A former convent opposite Alnwick Castle has received a heavenly make-over into a luxurious boutique hotel.
‘A twisty road’ leads to this ‘beautiful’ Georgian farmhouse B&B in ‘a wonderful location’ on an organic livestock farm on the River Coquet.
There’s a ‘jovial, relaxed’ feel at this modern pub-with-rooms.
On the edge of this seaside town, a ‘lovingly converted’ Presbyterian chapel dedicated to Northumberland’s patron saint is run as a 'superb' B&B and occasional music venue by enthusiastic owners and 'great hosts' Jeff and Jill Sutheran.
‘We really rated this friendly little hotel,’ wrote a Guide reader of Robin and Tegan Tait’s B&B and bistro, ‘right on the seafront’ with ‘stunning views’ to the Farne Islands.
Peace and tranquillity reign at this ‘most welcoming’ Georgian house, where well-manicured gardens stretch towards magnificent Northumberland countryside.
A ten-minute walk from the town centre, this pristine B&B in an Edwardian villa has comfortable bedrooms, a light-filled lounge and breakfast room, and off-road parking at the front. For breakfast, a selection of fruit juices, cereals, dried and fresh fruits and yoghurt is followed by cooked to order dishes – maybe a full Northumbrian (dry cured bacon, sausage, black pudding, grilled tomato, mushrooms and a choice of free range eggs). The friendly hosts offer plenty of tips for days out in the area and where to eat nearby.
A small, family-run hotel with views of the coast, castle, church and countryside. Decorated in soft checks, pleasing bedrooms range from those suitable for single guests, a family, and with visitors with dogs. one ground floor suite has a large walk-in shower room, a conservatory seating area and wheelchair access. Dinner, served in the modern restaurant, features homemade comfort food and a selection of dishes from the Specials board. Walks along the dunes and sandy beaches will combat hearty breakfasts.
In a ‘scenically superb area’, this ‘good-value’ hotel stands opposite the green of this village (known for its magnificent castle) on the North Sea coast facing Farne Island. Fronted by potted plants and a coat of arms, it is managed by Graham Young
From £70 per night
