Having looked at reviews prior to our visit, I already had high expectations, however Mary and John not only met them but exceeded them in bucketloads. What a lovely couple and accommodation with absolutely nothing too much trouble. From information on where to visit and advice on eating establishments to the welcome every time we returned to the house was...

Thank you for your kind words - we only do what we'd expect from other places - but are glad that it is appreciated.

We stayed at the Old Manse for four nights and, from the outset, Mary and Ian Catchpole did everything possible to provide a unique, friendly, cosy and thoroughly memorable stay. The house itself is beautifully appointed and full of history. Our room was extremely comfortable with extra touches that made us feel so welcome. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and...

Just back from a fabulous 2 night stay with Ian & Mary. This was our first visit to the area and our hosts gave us lots of excellent tips on places to go and opening hours. The house and its location are really peaceful. It's a perfect base for visiting so many lovely places, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Chillingham, Lindisfarne. The rooms...

Thanks for your review. Good luck with the baked bean recipe - it's even better when made with bacon bits, but we keep it simple so that it our vegetarian, vegan and gluton free guests can enjoy them too.

My family and I booked three rooms at The Old Manse Chatton for a wedding near by. Ian and Mary were very accommodating allowing us to check in very early so we could get ready. The rooms were spotless and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was made up of local and homemade produce and was THE BEST...

Sorry we couldn't service the rooms properly before your (early) arrival but the previous guests were enjoying the breakfast ambience so much they did not leave until half an hour before you arrived. Glad everything was spotless by the time you came back from the wedding.

My husband were fortunate enough to recently stay at The Old Manse whilst visiting Chillingham Castle. It was spot on! We cannot recommend this establishment enough, from start to finish Ian and Mary were welcoming, friendly and attentive, treated us to tea and home made scones when we arrived, shared their local knowledge with us and provided us with an...

Getting a good night's sleep after going on the Chillingham Castle Ghost Tour is high praise indeed for our comfy beds - the ones that don't go bump in the night. Glad you enjoyed breakfast too. We look forward to seeing you both again.

We stayed just one night and it was fabulous. Our hosts have gone to a great deal of trouble to ensure that you feel absolutely pampered with the finest quality experience. Very comfortable bed, amazing breakfast. Just be sure to note that they don't take credit or debit cards!

The earlier excellent reviews sum up the Old Manse perfectly. From arriving and Ian coming out to take our luggage and Mary providing fresh coffee and scones, this place exceeded all expectations. The room was terrific with views to two sides and had an exceelent bathroom. Breakfast on both days was equally as impressive - even Ian's homemade baked beans!...

You're too kind to suggest the weather was average - that weekend was unusually diabolical (we normally have much better weather than people give us credit for living so far north). Glad it didn't dampen your spirits and you had a good weekend.

Lovely to see you both again. I'm afraid the Victorians didn't give WiFi reception much of a thought when the Ingram Suite was originally built as a stable block in 1874.

Perfect service and very nice owners. Very good rooms with fantastic view. The breakfast was excellant, especially the "floddies". Only a short way to Alnwick. The wild cows close to Chillingham castle are only a few miles away.

Glad you agree that we are perfectly located twixt the sea, the hills and the towns. The Chillingham Wild Cattle are always a worth a visit although, being totally wild, you need a guide to find them.
