Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Just lovely.’ Arrive to a welcoming pot of tea and home-baked cake at Catherine Stewart’s B&B. Fans like the traditional atmosphere, in a ‘beautiful house’ built with the same type of stone that makes up Hadrian’s Wall nearby. There are antiques and old family photographs; the large lounge has a TV and a small library of books to browse. Sun yourself in the spacious garden one day, or play tennis another. Upstairs, fresh flowers brighten the peaceful, ‘very comfortable’ bedrooms. The hostess is on hand with advice about nearby eateries and easily accessible circular walks. ‘Excellent’ communal breakfasts. 7 miles N of Corbridge (ask for directions).

Guest comments

'A perfect bed and breakfast: beautiful house; charming setting; quiet and very comfortable room; excellent breakfast. Not to mention details like water by the bed, Emma Bridgewater tea tray, properly made (inter-lined) curtains, original Victorian bath. But what makes it really special is the welcome and attention to detail provided by the owner, Katie Stewart. Beyond the call of duty were a detailed (and brilliant) direction for a circular walk on nearby Hadrian’s Wall; tea in front of a roaring log fire; a booking made at a nearby restaurant. A wonderful refuge in is an impressively unspoilt part of England. ' - John Hoskins - September, 2012
