My husband and I were thrilled that our host Mavis responded very quickly to our last minute request to stay at her home! She and her husband gave us wonderful directions as my GPS wasn't showing their address. They warmly greeted us outside their home and Mavis showed us around. It was exactly as the photos showed with so much charm and comfort. I felt like I was staying with family. Mavis gave us some very good dining suggestions in town just a 10 minute walk away.
The bed was incredibly comfortable and we had a pot of tea in our room before bedtime. Breakfast was fabulous! Complete English breakfast with beans, bacon, ham, eggs, fried mushrooms, toast, fruit and cereal. Let me not forget juice and coffee. Mavis is an absolute delight and I would highly recommend staying at her home! The town of Hexham is absolutely worth exploring with so much fabulous history. You must visit the cathedral in the charming town filled with shops and an outdoor market that takes you back in time! Loved our stay here!!! It's too bad we only had one day here before our departure.
