If you want the blueprint as to how to run the perfect B&B then Shaftoes is as good as it gets. From parking right outside the door, to a hospitable welcome by the owners, Dave and Lois, ( coffee and cake on arrival) to the...More

Wow, thanks! We simply try to make Shaftoes as comfortable for our guests as we would want our stay in a Bed and Breakfast to be. We're so pleased you found it ideal for yourselves. Hope the golf went well. Take care, Dave and Lois.

Spotlessly clean rooms and brilliant breakfast. Probably the best b&b I have ever stayed in. Lois and Dave were amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble and we felt like we were part of the family by the time we left! If you can't make...More

Thanks for an amazing review Catherine. I think you've started a trend with the porridge though - never made so much over the past couple of weeks! Take care. Dave.

I had the pleasure of staying nearly 3 weeks at Shaftoe's with my family and we loved every minute of it. This area of Britain should never be under estimated as Northumberland has so many local, intriguing treasures and we also found it the perfect...More

About
Description
This charming property is located in the heart of Haydon Bridge at the end of the now pedestrianised original crossing over the River South Tyne. Nestled in the heart of the village this accommodation gives ...More 21st century luxury in an idyllic rural setting. It boasts 4 large twin or double rooms, all en-suite. Most have high pressure walk in showers with quality furniture and fittings. There is a lounge/ dining area and separate kitchen and laundry service available. Close to all the local amenities only a stone throw from the Roman Wall and the beautiful Northumberland countryside, with all its tourist attractions. I am very sorry but we do not accept dogs. Less

Hello, Very sorry but I don't have any rooms allocated for dogs - usually the dog people I get have dogs that are left in the car which is parked at the front door.
