Dave & Lois greeted us with coffee, tea & cookies at the end of a long travel day! We stayed here to be near Hadrian's Wall. They gave us excellent advice on walking in town and on visiting the wall. Dave recommended the Roman Fort & museum and Vindolanda even giving us map & directions. His porridge was the best on our trip. Our very comfortable rooms, beds & showers were all top notch. Free parking just outside the door.

Glad you had a great time Fran, there is just so much to see along this part of Northumberland, we look forward to your possible return visit so that you can get around those sites you couldn't this time. Take care, Dave.

I can genuinely say I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere better. Lois and Dave are fantastic hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bed is comfortable, the shower (the Achilles heel of so many a B&B) is properly good, and the breakfast is outstanding.

If you want a great place to stay in a fantastic location with hosts who know the area well and can recommend the best attractions and pubs, look no further. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Booked after reading other postive reviews, our expectations were not only met but overpassed. David and Louis have a warm, very kind, spotless b&b. The rooms have very recently been refurbished, are meticulous and have a warm feel to them, as does the whole operation.

The breakfast alone is worth every penny, and the keepers are very welcoming and knowledgeable on the area, its history and can help you with every question you might have.

The location just by the river is beautiful, in easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and public transport to the wall and to cities in the area. Please see to it that you get yourself booked here if you plan to stay in the area, and you enjoy a personal, heartfelt touch to your visit.

Thanks so much for a fantastic review. You know that you and your father are welcome back any time and I know you still have lots of Northumberland to explore, so hopefully we'll see you again in the next couple of years. Its been a pleasure getting to know you both. Take care, and good luck for the future. Dave

Lois and David made us feel so welcome in this cosy B and B. The bedroom was warm and the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. They have thought of everything to make your stay a complete pleasure, and we have vowed to return.

booked here for 1 night after attending a wedding at Langley Castle. The welcome we received from Lois and Dave was first class with coffee brought to our room when we first arrived. Room was immaculate and very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and Lois was a perfect host even sorting out bus times for us to return home. Would highly recommend staying here.
