What an amazing two day break we've just had. Honestly, if we hadn't have needed to be back for work we would have taken advantage of the extra free night for sure!
This was a late booking for us, as we'd had to change our plans at the last minute. Philly was babysitting for her gorgeous granddaughter so had taken no bookings but she happily accommodated us at the eleventh hour. Everything was just perfect; wonderful hospitality without being intrusive, a lovely welcome with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie (my first this year!), a sumptuously comfy room with a lovely bed, great quality bedding, and a spacious bathroom. We knew from the first moment that we had made the right choice! Philly is an absolute gem who couldn't do enough for us. We had choccies, cookies and my favourite "rosemary water" in the room. Breakfast was exceptional with amazing granola, the most amazing scented poached plums with cinnamon and star anise, and then cooked breakfasts on both days - we sampled scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, Craster kippers and locally sourced bacon, sausages.... I could go on!
This was truly the best B&B experience I've had (and we've had some great ones!)
You really can't go wrong by booking this amazing retreat.
Alnwick: only a few minutes drive or £5 in a taxi if you are going out at night and fancy a drink. We visited Hardy's Fishing Tackle Museum, the amazing Barter Books and some good independent shops. We had a decidedly average meal at Lilburns and a lovely casual experience at the Tapas bar. Can't wait for a return trip!
