We have just enjoyed a weekend away in Northumberland staying at The Old School House, Tilmouth, Cornhill-on-Tweed. We arrived late afternoon after a long journey to Northumberland and were greeted by Judith who showed us to the beautiful ‘Tillmouth Suite’.

Complete with its own private stairs and bathroom, the Suite is tastefully furnished to a high standard with king-size bed, goose-down quilt, beautifully soft bed linen, fluffy towels and comfortable chairs.

It is equipped with hospitality tray and home baking, fridge, TV/DVD/radio/CD and a mini library. We were then told to pop downstairs for a lovely home made cream tea.

The friends we went with had been before so our days were planned ahead and extremely busy. We visited Holy Island and Lindisfarne Castle, and also Bamburgh Castle. We had more tea and cakes in the Bamburgh Castle Tea Shop and had a ride on the Heatherslaw Light Railway.

We drove through spectacular scenery and followed the never ending stunning sand beaches to Seahouses. We even popped into Scotland to a pretty village with cobbled streets called Kelco.

The accommodation and hospitality was first class and we will definitely be back again to enjoy some more. There was even a chocolate mint waiting for you on your return from dinner each evening.
