Peter and Hilary welcomed us in the early evening with a cup of tea and an enjoyable chat. We had so much in common and we learnt so much about the local area. Encountering friendly people along the way really makes a trip and Peter and Hilary did this so easily. Sauntering through the wonderful English countryside was one of... More

We decided to have a few days away to visit some museums and locations we had not been to for a long time. We began with a visit to Beamish Museum. Low Urpeth Farm is minutes away. What a wonderful night, such a comfortable bed, beautiful room and handy en suite (no luxurious toiletries for us though ;-( Peter made... More

I picked this B&B because of the Trip Advisor reviews though I did wonder if they were genuine because they seemed so gushing. Having stayed a night I realise they are genuine. This is what I look for in a place to stay: lovely room, good facilities, nice people, quality breakfast. Would recommend highly to anyone with similar priorities.

A warm welcoming home to return to after a day of touring about. Very comfortable room with fresh linen, large fluffy towels and lovely toiletries. Such a comfortable bed.

Loved the breakfast... More

After a long day's drive, this was a perfect place to arrive. Wonderful location, easy to find, spotless bedroom, and a perfect hostess. The rooms were immaculate, bear in mind this is a very old house, so expect uneven floors and antique furniture, it's all part of the charm! Breakfast is also just what you'd expect, excellent ingredients, fresh local... More

I stayed in the main house and my friends in the self catering annexe. I can't fault Low Urpeth Farm in any way. My bedroom was spotlessly clean, and so was the annexe. We cooked our own dinner in the annexe, which had a fully equipped kitchen. The breakfast in the morning can only be described as excellent. The breakfast... More

The farmhouse at Low Urpeth is on a 500 acre farm, worked by the Johnson family for several centuries. It is beautifully situated; walking from the Ouston Roundabout towards the house, you are reminded of every children’s book you ever read that was set in the English countryside. There is a sitting-room for guests, in which we were welcomed with... More

We wanted a nice self-catering cottage to be near to our Grandparents to spend Christmas time together. My fiance found a self-catering bungalow on Low Urpeth Farm which has B&B in addition to self catering bungalows- and what a find! An absolute treat which far surpassed what we'd imagined.

Having holidayed at Low Urpeth before, in one of the self-catering cottages, we knew exactly where to stay for a short visit to the North East last month. This time, since it was only for a few days, the B&B rather than the self-catering option was more suitable. We weren't disappointed. Hilary and Peter run a lovely, welcoming service -... More
