What a wonderful place to stay. Stayed 2 nights and wished we'd booked more. A lovely cottage with friendly owners who were so attentive to our needs. They went over and above in providing everything that we might have needed during the stay in the room from a mini sewing kit to playing cards to even q shoehorn. There were little treats in the room too, chocolate and water in the fridge and caramel shortbread with a coffee making machine and fresh milk too. There were local maps for planning walks too. The breakfast was to order and brought to the room. On the first morning we had stotties; one with bacon and one with sausage and they were absolutely scrumptious. On the second morning we had fresh fruit and yoghurt with warm, fresh pastries. Scrummy. Richard, the owner was so helpful and interested in our plans to discover the local area. It was lovely to meet Sandra too. It was the little things that helped make this stay a wonderful one and the room was decorated so beautifully too. We hope to return.

My wife and I had the most delightful stay for two nights. The location was ideal as a base for exploring Northumberland. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming as well as attentive to all our needs to make our stay pleasant and memorable. The accommodation was kept spotlessly clean and adhered to the Covid 19 cleanliness regulations. The breakfasts were served to our room and the locally sourced produce, choice and cooking were brilliant. The room had a balcony and a sea view at the other side. The bed was so comfortable and supportive. Overall everything was catered for and we would highly recommend this as a place to stay. We plan to return in due course.

From the moment we arrived our hosts Richard & Sandra were very friendly, helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble . The room was outstanding, as can be seen from the pictures. Lots of personal touches were a lovely surprise. Breakfast was extremely good, local produce and ample portions. Gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Well situated close to A1 yet very peaceful location. We will definitely be returning.

An extremely well ran B&B immaculately clean throughout. Amazing small touches make for a very relaxed stay away from home. Richard & Sandra are the perfect hosts, very helpful if you need any information about the area. Delicious breakfast left by your door at the time of your choice, we were in the downstairs room with a beautiful tropical type terrace to enjoy your breakfast listening to the birds sing. A highly recommended B & B which in our opinion could not be improved upon as every detail has been thought through.
