Looking for some suggestions for places in Northumberland. I'm not sure if it's best to be based in the middle and travel around or opt for two locations. Maybe Rothbury or somewhere round there and then Berwick?
The plan was to have 2 nights in York and then head up for about 4 nights.
Possible places I've identified so far are:
Kirkbank house - Berwick on Tweed (looks lovely) - I'm defiantly thinking of 1-2 nights here
Newton Hall - Nt Alnwick - Very new and no reviews. I'm worried that this is mostly a wedding venue and we would be either very quiet or swamped with a wedding?
St Cuthbert's House - Seahouses, great reviews, but I would rather have a slightly bigger hotel with dining options
Likewise The Orchard House, Rothbury - good reviews and some great deals at the moment, but B&B only
Doxford Hall Hotel - bit big and traditional? I prefer boutique style accommodation
Blackmore's of Alnwick (looks good on the website, but some pretty poor reviews on Tripadvisor)
Any suggestions of the best way to approach this or split the day would be great.
