South Buckton B&B
Ranked #12 of 13 Belford B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 18, 2012

If Lindisfarne, Holy Island, Bamburgh or Seahouses is your destination, you can't do better than staying here. Carol and John run an excellent B&B. Comfortable and spacious rooms, excellent breakfasts and very helpful on local information and advice. Great location for birders.

All in all a very pleasant place to stay. Breakfast was first class. The rooms were all very clean and finished to a high standard. Carol & John were very welcoming and accommodating with our needs. I would have no hesitation recommending this as a place to stay if you are visiting the area. All rooms had a view on to Lindisfarne, which is only 10 minutes away in an automobile. Very, very good.

A beautiful house with magnificant rooms and views to make a long weekend just perfect. Both John and Carol were very welcoming and extremely helpful in advising us on a day out. The location was perfect, only 5 minutes drive to Holy Island and 10 minutes drive to Bamburgh. There are 2 pubs nereby which serve fantastic meals. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at South Buckton and will definatley be going back.

John and Carol have turned their beautiful home into a most desireable place to stay overnight, for a weekend, short break or for a leisurely holiday week! We were lucky to get a very late booking but imagine that will be very hard to get in the future because once people discover this one they will have a constant stream of visitors. From the website we were a bit apprehensive because it really did look 'too good to be true'. Advertising their 4 poster king-size bedroom with sea views to Lindisfarne Island at an extremely reasonable price - we were nervous.....would we be sorely disappointed? Would the traffic noise from the close by A1 keep us up all night? Imagine our delight when we were warmly welcomed at the easy to find farmhouse and ushered into exactly what was described - and more. There were 2 large windows in the bedroom filling the place with light and affording incredible coast, island and countryside views. Everything was so nice in the room that it was a shame to go to sleep! But sleep we did and very soundly. But it was well worth waking for the rising sun perfectly arranged over Lindisfarne castle, framed by our bedroom window! Breakfast is served in the beautiful residents lounge/diningroom again with its panoramic views and great windows. We had asked for recommendations for evening eating places and only a few miles away were delighted with excellent food at both Lindisfarne Inn and The Barn at Beal. Truth be told we had eaten so much in the restaurants that we couldn't do John's choice of cooked breakfasts justice...but we thought the fresh seasonal fruit a real treat and the choice of breakfast items amazing! With everything they have managed to put together great quality very simply - we loved it. We had private use of the spacious bathroom with its good size bath and nice toiletries too...oh and wonderful towels. We usually have an en-suite bathroom but think with only 2 other rooms there wouldn't be a problem having shared facilities in the future, esp since there is an extra separate wc and sink. Northumberland is a lovely place to visit, Lindisfarne is very special and so close. Carol and John have created a luxury b & b with a very simple homely feel at very affordable rates. Very very comfortable. But don't tell everyone!!!!!!!! It's just our secret! Somewhere along the A1. England. About one hour from Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle to the south. Excellent touring location.

Room Tip: Room No 1 is the 4 poster....beautiful.
