Spent three self indulgent days in coldest February with friends on the North East coast with West Longridge Manor as our base. Fantastic attention to detail in the place - we cooked in the very well equipped kitchen and didn't need any of the extra utensils etc that we had packed just in case.
It was hard to choose the best bedroom when we arrived ( always that thing of getting there first and there being a 'best room') We were welcomed with the scent of freshly baked scones and roaring fires and were thoroughly entertained by Robert and his stories of the farm and his advice on where we should spend our time. The place was so cosy and welcoming it was hard to drag outselves out at all.
We had a guided geological tour of Bamburgh beach, shopped for antiques, gifts and food to take home in Berwick itself ( don't remember the name but found a fantastic tiny coffee shop with the best possible cakes and coffee AND unusual antiques run by an American couple in a tiny backstreet) and made the trip to a huge antiques barn (leaflet in the house). There are DVD's and books a plenty on the shelves at the Manor but I would advise taking your own - although to be fair we were so busy looking at the view from the upstairs lounge that we didn't really watch any tv or read anything. Would love to go back when the artist in residence scheme is open in summer at the Berwick Barracks and would make sure to take in a show at the Brewery Arts Centre next time.
An exceptional place to stay and highly recommended - three days was just not enough time.
