Fabulous b&b, can only reiterate what everyone else says. Excellent hosts, comfy rooms with lots of lovely extras. Breakfasts about the best we've had, try the smoked salmon it's delicious. Don't hesitate to book.

Just returned from a 3 day break and this is one of the best B & B's we have ever visited. The owners David & Beverley couldn't do enough for us, the rooms are superb and the breakfast was excellent. We cannot recommend this too highly

Room Tip: All rooms of excellent quality but the Crecy Room has a private balcony which proved pleasant on sun...

Bow House is a great choice for a wonderful holiday experience. We needed accommodation for a couple of weekday nights, convenient for the town centre, and we were certainly lucky here. The location is perfect: right in the centre of town, but quiet and peaceful. The accommodation is of a really high standard, and includes loads of lovely extras, like quite exceptional tea from the local tea shop both for breakfast and in the room, meticulously thought out toiletries and other requisites, and even a torch in the bedside table. The house is beautifully decorated ith features linked to local history. The breakfasts are superb, especially the locally smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. Our hosts really surpassed themselves, even making sure we were able to obtain that fantastic local tea despite the shop being shut when we were in town. This place really made our trip to Northumberland - thank you so much!

Room Tip: We were in the top floor, and the views were really great!

Lovely b&b, stayed in the Agincourt room which was fantastic. King size bed and quality bathroom. Breakfast was superb including the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and the black pudding in the full breakfast is the best I have tasted. David and Bev are great hosts who make a real fuss of you and make you feel most welcome.

From the tea and pastries offered on arrival, to the sherry in the room, to the excellent smoked salmon from nearby Seahouses smokery at breakfast, our recent 3 night stay at Bow House was just perfect. Bev and David went out of their way to making us feel comfortable; nothing seemed too much effort and they were so helpful with supplying parking permits for all Northumberland car parks. The furnishings in the bedroom were of the highest specifications and the cleanliness and toiletries provided all added to a memorable stay. If only they could sort out the ever chiming clock at the church over the road!!

Room Tip: If you like to sleep with the windows open, then ask for a room not at the side opposite the church...
