This may be the best B&B I have experienced. Usually, I shoot for 50 pounds and in the country or small town so this was about double my target, yet the experience was well worth every pence.
The gardens are amazing with Jeff trimming and pruning all the while we were staying - it is quintessential England! The grounds are award winning and the manor house is also restored to a museum quality with all state-of-the art bath fittings and comfort features. This is an amazing place.
We stayed in rooms #6 and #10 with #10 being quite the master bedroom with two balconies and HUGE. Both were well appointed with the highest quality linens and special touches like chocolates and quality bath supplies.
I could not recommend a better place with access to Hadrian's wall and a cute town adjacent, much of it 13th century and quite well maintained. We stayed an extra night in the apartment with self-catering kitchen - also lovely and of the highest quality.
Jeff and Christine were very friendly and helpful. They have run the place for 17 years and upgraded all to the highest of standards!
