We stayed for four nights as we had work in Newcastle. I cannot find fault with either the facilities or the welcome we received from Paul and Katherine Shrimpton. The breakfast was superb and the room was a welcome retreat from the day's work in Newcastle.

The room was lovely, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and so helpful. Great breakfast with a good selection of food including freshly baked bread and really fresh eggs. We could see the chickens from our bedroom window. Lovely view having breakfast in the orangery. Loved my Alpaca experience. Informative and so brilliant.

Paul and Catherine are excellent hosts. Wonderful welcome and the double, en suite room was gabled, light and airy with a large comfy bed. Bathroom was roomy and had delightful toiletries. Good wi-fi connection. Wide range on offer for breakfast using fresh, tasty produce. Shared table for breakfast which encouraged socialising with other guests. We would not hesitate to stay...
