* Wonderful introduction to Northumbria - despite the hills!

* Pure luxury (especially when you're cycling). What more can I say!

* Beautiful house, very comfortable. Wonderful place to stay.

* Friendly welcome, beautiful room with view to match, TV for Match of the Day and great breakfast. Spot on!

* Brilliant accommodation and breakfast. Hot fire a godsend at the end of a wet day.

* This is an absolutely lovely B&B! My father and I stayed here on our last night if the Coast to Coast bike ride. Our bikes were out away safely and we were welcomed warmly by Mike and Janine! Our room was lovely and the beds were extremely comfortable! I'm the morning we had a wonderful breakfast, including home made jam...

* Greeted with a warm welcome and a cup of coffee after a long day in the saddle was just what the doctor ordered. The B&B is in a great spot for those doing the 3 day C2C bike ride as it leaves a relatively relaxed third day. the rooms were really comfy, the breakfast was superb and the owner even...

*“Spectacular views, fantastic location, lovely hosts”
The cottage was spotless, it was equipped with everything we needed. The views were breathtaking, perfect location for those who like walking. Owners very friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with home made scones, raspberry jam and bread ( the best we've ever had). We were allowed to take 2 dogs with us (even if the advertised allowance is 1). Property was equipped with towels and beds for dogs. Overall impression - everything exceeded our expectations. We are hoping to come back to the cottage some time this year.

*“Week long stay in July 2016”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 weeks ago
We rented the cottage for a week at the end of July. Our party consisted of three adults, two children and a Jack Russell. We had a fabulous time. Mike and Janine made us feel very welcome and the cottage was lovely, clean, cosy but spacious. It was great because we felt that we could ask for any help or advice on where to visit, but our hosts were not intrusive in any way. The cottage had all of the amenities that we could have asked for, a well equipped kitchen, games for the children and interesting books for the adults. The cottage was just a five minute walk away from the pub and cafe in the village. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a peaceful place to stay, with lots to do on the doorstep. We would love to return again.

*“Coast 2 coast bed & breakfast”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 17 July 2016 via mobile
Mike & Janine are perfect host's. On arrival after a long cycle ride we were offered tea and biscuits and shown to our room which was very nice. Comfy bed and good shower. We also had a sitting room to ourselves which was great once the fire was lit and roaring away. Breakfast the next morning was perfect looking out over the hills.

*“B&BB: Bed and Brilliant Breakfast”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 4 July 2016
This has to be one of the best B&Bs in the country. Location - superb. Facilities - superb. Hosts - superb. Distance to pub - superb. Beds - better than superb. And the breakfast, well it lasted us to the coast and back to Newcastle, that is how good it was.

Room Tip: all rooms are superb

* “Definitely worth a second visit.”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 23 May 2016
Stayed overnight during the C2C and it was absolutely fantastic. The most welcoming host's we could have asked for and everything else was just a bonus. The house was lovely, living room area with a fire place, dining area with plenty of room and 3 bedrooms, all of which were beautifully looked after. Our beds even had electric blankets, something I'd never seen in a hotel/B&B before, not that we needed them as the fire let off enough heat to keep the whole building nice and cosy! Breakfast in the morning was fantastic and had everything you could have wished for. Again thanks for the hospitality, amazing people and amazing place.
