The Orchard House is a nice little B&B in Rothbury, a quaint little village in Northumberland, We stayed here one night on our way to visiting Alnwick Castle, and it was a pleasant and quiet little B&B. The bed was comfortable enough although there were a number of stairs to navigate, and the breakfast was nice. The host Audrey was... More

First impressions were good being an attractive stone property on a quiet part of the High Street (don't be put off by other people's comments on this). We were shown to our room on the top floor which is quite a hike if you're less able bodied - wasn't a problem to us. The staff were very pleasant- particularly the... More

What a stunning old building which has been updated to keep it's period features. An extremely high standard of furnishing and very clean throughout. A very friendly welcome with a glass of bucks fizz, what a nice unexpected touch. A very hearty breakfast provided a good start to a day exploring Cragside which is a short car journey away.

Orchard House is right on the High Street with plenty of on street parking available. Our front facing room was large, well equipped (including bathrobes and an umbrella!) and very comfortable. A good breakfast was served to us by the staff in the morning too.

Whilst on a break in Northumberland we stayed over for 2 nights at The Orchard House, for the price we paid it was good value. In saying that, we got an offer price of £60 per night, if we would have paid listed prices it would have been expensive for the service. Accommodation and breakfast were both fine for the... More
