Had a very enjoyable two night stay at the Old School over the August Bank Holiday. Owners Steve and Yvonne were very accommodating, and cooked up a pretty mean breakfast to boot. Our room was very characterful, with a pitched roof and beams, but we were still able to enjoy all the mod cons like WiFi. Outside the room was... More

Stayed here in July to meet up with old friends. Yvonne and Steve couldn't do enough for us and when our friends arrived they brought us tea cake upstairs to enable us to see the beautiful garden and wood. Perfect breakfast, room and just about everything! They really make you feel welcome without imposing. Will be back soon!

Greeted by Yvonne and Steve, a lovely friendly couple, on arrival, and given a short tour of house with a bit of the history, and met the parrot, before having tea and cake. Lovely house and gardens. Had a lovely room at the front of the house. The shower cubicle would not be suitable for large people, but was ok... More

My parents used to own this house and the interior modifications to change it into a B&B look to be excellent and tastefully done. The garden is beatiful and is still pretty much the same. Nearby Alnwick Castle made several guest appearances in Downton Abbey and Alnwick (pronounced Anick) is a great little town.

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
