Stayed in Otterburn for one night to attend a wedding. Harry and Jen were wonderful hosts, the accommodation first rate and breakfast was delicious.

Harry's lifts to and from the wedding venue for a small fee were much appreciated, especially in an area where it is difficult to get taxis.

Would more than happily stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone attending a wedding in the area.

We have stayed here 3 times now and we've loved every stay, Harry and Jen are absolutely brilliant hosts, they couldn't do enough for us and their house is stunning as are the views. Our daughter loved running about with the chickens and was given the chance to collect their eggs in the morning. The meals we had were all home made and were delicious. All in all we will come back many times in the future.

This was one of our favorite stays, down to The Dolphin and its amazing owners Jen and Harry.
We took Harry up on his taxi service from the airport, as well as evening meals (Harry's food was so yummy and he offered to cater for our tastes, rather than what he wanted to cook which was so lovely and made you feel valued as a guest!)
There was so many options for breakfast, including cooked, fruit and cereal which you eat in the dining room which is situated with the most amazing views over the hills (and the chickens in the garden who supply the fresh eggs). Nothing is too much for Jen and Harry, with recommendations for places to visit, the taxi service and simply spending time with their guests getting to know them.
Our room was spacious with the most comfy bed and the little touches made it even better (the sweet jar, toiletries, sky TV, tea and coffee facilities).
This stay didn't feel like a B&B, Jen and Harry welcomed us into their home and it felt more like a stay with family!
I cant stress enough how lovely they are as well as their home, and as all the other reviews have said this is clearly the best location for stays within this areas!
Thank you for an amazing stay,

Room Tip: all rooms are large and spacious

My partner and I travelled up to Otterburn for a wedding. Unfortunately we were only staying for one night :(

The house was immaculate and our bedroom was so lovely and smelt so fresh and clean. The bed was really comfortable. We were disappointed we couldn't have just stayed in there all evening and relaxed munching on the goodies and making use of the sky TV, hehe!

The view from our room was of the lush Northumberland countryside. There were chickens roaming freely in the garden. What I wonderful life they lead, lucky chickens!

Breakfast was fab. Just what we needed after a night of dancing and drinking. Thank you.

We were made to feel very welcome and we were so well looked after. We wanted for nothing. Harry even drove us to the wedding venue.

We had such a lovely visit. So friendly. I love little Barney the dog. He made the stay even better.xx

Jen & Harry make your stay at the Dolphins very special, and nothing is too much trouble. Their guest house is decorated to a high standard and lots of little touches make it very special. A warm a friendly place to stay. Wonderful experience. Fred,Sara, and Lexi (who loved the complimentary chocolate in the bedroom-yum).

Just take a look at the rest of the reviews already left and it pretty much sums up our delightful experience too. We arrived on the Saturday afternoon to be greeted by Harry and Jen into their home/b&b. From the word go they were incredibly courteous and had everything spot on. We were shown to our room with a beautiful view out on to the countryside. We were tight for time and so were soon given a lift to the local wedding venue and arranged a time to be collected. (Incredible service). When we later got collected and returned to our room they had closed all the windows for us. Shut the curtains and pulled the bed covers down. A small touch but so cosy and welcoming. Before we knew it, after a lovely sleep we could smell the breakfast cooking. A full English soon devoured along with a great choice of cereals and fresh fruit. Set us up nicely for the return journey. After a good chat with the fabulous hosts we said our farewells and left with good memories of our friends wedding and more unusually the accommodation.

If ever I am back this way I shall definitely be making a return visit. Keep up the good work.

We arrived in otterburn after a long drive, for a wedding in otterburn and we received such a friendly welcome from Jen and Harry! Jen made us a pot of tea and offered us sandwiches! Room was warm and clean and full of goodies! All furniture is great quality.

Breakfast was very very good, and had such a lovely chat with our hosts over breakfast. Felt like we had known them for ages!

Harry gave us a lift to the wedding and offered to collect us. They are so accommodating and friendly.

Definitely will be back and next time we will bring our daughter for a long weekend (the b&b is completely child friendly with changing area, etc).

Would recommend this place to anyone!
