Good Hotel Guide Review

Get back to the land at Enid Nelless’s ‘beautiful’, rustic B&B close to the banks of the River Coquet. The Nelless family have farmed locally for three generations; the creeper-clad Georgian farmhouse stands in a ‘peaceful’ spot on the family’s 720-acre organic livestock farm. (Remote, too – bring a good map.) Pictures and antiques adorn the pretty, traditionally furnished bedrooms; extra touches include fresh milk and home-baked biscuits. After a day’s romping in the countryside (‘take time to admire the sheep’), help yourself to a glass of sherry in the lounge before sitting down to a hearty roast, perhaps of Thistleyhaugh lamb shoulder, at 7 pm. Cooked by the hostess and her daughter-in-law, Zoë, the communal dinner with ‘interesting’ fellow guests can be ‘great fun’ – a fine accompaniment to the ‘excellent hospitality and cooking’. At breakfast, fresh fruit, cereals and yogurt are followed by cooked dishes including a full English and Craster kippers. A good base for exploring the gardens at Alnwick and Howick Hall; the coast is half an hour away. (M Arnold, Gwyn Morgan)

Guest comments

'I confirm all the salient points in the GHG review. Interesting fellow guests. Take time to admire the sheep. ' - E M Arnold - October, 2015
'We have stayed here before, and it was like coming home: such a beautiful house, full of nooks and crannies, lots of beautiful furniture and ornaments - but it's Mrs. Nelless who makes it so special, with her friendliness and easy conversation. Our room was large and well equipped. The bathroom had a splendid roll-top bath with a powerful shower over it. Breakfasts were very good. Evening meals, as always, were delicious . We had a very nice bottle of wine and of course the pre-dinner sherry was welcome ' - Mary Hewson - July, 2013
