“Absolutely recommend this gem of a property”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

A fantastic place to stay, just off the A1, ten minutes south of Alnwick. Gaye was very welcoming and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. The property is immaculately clean, beautifully furnished in a warm and modern style. Big, white, fluffy towels, state of the art shower, a really comfortable bed, and a lovely large room. Gaye and her husband have obviously given a lot of thought to their guests' needs, and the selection of teas, coffee and cake available in the breakfast room throughout our stay was great. Loads of different cereals and juices, a fantastic cooked breakfast, lots of choice, eggs fresh from their own hens. There is also a lovely guest lounge, so great to socialise in if you're travelling with other people. We absolutely can't fault this place - we'd stayed at the Marriott in York just a couple of nights before and, to be honest, this was better! (sorry Marriott). Although it's situated conveniently just off the A1 and so you can hear road noise outside, it wasn't a problem at all in the property, and all the guest rooms face onto the garden at the back. We loved it and will definitely be back next time we're in the north of England. Can't recommend it highly enough - fantastic, thank you!

Room Tip: All good rooms as all face the back garden and not the main road.

We booked a one night stay on the morning we required accommodation. Photo on website looked ok, but we were stunned by our overnight stay there. Room was spacious, stylish, designed with all the facilities you look for in a stay away. Bathroom was roomy, contemporary and spotlessly clean. Breakfast had so much choice, hot dishes cooked to order and lovely fresh fruit salad, Greek yoghurt, nice breads, fresh coffee..... get the idea? Host Gayle is a lovely lady, so helpful that she even offered to drive us to the local pub a mile away if we wanted to have a drink. Don't be put off by the approach which is shared by a their contracting business, this place is more comfortable than many a costlier hotel.

Room Tip: Next to A1 but noise is not a problem. Also, address is Felton but not actually in Felton village, i...

Stayed here a few times and could not wish for better. Gaye and Laul are great people and feel like friends as soon as you walk in the door. We feel like we are at home but with nothing to do except enjoy being taken care of and being spoilt ! They even let you use their fridge and microwave in the dining room if you want to. It amazes me how Gaye keeps going ! Spotless and wow what a breakfast feast. Thanks again to you both.

My husband and son(aged 3) stayed here for 2nights for a family christening nearby.From the moment we arrived Gaye and Laul made us feel so welcome offering us tea coffee and cake! Ive stayed at several B&Bs over the years and can honestly say i was not expecting the rooms to be of such a high standard(ive stayed in hundreds of hotels all over the world and some 4star hotels dont have the finess like theirs do) My son especially liked the lounge room with pool table! The breakfasts were top class(only wish we couldve of ate more because the selection was awesome! Id most definitely recommend this place and we would love to return in the future.Thanks guys for a wonderfull stay!

We stayed here as part of my birthday celebration and would like to say a big thank you for an excellent night's accommodation. Your home is fantastic, the rooms well laid out with a great deal of thought given and very comfortable. The hospitality shown to us, especially providing the taxi run was second to none. I apologise that we could not do enough justice to the fabulous breakfast laid out for us, I personally would have loved to try some of the cheese together with a slice of the tea loaf, toasted. Nothing was too much. Thank you once again and hope to stay there again soon. Christine

My husband and I stayed for one night in July as we were attending a dinner at Alnwick Castle. On arrival we were greeted by Gay the landlady and shown to our room. The guesthouse has just undergone a full refit and rebuild. The communal areas and bedrooms are well decorated and so clean. Free wifi was available. What made it special for us was the owner friendliness and nothing was too much trouble.

Although the guesthouse is located just off the A1 there is no road noise at all very peaceful.

We had breakfast and I can honestly say that it was lovely and lots of it. We were even given a newspaper.

What makes this place so great are the owners they cater for everything and more. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend to anyone.

One of the best and cleanest B&B's we've stayed at. Mrs. Blewitt was very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.Great breakfast and an excellent dinner at a hotel just down the road made for a perfect stay.Be certainly returning.
