Anyone recommend a nice place to stay for a couple of days in Northumberland, either Berwick, Alnwick, Bamburgh etc?

I was down that way in a small village about a year before covid, I wouldn't recommend the B&B, but was stunned at the lack of cash machines in the area.

Me: We'll just get money when we're down there, you know they're sometimes funny about Scottish notes.

Me when we got there: Can you tell me where the nearest cash machine is please?
Local chap: The closest one is in (some bloody village I've forgotten about) about 14 miles away but if you're quick you'll get cashback in the local (rip off prices) store that shuts in 5 minutes.

The local pub was cash only, no cards accepted.

I've not been back!

Alnwick is a decent place to stay, great bookshop, don’t think much accommodation in Alnmouth but lovely spot if you find somewhere

I've stayed in Alnwick a few times with work and wouldn't really recommend anywhere there. Seem to remember the Swan (was prefixed with either black or white) being not too bad. It has the dining room all set out with artifacts from the titanic sister ship (the Brittanic I think it was called), which is as random as it is a bit creepy.

Well worth a trip to Alnwick for the excellent Italian and Indian restaurants though, totally recommended them.

Just make sure you don't end up in La Palma!
 
God bless every person of the anti Fascists that lost their lives and the International Brigade that fought including the disproportionate number of young Scottish Socialist/Communist volunteers.

As one Hibee in the US has noticed bizarre niches is that bams like me (a veteran Bounce Admin bam) can drag the conversation from Northumberland to Spain and now my North American amigos, including my big pal Colin in Georgia, to Italy. Colin kens the score.
