A lovely B and B just outside Allendale, with the added attraction (for cat lovers) of three Maine Coons and three other kitties. The house has lovely gardens and lots of character. Very comfortable and convenient for Hadrian's Wall and other lovely parts of Northumberland.

We travelled here for a New Year's celebration. We could not have wished for a more welcoming host than Eileen. Tea and cakes on arrival, tasty breakfasts and lots of advice on walks/scenic places we wanted to visit. The feline residents were equally as charming. A wonderful
