“Spotlessly clean rooms, excellent breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Had a really nice weekend here and although the rooms appear a little dated, they are spotless.
Really nice welcome and a good choice for breakfast.

Good Off road parking
Clean rooms
Ensuite shower
Friendly owner and staff
Good choice of cereals, full cooked breakfast or a mix.
Tip:
If you need cash then either buy something from the village shop and get cash back or pop into Bellingham for a hole in the wall.

The Butterchurn is exactly what I expected. Comfortable, clean and homely. Rooms are big, but fairly basic. Quite a lot of traffic noise if you have a roadside room. Breakfast is first class and the service cheerful and friendly. I'd go again.

Room Tip: Don't go for a roadside room if you want any sleep.

Made to feel really comfortable and at home, staff go out of their way to help you. Really friendly and inviting atmosphere :) beautiful scenery nearby, nice escape from busy built up areas. Not too far for a trip to either Newcastle or Scotland border!

We stayed here for two nights on the 27th September to attend a wedding at Otterburn castle. The room was very comfortable and staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was superb we had the full English both days followed by toast and jam. There was a menu and you could have whatever you wished, the view from the dinning room is beautiful and to top it all we only had to stagger across the road from the castle after the wedding! Perfect :)

Having just spent 4 days in a 4 star hotel I was expecting to be disappointed but the Butterchurn ticked all the boxes for comfort cleanliness and a great breakfast. Lovely view from the bedroom, beautiful bed linen, good shower and free Wifi. Friendly staff and great welcome. Would definitely recommend

We stayed at the Butterchurn for one night during a walking trip round Northumberland. The village is very remote, and there are only two dinner options available nearby (i.e. in walking distance). The B&B is located right next to a busy road, but the guest rooms are located at the back of the house and weren't interrupted by street noise during the night. The room was quite modern, tidy and generally bright and pleasant.
The breakfast was good, though some more vegetarian options would be nice. A great plus point was the host, a delightful person who offered to take us some 4 miles to Elsdon, where we wanted to start our next days trip. Contrary to some other reviews, we had no trouble with the wifi. Would recommend it to anyone who need to stay in the area.

We must have had the worst bed in the place, certainly wasn't comfortable, no internet and a small breakfast of 2 thin slices of bacon 1/2 a tomato and I would be lucky if there was a whole egg in my scrambled egg, not good value. Won't be going back.

Room Tip: Phone them and ask what they have, away from the road
