“Superb hosts”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We stayed here with friends with the plan of walking some of Hadrian's wall. Bush Nook B&B was in an excellent location to do just that. It was so tranquil with outstanding views. What made it though were our hosts Malcolm and Jenny. They couldn't do enough for us, but at the same time were not intrusive. They were knowledgeable about the area and as other guests have already pointed out, were willing to make that extra effort to make our stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. The breakfasts were varied, beautifully cooked and plentiful and the use of the Hot Tub after our long walks proved to be a very good way to get rid of any aches and pains! This is our third visit to the Northumberland/Cumbria area and it definitely won't be our last and we certainly hope to stay at Bush Nook again.

Very nice place, friendly and helpful host and beautiful room. The scenery from the winter garden is worth the stay. Highly recommendable place. Close to the wall and in a peaceful area. Great breakfast.

I stayed at Bush Nook while walking part of the Hadrian's Wall path. Malcolm and Jenny could not have been more welcoming and helpful - providing lifts to and from a local pub, and to the visitor centre in the morning to pick up the AD122 bus.
Bush Nook itself is a comfortable, well-equipped B&B, in a really beautiful and peaceful setting. All this and an amazing cooked breakfast as well!

You really get the impression that you are staying in a friends house, relaxed and informal! We had a very good evening meal on our first night. Rooms were comfortable and warm. The rural location make it an ideal get away break.

We stayed at the Bush Nook while cycling the Hadrian's Cycleway recently and we couldn't have asked for more! Would totally recommend this B&B to anyone! Jenny even gave us a lift to the local pub and back for some food after a hard day's cycling! Breakfast was delicious as we sat in the conservatory looking out at a beautiful view of rolling hills and lambs. You couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts than Jenny and Malcolm. It is a hidden treasure of a place and really made our trip - thank you!

My partner and I stayed here with our baby daughter. The B&B is in a fabulous location. Eating in the conservatory we looked out over the garden surrounded by fields of sheep. Fantastic breakfast. We had a great dinner here one night too. Our room was very nice, though bathroom was small. Good suggestions for local dining and excursions. Made us feel very welcome.

We just arrived after spending 2 days in Bush Nook. We went there to visit Hadrian's wall, but I must admit that as soon as we arrived, I started wishing it would rain enough so that I could stay in the B&B, reading in the conservatory and looking out through the windows to the beautiful landscapes. Malcolm and Jenny were the best hosts and everything was perfect -the rooms are so well finished, everything was spotless, breakfast was delicious. I can't wait to go back!
