east coastal towns and villages. Our hosts Steve and Yvonne made us very welcome. On arrival, we were offered a pot of hot... More

Thanks to Steve and Yvonne for a lovely weekend break. They welcomed us with a smile and continued to make us feel at home during the 3 days away. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in the beautiful gardens and house only a few miles away from the Alnwick town centre. Both ourselves and our friends from Scotland really enjoyed being there and... More

Good pub 5 mins walk with excellent food and a great pint (sometimes lacking in this part of the world) Very handy for the coast, Cragside, Hadrians Wall. Don't try to find a parking place in...

Absolutely delightful - the perfect place for a chilled break away from it all! Yvonne and Steve are so friendly and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived with afternoon tea which we enjoyed on the patio overlooking their fabulous countryside garden right through to the exceptional breakfasts made to order. A wonderful selection on offer and most... More

This lovely, comfortable small hotel is an absolute gem. Yvonne and Steve did all we could have asked for to ensure we were made to feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, even offering to run us into Alnwick if we were unable to book a taxi! The breakfast were divine, eggs couldn't have been much fresher since they keep... More

This is a pristinely stunning small hotel run by a husband and wife team who love their place and love to provide a great resource. The bedroom was beautiful, making terrific use of space and with everything of the highest possible standard. The bed was heaven, with beautiful white Egyptian cotton bed-linen and with lovely colour coordination of the coverings,... More

Yvonne & Steve make your stay at the Old School absolutely perfect! Nothing is too much trouble for them and they certainly go the extra mile. The rooms are extremely well appointed and home from home comfortable, even down to having robes that are the right size. The house is beautiful and set in lovely grounds with wild life all... More
