“Worth leaving the highway for”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Northumberland Cottage B&B. Chevington Moor. Morpeth. Northumberland.
We saw the sign for this B&B on the A1 as we headed for Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It is not very far off the main road and is prominently signed after about one mile.
A nice little two storey cottage that has been on the market for three years. This sale listing has not detracted from the welcome and we were received warmly and shown to a room on the ground floor that had two single beds and adequate en-suite plus a magnificent view over the (wet) farm fields of Northumberland.
After the usual introductions and instructions we were informed that, for an evening meal, we could eat locally or drive to Morpeth. As the local eatery, a pub, (The Widdrington) was three miles away and Morpeth more than that we decided to eat locally. This is a country pub and restaurant.
The sleeping comfort was excellent and the facilities in the en-suite worked wonderfully.
Breakfast is served in a very nice pergola/sun room attached to the accommodation and was excellent. Plenty of everything and pleasantly presented and served.
Our farewell was as warm our welcome and we would definitely stay in this well presented and moderately priced North East England B&B again.

Booked this B&B as we were attending a wedding at Eshott Hall. We were able to check in early so that we could get ready which was very much appreciated. The owner was really helpful and gave us directions, details of a taxi company, nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable, clean with lovely little extras. We enjoyed a cooked breakfast the next morning with fantastic views over the countryside. For us, a perfect base to attend the wedding at Eshott Hall!

We stayed there for a few days while visiting the beautiful region of Northumberland. The accommodation was beautiful, very comfortable, clean and tidy. Beautiful views on the countryside. We stayed in the room on the ground floor, facing the entrance, and despite being near the road, it was quiet and so comfortable. The room was very clean with all the necessary to make our stay comfortable. Clean linen and bedding. The bathroom was very clean, cleaned every day, with fresh towels and beauty products for the shower.
The host was charming, very friendly, attentive and helpful. Breakfast was very nice, in a beautiful room at the back with unlimited views of the countryside. The food was great, with a variety of cereals, fruits, yoghurts and a beautifully cooked English breakfast, with great ingredients and enough to keep you going!
The cottage is very well situated at a few minutes only from the beautiful town of Morpeth, with very nice restaurants and local shops and on the axes to Newcastle, Alnick and other beautiful places.
It was a wonderful experience, and we would strongly recommend the accommodation.

Top quality bed and linen. Superb bathroom with quality fittings. Fantastic views from the top room. A lounge area in this particular room was blissful at the end of a busy day with uninterrupted views over hills and fields yet minutes from the A1. A rural and quiet stay yet easily back on the A1 for going up to Alnwick. Delicious breakfast in a relaxed atmosphere. Ricky was genuine and welcoming with nothing too much trouble. Our little heavenly retreat! Thank you.

Room Tip: Talk to Ricky the host.
