    Calm and relaxing

    Quirky, unusual but a lovely calm place to stay. Reasonably easy access to fabulous coastal walks and views

    We stayed with Jude and Dave for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. The house is lovely and in a great location for beaches and coastal walks and just a short trip to other attractions like Alnwick, Alnmouth and Bamburgh. Will be staying again.

    Very welcoming hosts. Tastefully ‘period’ bedroom we stayed in extremely spacious with en-suite of similar dimensions. The cooked to order breakfast was of a very high standard.

    Great place to stay

    We had a lovely stay at the Old Rectory. Lovely and quiet in the house and surrounding area. Breakfast was a highlight - made to order and excellent service. Lovely hosts. Great location for getting easily to places near the coast including the 3 golf courses we visited. Also short walk to the beach.

    We liked the large bedroom and kingsize bed and dog friendly. Disliked private bathroom was some distance away and had steps leading to it from the bedroom and was not pre-warned of this fact. Found that the waitress at meal times wore BLACK linen type gloves which we thought was off putting. Bathroom sink water three mornings out of four was cold from the hot tap. The shower was electric so was not affected.
