We found this inn when we drove to the center of historic New Castle one evening hoping for a place to stay. Terry House is the only B&B left and there was a room available for us. This place is for travellers who want quaint, historic, quirky owner. It is not for travellers who want neat, tidy, amenities, and mod cons. The elderly owner collects stuff, all kinds of stuff, and the house is filled with stuff. It can be overwhelming. Our room was lovely and not full of stuff. We liked the firm mattress and high ceilings. Room 3 faces over the back garden on the second floor, so it was quieter than a street facing room. Breakfast at the large dining room table was delicious, freshly prepared eggs and bacon. We were joined by one other guest. This is the perfect place to stay if you are exploring historic New Castle because you can walk to everything. The waterfront park is beautiful. There are several restaurants for dinner. I recommend Jessops Tavern, a recreation of a colonial tavern, for its beer selection, its menu that commemorates the Dutch, Swedish, and British heritages, and the 10% discount you get when you show your Terry House key.
