Visitors Book for Bed and Breakfast

First class British hospitality
"The owner (one of) Louise was very personable and accommodating. The room was first class and the breakfast was gratifying! The situation of the farm was very rural yet so close to the city that the best was had of both worlds. Nothing to fault which is a first for me. Many thanks to Louise and Angus." Guests staying in the Garden Room 

Home away from Home "What can I say, will choose to stay over any hotel any time I need to stay in the locality. Excellent standard of cleanliness, beautiful room and facilities. The fresh cooked breakfast was lovely. As a woman travelling on her own, first time I have not felt uncomfortable for being on my own."- Green Room October 2012 Stunning! "I can not talk higher of Riding Farm it was beautiful!I felt very welcome safe and happy. If it was possible I would transport that room to my house. I didn''t want to leave, beyond stunning and welcoming. I would recommend Riding Farm to everyone!" - Garden Room October 2012



Excellent, great place, a hidden gem!
Had a wonderful time! The owners of the farm were friendly and hospitable and we were treated ever so well! A truly unique and wonderful setting in county durham, far enough to be quiet and peaceful but near enough to go into Newcastle Toon! Definitely will come back and highly recommended to anyone else! And breakfast is worth getting up for! All in all a fantastic stay! - latest review from guests staying in the Garden Room

Fabulous attention to detail - latest review of guests staying in Garden Room 06/12/2011
Fabulous attention to detail. The quality of fittings and furnishings was excellent. The proprietors were so welcoming. It was an individual experience and much better than an anonymous hotel but with higher standards. Quiet location yet just a couple of miles from the centre of Gateshead/Newcastle. Brilliant value. latest review of guests staying in Garden Room

Brilliant B&B - 5 out of 5

5 out 5 - Right on the edge of and within easy reach of the centre of Newcastle but deep in the heart of the country. This is a brillant B&B - a real home from home. Review just in today from guests staying in the Garden Room

Garden Room "Conveniently positioned with all you could wish for In an eviable rural position close to Newcastle, it was an excellent base for all we wished to do. The local birds and wildlife added to the country feel, and it was a joy to return in the evening.
Comfortable beds - a good nights rest. An excellent breakfast which set us up for the day. The thoughtfulness of the ownere who was happy to give of her time, advice and help.
