The Holly Bush Inn is a perfect country pub. It's traditional but has been carefully updated without loosing any of its charm. The welcome and service was very friendly and our room was nicely styled with comfy bed, powerful shower, TV and free wi-fi. The bar is the local that everyone who doesn't have one dreams about - a local where visitors are welcome, a real ale on tap and an open fire. The pub food was very good too and you can sit in intimate dining areas adjacent to the bar if you wish. There was impromptu singing on the Saturday night and I understand that this is quite common - a great atmosphere.
Its a good location for Kielder Water - about 10 mins drive and walking in the Cheviots of course. We liked charming Rothbury about 30 minutes drive.More
