The farmhouse is well located not far off the A1 south of Berwick, with plenty of places to visit nearby. The hosts are lovely and friendly, and do a good breakfast. We stayed in the "Gold Room", which was a good comfortable size, with a...More

My husband and I stayed in their ensuite room for two nights, the room was nice and clean. Good shower water pressure. Easy to find location, friendly hosts. Good breakfast but sausages have room for improvement!

So, Barbara & Eric also have a bunkhouse near the farm called Raglan. Avoid at all costs, in fact avoid Barbara & Eric as they have no idea how to run a hospitality business. Firstly, they took payment from an unauthorized source for a filthy...More

If you look for a really friendly service, a quiet place with a nice view and a freshly home cooked English breakfast then this is the place for you. The family room is basic, so not every one might like it, but it was just...More

Having just read your comments on the Old Farmhouse, Ancroft. We have been going there every year since 2010, in fact we are just back from yet another enjoyable stay there. Your complaints in our opinion are extremely unjustifiable and very unfair. Yes, you are met at the door by two lovely Labradors playing with their blanket, but what is wrong with that, it is a Farmhouse after all, not a five star Hotel. As for your other complaints, stains on the carpet, the place is spotless, we have never found stains on the carpet or elsewhere. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds, nice linen, we have never found the milk lumpy as you say you did, but anyway, there is milk supplied for guests in the downstairs sitting room. The tray in the rooms is just for emergencies. As for the breakfasts, there is everything you could wish for and of excellent quality. Barbara and Eric are the perfect hosts who cant do enough for their guests. Why do you think we go every year? If you just look at the comments of the other guests, I think that will prove our point!

You've sent this to the wrong reviewer I'm afraid. The only comment I do concur with is the curdled milk in the cartons; I had one in my bedroom hospitality tray. I told Barbara about it, but it was so minor, given that I... More
