This is a glorious place for tranquility with access to many different walks taking you gently in the valley or climbing to the ancient hill forts. Within easy reach of famous Border castles and the dramatic and beautiful coastline.A day on Holy Island is very special and a visit to The Duchess of Northumberland's garden is high on the list of priorities. we are well into summer now although it doesn't feel warm enough!
This North Northumberland B&B has inspired views of the surrounding Cheviot Hills and is in one of the most beautiful settings in Northumberland. It is a perfect place for peace and relaxation. There are many paths straight out of the door for walkers and the valley is renowned for its conservation and wildlife. The colours are wonderful and the garden is producing some excellent vegetables and fruit. We have only one cygnet this year and three barn owls on the hill opposite and the sea trout have been running up the river much better than last year although it is certainly bracing if you take a dip yourself!
Martin and Eildon have lived here for 29 years and they have considerable knowledge of the surrounding hills and the local area.It is also within easy distance of many famous Border castles and the glorious beaches of Northumberland.
Eildon, who is an excellent cook, can produce dinner for you by arrangement with local produce served in front of a log fire on winter evenings. Vegetarian food has become one of her specialties with many vegetables out of their productive garden. Also a large choice of game is available. I normally charge £25 for courses or £18 for 2 courses.
The bedrooms have lots of room with very comfortable beds and lovely cotton sheets and large towels. The sitting room is cosy with an open fire and dining table where you can eat supper if you wish. I normally charge £25 for 3 courses or £18 for 2 courses. if there is something you particularly like to eat I will try to cook it! There is now a wifi connection which has now been brought up to a higher standard.
