An elegant and very welcoming luxury B&B in a gorgeous Northumberland location
It would be hard to imagine anywhere more peaceful than this gorgeous three-bedroom B&B, tucked away in the tiny village of Chillingham in north Northumberland, not far from the coast at Bamburgh Castle. Close to the long-distance St Cuthberts Way, amid glorious countryside, it's a tempting stop-off for walkers looking for a bit of comfort, but really anyone would appreciate its to-the-manor-born elegance and the warm attentions of owners Ed and Mhairi Seymour, who are keen to make every guest's stay as special as possible.

First the rooms, which are on the first floor of this handsome and rather quirky late-18th-century property – each extremely spacious and beautifully furnished, with a homeliness and attention to detail that would be impressive in a five-star hotel, let alone a relatively remote Northumberland B&B. All the rooms are light and welcoming, with views over the garden, and provided with Smart TVs, Roberts radios, good wifi and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Two have super-king-size beds (the third has a regular king-size)  with colourful and stylish bespoke headboards, while two of the bathrooms have separate showers as well as lovely deep baths (another just has a deep bath with hand held shower). All come with robes and White Company toiletries.

Among the public spaces, there is a cosy 'Morning Room' with a wood-burning stove, full of books for lazy days, a relaxed drawing room and a dining room where they serve breakfast on demand between 8am and 10.30am (especially late-risers can opt for brunch instead, which is served until midday). Breakfasts are delicious and encompass everything from a sumptuous 'Full Northumbrian' to pancakes, smashed avocados on sourdough toast and much more, most of it made with local ingredients. Mhairi and Ed will provide dinner too if you book all the property's three rooms.

This isn't Ed and Mhairi's first hospitality business, either in the UK and abroad, and not only do they really know what they're doing, they are also huge advocates of the local area and happy to help you seek out the best places to see and things to do. They have dogs so unfortunately you can't bring your own, but if you are missing your own hound you are welcome to take one of theirs for a walk; and there are lots of walks to choose from nearby. The village itself is home to its own castle (bang opposite the B&B) where you'll find the famous herd of wild Chillingham cattle. If you want to explore further, then it's worth knowing that you are only a few miles from the magnificent Northumberland coast at Bamburgh Castle; you can also be in historic Alnwick in just 20 minutes and the magical Farne Islands and Holy Island of Lindisfarne are easily reached too. All in all, if you're looking for somewhere comfortable and elegant to stay in a beautiful part of Northumberland, it would be hard to find a better or more welcoming place.

The best B&B we have stayed in (and are ever likely to)

This must have been our third or fourth visit over the last couple of years (we’re losing count). As an indicator of how fantastic a place it is, the first thing we do when we get back home is to book again – this time being no exception. For anyone who is yet to visit – this is not a typical B&B. Firstly, the setting – quiet, idyllic and a perfect base for visiting both inland and coastal attractions – whether its walking in the Cheviots, visiting castles (Chillingham Castle is literally on the doorstep, but also Alnwick a short drive away, as is Bamburgh) or a lazy day at the beach. Hospitality from Mhairi and Ed is warm and genuine, the breakfast is out of this world – so many options and just so damn good! One of the coolest things is that guests have the use of the downstairs; no ‘confinement to quarters’ here – and nothing nicer than settling down next to the fire in one of the sitting rooms with a glass of wine at the end of the day. I can’t think of many places where we feel as relaxed. For us, Chillingham is a second home. What Mhairi and Ed have created at Chillingham Manor is yet another reason for us to make the trip.
