We cannot but say that this is very good B&B and which is close to visit Alnwick Castle and Gardens.
Though we were a bit early George welcomed us and showed us to our room, which was upstairs (looks like the attic has been converted into rooms). We cannot say anything about the room (room 1) except because of the tilted roof one has to be content with a fixed shower.
Another thing is that although WiFi is advertised, one cannot get connection in Room 1. I would have expected that in this modern age this can easily be solved and save you from having to stay in lounge after a days out instead of relaxed in you room to get internet.
Apart from that room was immaculately clean.
Also, have to thank George for welcoming us with a pot of tea and a very very good piece of carrot cake, which we later learnt that it was made by Jackie. Thanks and Hmmm it was lovely.
Also, i would like to mention the ample choice one has for breakfast with hot meals served in heated plates.
Ample parking is available and would recommend for those who want to visit Alnwick Castle and places in the vicinty like Bamburgh Castle, etc.
