We were served tea and muffins on arrival by our friendly and charming hosts, who are on hand with help and advice at all times, but happy to give you privacy also. We stayed in the St Aidan suite which was very spacious and well-appointed with an excellent bathroom and very comfortable, large bed. Attention to detail was beyond anything...

We stayed here again to visit family after our first stay two years ago .... Everything exactly the same (thank goodness). A beautiful suite, clean, spacious, quiet with everything we could possibly need. Richard and Christine very welcoming and delicious breakfasts ... just as we remembered. Luckily we now know that our family will be in the area for three...

This is probably the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Location is not to far out of Alnwick. In a lovely quiet location. The rooms (we stayed in the St Cuthbert room) spotlessly clean decorated to a very high standard. Good size shower everything supplied. Nice to have full size toiletries of decent quality. Christine cooked breakfasts...

Thanks for taking time out to review us. Other people have also told us we're the best B&B they have stayed in, so it must be true! But seriously, thank you for the compliment. We'll try to live up to it when you return. C & R

We stayed here for just one night while walking St Oswald's Way. The path goes up the coast so staying in Longhoughton entails a slight detour, but it was well worth the walk to stay somewhere so nice. A genuine welcome, a lovely bedroom, the use of the dining room in the evening to eat the salads and fruit that...

Second time of visiting all be it 9 years apart but even after all this time the comfort and service was excellent. Breakfasts to die for great selection from full English to kippers although I stuck to the full English lovely spread of fresh fruit always arranged as that of an artist. Nothing I repeat nothing is to much trouble...

Its always a delight to welcome old friends back again - but don't leave it so long between visits next time. And of course the fruit artiste always welcomes a mention in despatches. See you again - soon ! R & C

Our hosts, Christine and Richard could not be more helpful. The rooms were fitted out to the highest standard and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely return when we are in the area.. Conveniently located for Alnwick, Farne Islands,Lindesfarne and many local golf courses (we did not play this time). .

That's very kind of you, not just for placing a review, but also for being guests we'd be delighted to welcome back. We'd like to think that we provide more than just a lumpy bed and cheap cornflakes in the morning. And for your next visit, we can provide a list of golf courses locally, for we have plenty, Oh,...

We stayed at Number One Springfield for 5 nights in May, in the St Aidan suite. The room was superb and the bathroom outstanding ! Christine's attention to detail is remarkable. All toiletries are provided and are of good quality and size. The bedroom is very large and very comfortable, with free wi-fi, TV, tea & coffee making facilities, etc......

Second visit to No. 1, this time with friends so we had the place to ourselves as we occupied both of the available rooms. As previously the accommodation, food and welcome could not be faulted. We will be regular visitors here when we're in this part of the world.

This was my first experience of using a B&B overseas, and I couldn't have asked for a better one. The email communication had been responsive and clear. Chris and Richard were the perfect hosts, and the room was well presented. Richard was extremely helpful with giving me information for the following days travels and sightseeing, and the breakfast they put...

We felt a bit anxious when we found that we were your first B&B experience. Anxious to present bed & Breakfasts in a good light, that is. So it's good to hear that we didn't disappoint you. As for the keys - well, we are supposed to check with guests when they leave, so its really a black mark against...

Our recent stay at Number One was excellent in all respects. We made a very late booking and were very fortunate to get a 3 night stay.

Thanks for such a glowing report, and we take it as the ultimate accolade that you felt like friends of the family. As we say to folk "We try to provide the sort of stay we'd like to have when we go elsewhere" and we keep being surprised that other places find it hard to do. When you come back...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of our guests said that they couldn't believe all the good reviews, and they were too good to be true. Well, unlike others, they are. We never chase you to add a review here. We just aim to make your stay a pleasurable memory, (and we brag a bit about Northumberand) Number One is cleverly placed between the Heritage coast and the inland attractions of Alnwick, Rothbury, and the Cheviot. We took great care to provide comfortable beds, and we try to give great breakfasts. Our Guest's Comments book says it all. "Made to feel welcome" "Wonderful bed" "Excellent breakfast" ... more   less
