We were going to a wedding at nearby Bamburgh Castle, and needed a B&B, and this fitted the bill perfectly! It's a very grand 'family' house, with lovely grounds and loads of parking. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and it's very clean. The breakfast was lovely, with various locally sourced foods. We had the large bedroom on the website, which was large and well appointed (some have said dated, but this is the style of the house) - the only comment is the small TV (although that's not why we were there!!).
It's situated about 1-1.5 miles from Bamburgh. We had a lovely (and very easy) walk along the beach to Bamburgh, which took about 40 mins. However, the walk back was along the road (we didnt have torches to brave the beech!), which although very quiet, has no pavement. So we would certainly recommend PRE-BOOKING a taxi - it was suggested that there may be taxis hanging around in Bamburgh - there certainly were not at the end of the night.
All in all, a great (not-so-little) B&B a stones throw away from Bamburgh.
