Just what you require to recharge your batteries. I also took the opportunity to book a massage with Lynn which was amazing and unlike any I have experienced... More

We've been coming some 15 years now and just love the peace and solitude here 👌 Such a lovely part of the world, and here in the middle it's so easy to discover new things to see and do even after all these years 😆 We'd totally forgotten Lyn does a packup lunch, and you really MUST have some of...

Going to this place was like finding a gem. Stunning surrounds, comfortable bed and a view to fields and horses. Seriously one of the best B&Bs I've stayed in - and we use them a lot. I particularly appreciated Lynn's attentiveness, tea in the garden and home made bread

Lyn is an exceptionally engaging host, very welcoming and full of ideas. There is a very natural feel about the place ... real fresh milk and no little cartons of UHT because who actually enjoys that?? No mobile signal for my O2 network, but Lyn very happy for us to use her phone for national calls. Lovely room (though bedding... More

We returned to Callaly Cottage Retreat and it was just as lovely as last time. Lynn is great and can't do enough, she's full of good ideas and very knowledgeable of the area. Had a walk around Holme Park on the edge of Alnwick, then we went to the castle gardens which was an amazing place. Alnwick is a lovely... More

We booked into Callaly Cottage Retreat really to fill a gap between needing to see friends in the Scottish Borders and spending the evening at Keilder Observatory the evening before. We're pleased we did and wished it was a longer stay. Lyn is such a lovely host, making you feel very welcome and at ease. With beautiful rooms, a cracking... More

We stayed 2 nights over last weekend. We usually stay on the coast, but were really pleased to experience this beautiful countryside location. Room 1 is very big and has a lovely calming muted pale green and wood décor. Also electric blankets on the beds, which was very nice. Very nice touches such as Twinings tea bags, nice biscuits, lots... More

This is a really wonderful bed and breakfast in the peaceful countryside, a pleasant drive away from Alnwick. We could see horses outside the window, which added nicely to the countryside feeling. Breaky was great, highly recommend the kippers! We had a luxurious bathroom with a lovely bathtub, and the bedroom had a generous amount of space. Furnishings were of... More

We almost reluctant to write this review as we want to keep this wonderful haven all to ourselves! Callaly Cottage Retreat is by far the best stay we have had in Northumberland.
