Had a wonderful welcome and stay at this very comfortable Bed & Breakfast ideally placed for our visit to Beamish. Coming from a quiet peaceful rural area we were seeking a comparable place to stay with friendly people, a comfortable nights sleep and good food. This place was certainly all of those things and more. Would certainly recommend it to...

Spent a few days at Low Urpeth Farm B&B: the place is lovely, nicely decorated and clean. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Our room was cosy: a nice bed, pillows maybe a little soft (on par with British standards). Very good breakfast, we had our first honeycomb there. Would we go back to Low Urpeth Farm B&B? Yes!

Welcoming and cheerful. Over engineered bathroom but you have to run around to catch the shower water, but then I'm a fan of being pinned against the wall by a power shower so ignore my gripe. Took ages to work out where the switch was for the bathroom mirror light, but again, I'm a bit thick. Far to many cushions...

From the moment we walked through the door we couldn't have felt more welcomed or more at home. Comfortably furnished - from antique furniture to modern en suite and the most comfy bed. And the breakfasts!! What more could we have asked for. A very big thank you to our hosts, Peter and Hilary.

We stayed for 2 nights. The B&B is extremely well organised with comfortable rooms and all the facilities you would expect (kettle in room, TV, free wi-fi, etc.). Hilary is very friendly, makes an excellent breakfast with homemade bread and jams. It is in the countryside with fine views all around. We used it as a base to visit Beamish...

This is a fantastic place to stay. We were only there one night. We had a cup of tea in the lounge on arrival. Comfy bed and nice bathroom.

I recently had the pleasure of spending 5 nights in Sandra's Room at Low Urpeth Farm. What a delight! Hilary and Peter were very friendly and helpful throughout my entire stay. I cannot praise the breakfasts highly enough; they're selected from a menu each morning and include many local and homemade ingredients. The farm is located just a short drive...
