Early May saw 8 of us staying at the Holly Bush Inn for a weekend. We were having our first "Drive Out" this year with our cars. Not knowing the area, I did rely on Tripadvisor for choosing this Inn. We were not disappointed, what a find. The Inn is situated in the heart of Northumberland, great place for walkers, cyclist and lazy motorist like our group. Keider lake and forest were just a couple of miles away and easy access to Hadrian's Wall. However, the best part of the weekend was staying at the Holly Bush. It is an English pub with rooms. The place has so much character and atmosphere. Staff and owner were lovely people, and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were on the small side, but hey this place is hundreds of years old, and they did not make them large in those days. People were smaller anyway, but the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and beds were very comfortable. Food was more than the normal pub grub, well presented and well cooked.
If you like your beer, you'll love this place too. The Holly Bush will be visited again, hopefully, we can still get a reservation.
