Redfoot Lea Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 69 Alnwick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 19, 2012

This was our second visit to Redfoot Lea, but this time we took friends with us.As before , the welcome was great, the decor;modern country house hotel style,bedrooms;spotless and luxurious,breakfasts;excellent.I would recommend the home made cake we had every day on our return from days out.Our friends were suitably impressed. It is all to do with attention to detail, such as the flavoured water on the hospitality tray, the glass of wine or tea on arrival, the extra heater in the bedrooms if you feel cold( which we did not).It is also very good if you are not good on stairs as two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor.The property is not in the centre of Alnwick but about 5 minutes drive outside. This means that parking is easy; right outside your bedroom in fact, and you are more likely to visit some country pubs instead of staying with the largely 'run of the mill' fayre' in Alnwick town centre.Philly is a wonderful host, being attentive and interested in your hoilday without being obtrusive, a hard balance to achieve.All in all probably the best B&B we have stayed in and there have been a few.

Well, this spring saw our seventh visit to Redfoot Lea, and it never fails to impress. Philly has created an immaculate home and always looks after us so well. Breakfasts are superb, and the hospitality tray in the rooms, including home-made every day, are first-class. You can see why people go back time and again to this lovely B&B. Looking forward to the next time .....

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, so don't worry which you choose!

This review is a bit overdue but better late than never!
Redfoot Lea provides a wonderfully relaxing, peaceful base to explore the area around Alnwick. Philly creates a supremely comfortable environment and looks after her guests so beautifully that many of us come back again and again. We are now all set for a follow up visit this June. Can't wait!

Three visits and all excellent! Redfoot Lea is such a lovely place to stay. The accomodation is beautifully planned, extremely clean and without doubt the best B & B accomodation we have ever stayed in ( an opinion shared by our daughter, who joined us on 2 occasions). Philly and Andrew are attentive but not not intrusive hosts with an encyclopedic knowledge of where to eat, visit and shop. The breakfasts have never been anything other than delicious and generous. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when in that area and intend to visit again soon. We unreservedly recommend Redfoot Lea to anyone.

Well I really cannot stay away from Redfoot Lea and the wonderful Philly - as I type out this review I have already booked in for another visit. For me Redfoot Lea is the perfect B+B accomodation, beautifully designed yet practical, a warm hostess yet not intrusive (definitely ask Philly for dinner recommnedations, she knows the local area extremely well). The location is very good for getting into Alnick and the beautiful surrounding areas. You cannot fail to relax and feel happy in such a place. Have I mentioned the breakfasts? Delicious, varied, superb quality ingredients...just hard to decide what to have. Thorough and whole hearted recommendation, again!

I booked Redfoot Lea Bed and Breakfast after a previous stay and once again was not disappointed. Philly is such a warm hostess making you feel so welcome. The cleanliness and quality of the property is exceptional and you truly feel that you have arrived home. I could not recommend this property enough and my family travelling with me rated everywhere else they stayed compared to this. Nowhere came close! If only there was a Redfoot Lea Bed and Breakfast in every village and city in England, Philly would earn a fortune telling others how to do it.

Only wish we'd been able to stay more than the one night we did here! As most reviews already state, Philippa and Andrew are amazing hosts, and make you feel as if you'd known them for years! Their home is exquisite, relaxing too, yet has that very much lived-in atmosphere all around it. As for food - amazing, fresh and really tasty. If you haven't yet had the opportunity of a stay at Redfoot Lea, you must...you need to experience it for yourself. Check out their website for much more detail of this B&B / self-catering gem! Oh, and Alnwick is a gorgoeus place too to explore :-)
