Cannot comment on B&B accomodation ( which sounds great ) as we live not too far away; but I was advised to try here by a chef who highly rated the tearoom. Called in or lunch and had high tea!. A superb soup, well presented and tasty sandwiches and the most sublime piece of cake I have had in a... More

We stayed here, my husband, myself and my granddaughter for one night on our way to Edinburgh. Gill and Andrew were very welcoming. Our rooms were lovely. Breakfast was excellent. Lots of choice. I love porridge and it was very good. Home made jams and marmalade were delicious, as was the home made bread. Home made cookies were also very... More

A lovely tearoom with the perfect Afternoon Tea. Everything homemade, the bread, the jam (at least 10+ to choose from), cakes and desserts. The owners and staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. In a world offering afternoon tea on every corner and Groupon selling vouchers by the vanload, I am more than happy to pay the... More

We have now stayed in Middle Holly Cottage several times, including twice since the current owners have been operating it. I last reviewed it in May 2015. It's a very convenient stopover point for us en route from our home to Scotland. However, it's such a pity that our stays are usually very short as it really is very good.... More

Brightly furnished and all the comforts you'd need. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and homemade biscuits were on offer. The room itself was of a high standard and spotless.... More

Lovely tea room close to Forton. We had a sandwich followed by a scone and cake. Everything was perfect, the sandwich on excellent homemade bread with a lovely side salad and decent crisps ( not the usual excuse for a salad!) the scone perfect with a choice of 10+ homemade jams and the stout (yes that's right...) chocolate cake divine....
