I can't understand why anyone would look for a chain hotel when there are guest house gems like this one to stay in. Audrey and Tom are fantastic hosts, welcoming from the first step through the door.
We stayed in the family room with our 11 year old, possibly the best family room we've ever stayed in. The room was beautifully furnished and had plenty of space; the website photos don't do it justice.
The food was excellent and breakfast scrambled egg is always for me a good measure of quality in any accommodation, only individual and instant preparation works, and here it's perfect.
The area is great for exploring in any weathers; Cragside, Alnwick Gardens (take a towel and spare set of clothes for the kids!), Barter Books, Low Newton by the Sea, the castles. There are plenty of good quality and interesting cafes and restaurants in Alnwick, it's a really good base.
Thank-you Audrey and Tom, we'll be back!More
