Had a great time in around Alnwick - possibly the friendliest British town we have ever visited, enhanced by a modest but lovely campsite run by one of the best and most full of character landlord/owners we have had the pleasure to meet . (cheers for the bush too Bob) The town and Castle are a 10 to 15 min...

My brother & I both enjoyed our stay here. Cosy room, an excellent & generous cooked breakfast with special sausages in a dinging room with great character. Bob could not have been more welcoming. Great views of the lovely countryside.

Been a while since we visited Bob for Sunday lunch, and it was nice to be back for his home cooking and pleasant company. As usual the food was excellent, choice of the usual roasts and a special mince and dumplings! All hot, delicious and plenty of it. All four of us cleared our plates and then after a respite...

This must be the prettiest camp site we have visited. Well kept and tidy and with lovely ducks! However only a cold tap in the campsite toilet. Would have expected hot water for 20 pounds a night. Great location. Landlord Bob is a lovely friendly chap but the food was nothing special. Although it was pleasant we would not visit...

Very disappointed with this B&B. Room very shabby, bathroom tiny and not very clean. There was an overpowering smell in the room which was really outputting. Had already paid for two nights and as Bob was such a nice man, didn't feel we could complain at the time. Would not recommend. Sorry Bob.

We stayed for two nights in August (we was booked for three) the room was a dirty and shabby and at £90 a night we expected more. The breakfast was as previously stated huge but extremely greasy and tasteless and if you prefer something more heart friendly then don't build your hopes up as the bananas were black and the...

Stayed for a couple of nights in a double room. The owner, Bob was a real character and amazing host. Nothing was too much trouble for him, he even gave us all a lift into Alnwick in his jeep. The rooms are quite small and facilities limited, however they were situated just above a charming pub serving good beer and...
