My husband and I recently stayed at Orchard house in Rothbury, a lovely little village in Northumberland.
I was a little perturbed on arrival because the front of the house appears very austere and bland.
No flowers or plants or welcome sign just a small name above the door ,
We weren't by a lovely lady who brought us refreshing towels and a Buck's Fizz a very welcoming touch indeed!
We were shown to our room which was a suite , lovely big sitting room with double sofas chairs ,plasma screen tv , breakfast table . Our bedroom was well equipped and the bed had lovely Egyptian cotton linens, my only criticism would be to say please replace the black chest of drawers ! They are difficult to open and close and are noisy .
We had a beautiful bathroom with a free standing bath roomy enough for 2 people, 2 washbasins and a fantastic walk in power shower.
Breakfast in the morning had many choices , I had inked salmon and scrambled eggs on soft brioch , lovely !
This house is ideally situated for touring or walking around the Northumberland area and is close to Alnwick castle , Cragside and Wallington House , there are many places to eat in the area within walking distance.
A very pleasant stay over 2 days and a great location .
