Rural location spoilt by passing traffic
Posted May 26, 2016
This is a lovely bed and breakfast, the food is really nice, the grounds are lovely and the hosts very pleasant. The bedroom I stayed in was nice but the downsides for me was the noise of the traffic from the almost constant stream of heavy traffic on the road of huge wagons. At some points of the day (from around 5am onwards) the room that I was in actually shook with movement off the road. My other criticism was there was the 'private bathroom' was like a cupboard with a make do kind of style sliding door. It is a really old building which was lovely with low beams and neutral decor but it could do with some upgrading as signs of wear and tear were beginning to show.
The hosts were very nice and the location itself was handy for me with the Scottish Borders near and places like Bamburgh, Kelso, a short drive away. I was there on business as a professional photographer and so was interested in the aesthetics of the place, the setting was particularly nice. Spoilt for me by the noise and heavy movement of the house due to traffic, so much so that I am surprised that no one else has mentioned it..
