We arrived to a warm welcome - room was nicely decorated, clean, large and very comfortable!! The décor throughout Holly Bush Inn was excellent - open fire in the range very cosy, comfortable restaurant area and full of very friendly locals - home from home!!! Oo food was amazing too - garlic and stilton mushrooms and bread and butter pudding to die for - thanks Mary!! Hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: We had the downstairs room as we had a dog with us.

We stayed in Wild Northumbrian Tipis and Yurts so unfortunately did not get to stay in a room at the Hollybush however we ended up going there for dinner twice in our 4 night stay (as it was so good the first time) The staff and locals were all very friendly and welcoming, the prices were reasonable, it looked lovely (roaring fire in the bar area and two lovely dining areas) and best of all the food was incredible! Between the two of us on two nights we tried the steak and ale pie, the bangers and mash and the beef burger and all the meals were great! Just a shame that we didn't leave room for deserts! Anyone staying in the area must try the food here and based on our dining experience we would happily stay here next time!

We stayed for two nights, we stayed in the green room which was clean, comfortable and modern but still holds its old farmhouse style. The bar is so homely with the open fire in the range and the locals so friendly, we felt like we had known them for years. Staff were more than accommodating and couldn't be more helpful ( the boiled eggs were perfect ) The food was excellent, we highly reccomend the lamb shank and steak and ale pie however everything we ate was excellent. So all in all we had a great stay and will be returning. Thank you Holly bush inn and locals. Suzanne and David

A hive of activity, laughter and music in this otherwise tranquil village. An oasis of civilisation amidst the beautiful rolling Northumberland countryside. Good food and selection of ales. Friendly staff and music loving locals - all made for a surreal but pleasant experience,

I have just had an amazing weekend staying at the Hollybush Inn. I travelled to Northumberland with two other couples to take part in the Kielder marathon. We were made to feel very welcome from start to finish. The accommodation was top class, clean and well decorated. We had a fabulous breakfast made by extremely friendly staff. Superb evening meals, in fact, after the marathon I just fancied a sandwich, not on the menu and this was absolutely no problem for the chef. The locals in the bar were so friendly, providing lots of banter on an evening. I would definitely stay again and will recommend to others especially since dogs are allowed and the surrounding area is just so beautiful for outdoor activities. Just be aware that on a weekday, you cannot gain access to check in until 5pm but the Cheviot Hotel down the road in Bellingham provides warmth and hydration if you arrive a little early! Perfect weekend!

Room Tip: If you want an early night, ask for a room that isn't above the pub.
