“A True Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We have just returned from a three night stay at The Haven. It is well named. There is a real air of tranquility and peace here. The breakfasts are absolutely superb, with a huge choice and the muesli is awesome! The beds were very comfortable and there are lovely views over the town. It is in a very convenient position for exploring the area. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely like to return.

lots of nice little touches like tea & cake in the lounge on arrival, great selection of teas, king-size bed. The breakfast options were really special. Fresh local produce that tasted every bit as good as they sounded - the smoked salmon (with scrambled eggs) was the best we'd tasted & the pancakes with fruit & chocolate sauce were scrumptious. close enough to walk into the pretty town for dinner & do a days walk from the place but far enough away that it felt like a real haven. The single rooms looked lovely too.

I was daunted by the steps from the car park until I found the ramp to the side of the building! But that was the only negative in my stay. Everything else was spot on. Perfect location for exploring the area, even a great view from just sitting in the garden. There is a real feel of being away from it all, when you come from Manchester being awoken by birdsong and church bells is a delight. The chickens kindly provide the eggs for the best breakfast menu I have seen. Porridge with local whiskey, crab omellette..Ian was very welcoming and attentive to everyone's needs. Looking forward to a return visit.

Though a bit out of the way, The Haven was relaxing and welcoming. The road in was closed because of flooding, but the trip in was picturesque. Ian offered tea upon arrival and the breakfast was awesome. The views are spectacular and the room was large. Truly a haven....

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights at The Haven in mid July 2012. We were keen to see a lot of the sights in Northumberland and wanted to stay somewhere reasonably central. We chose Rothbury, which turned out to be as central as you can get in Northumberland. It is a lovely, small town that sits on the River Coquet and is the centre of an area known as Coquetdale.

The Haven is set on a hill just to the north of the main street and has a great view overlooking the town and the surrounding countryside. Our bedroom was a large, Superking room which was clean and nicely decorated. It had a superb view of the town, the opposite side of the river valley and the Simonside Hills.

The breakfasts were superb - my wife's particular favourite being the Black Rory porridge, which contained honey and Black Rory whisky. A recipe to die for!! The other choices were equally good, including smoked haddock and poached egg; crab omelette; and smoked salmon and scrambled egg. If you like a full English breakfast, I found The Haven's to be a very filling one that certainly set me up for the day!

The service provided by Ian, the proprietor, was excellent and we particularly appreciated his welcome when he offered us a cup of tea and piece of cake in the lounge. When we left we bought two bars of the delicious homemade chocolate, small examples of which Ian had provided for us in our bedroom on arrival. We would recommend Rothbury and The Haven to anyone who wants to visit this beautiful part of the world.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view south overlooking the town.

Lovely peaceful B&B. Big spacious rooms.
Would like to thank Roz & Ian for being so hospitable and going above and beyond. The breakfast was fantastic - a real English cooked breakfast, even the eggs were fresh from the hens in the back garden!

I even had the chance to try Black Rory, a whisky from Northumberland, which was brilliant. Roz and Ian own the companies 'Coquet Whisky' and 'Coquet Chocolates' so I had the chance to buy some local Northumbrian chocolates and whisky to take back down South with me.

Superb trip - made even better by The Haven and it's stunning views from the bedrooms.
