“St Cuthberts way”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

From the welcome by Bob with tea and warm scones to the wonderful breakfast the following morning cooked up by Bob and Ginny this B&B is unbeatable. A lovely house, convivial hosts,peaceful setting, lots of lovely touches and the biggest breakfast choice I've ever seen in a B&B.To a footsore walker this was as good as it gets. Bob will even book you a table at the local restaurant of choice around here---Milan [also highly recommended].

This was our second visit to Millyard House - our first being in 2012. The B&B offers great service, great value for money and a great breakfast.

The high standards set then have been maintained: the friendly welcome with tea and fresh scones; the hearty breakfast that will fill you up for the day; the advice on local attractions; weather and holy island crossing info.... basically everything you need for a short stay in the area.

The last time we were in Northumberland we used Millyard House as a base to explore the castles (apart from the one that got away, Bob!) and this time we used it as a base to explore Cragside and inner Norhumberland.

We will always return to Northumberland for short breaks and always look to stay at Millyard House as our first choice for B&B accommodation.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms - both with equal facilities and both look onto the garden

From the first moment we arrived, Ginny was so warm and welcoming! Best eggs Benedict I've ever had and Bob cooks an unbeatable full English! It's hospitality at its finest and I couldn't rate Millyard House highly enough! Stunning house, stunning surroundings, stunning B&B, thank you for such a lovely time! Will definitely come back one day!

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms at this B&B but I'm certain you won't be disappointed with either!

We stayed a couple of nights whilst we toured the area, and whilst the room was pleasant and clean, and the hosts were welcoming and friendly, it wasn't 100% ideal.
Unfortunately, as a Coeliac, I have very specific dietary parameters, and always inform wherever we are staying of my condition, just in case they aren't able to cater and if they can, to give them time to organise any GF food, etc.
Sadly, although my husband was able to enjoy a full English, cereals, toast, etc., my breakfast choice was more limited. On the second morning after I mentioned that I couldn't use any of the jams because of the risk of cross contamination. Ginny did put some fresh jam in a separate dish for me,.
I wonder if any other Coeliacs make a booking, whether it might be worth the hosts doing a little research?
Another reviewer mentioned the sherry and snacks in their room. The sherry was a nice touch, but I couldn't touch the snacks - although my husband enjoyed them.
And perhaps an investment in toaster bags would be useful?
On the whole, a pleasant stay - and I appreciated the M & S fruitcake on arrival, and the iced water.

Millyardhouse, Owner at Millyard House, responded to this review, 23 June 2014
The research suggested has of course been carried out as we have had many coeliac guests before. None of the research and none of the previous guests gave asked for a full and parallel replacement of our extensive choice of foods and snacks, and it would not be financially viable to offer it. This guests has given us our worst ever review based on a lack of coeliac friendly biscuits. No such complaint was registered against the Milan Restaurant (reviewed by this guests on this visit to Wooler) who did not offer a coeliac alternative to their breadsticks. The issue of cross contamination of jam is remotely possible. We do not invite the use of knives for dispensing jams, opting for spoons for each jam pot and we would automatically dispose of any jam which showed signs that it had been contaminated. I do understand that some B&B's might simply put jam jars on a table and put up with lumps of butter and crumbs in it, but we do not. Ginny nevertheless supplied marmalade as requested in a separate pot. The guests was offered toast grilled on foil under a grill but refused it.
Scrutiny of previous reviews by coeliacs, vegetarians, vegans and those with other special dietary requirements will reveal that our service and provisioning for them has been of a very high level, but if you are determined to find a problem it's usually possible to do so.
Scores for value, service and rooms were also reduced though Quality in Tourism have only a few days before put the rooms forward for a silver award. No explanation was given for the other reduced scores which would have been helpful if there were genuine problems as we welcome the opportunity to improve all aspects of out operation.
I should also point out that the picture shown as representing Wooler on the reviewers' city profile is not Millyard House but another B&B in the town.

My wife and I stayed at Millyard House for one night after attending a wedding in College Valley. Bob and Ginny were very welcoming and went out of their way to allow us an earlier check in time and the warm scones on arrival were a lovely surprise! The room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely outlook onto the garden. The breakfast was excellent with lots of local produce which was nice to see. Would definitely stay again!

This is an absolutely lovely b.and b.
Bob and Ginny gave us a warm welcome after our ten hour walk on the St. Cuthbert's Way, and seemed to have thought of everything a weary walker could possibly need: running a hot bath for us, tea and home-made scones and jam, booking an evening meal for us, a comfortable, soothing bed, a bowl of fresh lilac on our windowsill, even some sherry in our bedroom, and the next morning, a delicious breakfast, including home-made bread and preserves, and we were even presented with a personalised colour sketch of the route we were walking . We were sorry we had to leave, but hope to be able to stay for longer next time.
Thank you, Bob and Ginny.
