“another great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

having enjoyed a weekend in the farm house we decided to try the self catering cottages we stay in the one called Emma.very cosy bed room down stairs to the left as you walk in with a bathroom connected by a door in the bedroom.the you go up a spiral stair case to a lovely room with everything you need for your stay(only thing missing no wi fi)but that did not spoil are stay,large flat screen tv full kitchen with dish washer micro wave hob and oven.you can use a washing machine in the out house if you wish.You can have a breakfast if you want in the farm house and what a breakfast you get loads of different cereal fresh fruit yogurts full Northumberland toast and home made jam.

on top of that Dorothy your host will tell you anything you want to know about the area we have booked for a week next year. if you go you will not be dissapionted

Situated just outside of the charming coastal village of Alnmouth, this Farmhouse B & B with self catering cottage's is a real find. We stayed in the farmhouse in the four poster room absolutely perfect. Beautifully decorated with fine views over fields out towards the sea and coquet island. The decor is elegant and antique style, spotless shower onsuite with arran toiletries and the fluffiest towels. On arrival we were greeted by Dorothy who was friendly, professional and offered refreshments on arrival, tea and biscuits served in the delightful garden.
We enquired about taxi's into Alnmouth and were amazed when our hosts offered us a lift into the village and gave us numbers to arrange transport back! Thank you so much.
The bed is extemely comfortable, the shower powerful and with plentiful hot water. The nightout in Alnmouth was lovely with a nice meal in the Red Lion. Taxi back was provided by the very amiable Yellow Taxi's. A fantastic night's sleep was followed by one of the best breakfast's ever.
A huge array of cereals,yoghurts, fresh fruit, juice etc. Toast and local preserves and choice of cooked breakfast including kipper's and porridge. Every item on the menu traces it's local providence such as the eggs from Mrs Riddle and their location. The food is cooked to perfection by Dorothy. As A veggie i can vouch for the poached eggs. My partner said he would gladly pay the cover charge for the sausage alone! praise indeed. We have stayed at some five star hotel's which cannot match the service and quality provided here. I can't wait to return or recommend highly enough. Thank you Dorothy and Brian, look forward to seeing you agian soon.

Room Tip: Four poster fabulous, however self catering look great too!

We've been back again! We have stayed at Bilton Barns a number of times now and would highly recommend it. Bilton Barns benefits from a peaceful position in the countryside with attractive views out to sea yet is also within easy reach of nearby villages, places to eat, sandy beaches, castles and many other local attractions. The large bedrooms in the farmhouse are beautifully furnished and decorated and the beds are very comfortable. The entrance and hall areas have also just been refurbished and are lovely. The hosts are very welcoming and are happy to help in any way - their breakfast is second to none with fresh fruits and yogharts and a cooked breakfast made to order which is exceptional. I am sure we will be back again!

Fantastic cottage, lovely sea views, furnished to a very high standard with attention to detail. Spacious living room and very comfortable beds. Very friendly, welcoming and accomodating hosts.
Excellent position for exploring surrounding areas, very close to pretty village and great beach, short drive to Alnwick.
Highly recommended.

We took the 3 linked cottages Stephen Brian and Dorothy for our large extended family and it was perfect. The enclosed garden was a godsend for the smaller children. Plenty of room for all of us to gather together in the kitchen/lounge and 2 toilets in each cottage. French doors at the back made coming and going simple and safe. Dorothy and Brian were very helpful and the cottages were comfortable and relaxing. Plenty of parking out front - again very safe. Also stored our bikes in the shed. Nearest big supermarket by the back road was Sainsbury's at 10mins. Alnwick is lovely but traffic was slow! Alnmouth 2 miles away is delightful as is Warkworth along the coast. Lots to see in the area. We had poor weather but it didn't stop us all thoroughly enjoying our stay

Have not stayed in B & B for some time but Bilton Barns came recommended. Touring the North East for a few days, we arrived from a Premier Inn in Durham. Bilton Barns is more expensive but has far better location and charm. Slightly disappointed upon entering as the public areas ( Entrance Hall, Sitting Room and Conservatory) are a little shabby but the bedrooms are excellent and the bed linen and towels crisp and clean. Standard of decoration in the rooms is very good indeed and the furnishings practical in pleasant 'antique' style. The Jackson family very welcoming and helpful hosts. Choice and quality of breakfast food cannot be faulted. Would not hesitate to return.

We spent 3 nights recently at Bilton Barns and cannot say enough good about this establishment. The house and rooms were spacious, clean, well appointed and modern. Mrs Jackson is a a very personable host who cooks one of the best breakfasts that I have ever had. I thoroughly recommend the house as being the ideal place to visit coastal Northumberland especially if you want to be near Alnwick and Alnmouth but far enough away to have absolute peace and quiet.
