It was good to try facilities in the area out of season. Mary and Ian are really good hosts-we stayed in the Ingram Suite and this had additional Christmas decorations. This suite is on the ground floor, very spacious.The bathroom has been improved since we came last time, having had a big shower cubicle installed. Towelling bathrobes and fresh coffee/tea/cakes...

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.

Lovely people, beautiful rooms, excellent food and fabulous service. What more could you want.!! Such a treat to be welcome to stay in all day every day if you so wished in a B & B.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. There is so much to see and do in North Northumberland, even on a (not too often) wet day, that very few guests have the change to get the games out - but they're there just in case.

This was the latest of several stays Ive had at the Old Manse Chatton. Following a friendly welcome I found my room to be immaculate and very well appointed, all with a high level of cleanliness. I enjoyed a very good nights sleep in a most comfortable bed covered in quality linen. Views from the east side of Old Manse...

Thanks for the suggestion of sprinkling golf leaf on the cereals - we have given the idea due consideration, but think it may interfere with some guest's fillings.

We were looking for somewhere to stay to explore Northumbria, and found an absolute diamond of a B&B in The Old Manse. Ian and Mary are fabulous hosts, offering great advice on where to visit in the local area, along with superb breakfast, and tasty treats.

Thanks for taking time to add your kind words. The Harthope Room is ideal for looking out from the double aspect windows across to the hills in the autumn sun, but safe from the autumn wind. Hope to see you back one day as four days is nor enough to explore Northumberland properly.

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome. Ian & Mary are great hosts -- kind, considerate & up for a laugh, but never fussing over you.

Great b & b, great owners, great place to stay, highly recommended.....The reason for our stay was we were attending a wedding at Chillingham castle, and instead of having to drive to the castle, Mary offered to get Ian to take us there which was much appreciated.

A warm welcome awaits travellers at The Old Manse where Ian and Mary Catchpole run a first-class establishment.

Thanks for your review. I feel as I should add that, if folks wish to leave the breakfast table hungry they are welcome to do so, but that is a personal choice and not our intention (and why you want to with all this local produce available).
