We booked to stay here as we were attending a wedding locally. The owners were very welcoming and let us drop off our bags and vehicles early. The rooms are lovely and the beds extremely comfy, perfect after a night of dancing. The milk in the thermos flask at our door was a lovely touch. Breakfast was delicious with cereals,... More

The room was clean and fresh, tea and coffee was provided with a flask of fresh milk which was a nice touch. The location is a ten minute drive into Berwick upon tweed where there are a number of good... More

We stayed in a lovely 1st floor room with views over the garden into the woods, we enjoyed absolutely silent nights in a comfortable bed with absolute darkness assured by the curtains. We found this a perfect base for exploration of Berwick and it's surrounds and were charmed by a wide variety of wild birds visiting the garden feeders during... More

Stayed only one night. We received a warm welcome, the rooms are very comfortable and warm and it's lovely and peaceful. The hosts are friendly and very helpful to visitors. The breakfast is substantial and tasty. Well situated for exploring the borders and Berwick. I recommend this B&B.

We stayed here for our 33rd wedding anniversary in Room 1. Alan and Carol were very good hosts with good knowledge of what to do in the area. The room was immaculate and the bathroom with it's double Jacuzzi bath was outstanding, breakfast was very nice and ample.

An excellent three room B&B. The hosts, John & Maureen, are welcoming and leave you with the impression that nothing is too much trouble for them. Rooms are spotless with all the facilities you could need, and car parking is ample. Breakfasts are superb, and sometimes accompanied by John on the Organ. In short, a gem of a find, and... More

Maureen & John were both extremely welcoming and we had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay. The location is very rural but not far away from Berwick or the many attractions of North Northumberland.
