Features and Local Attractions


We stayed for two nights Monday through to Wednesday morning in November having stayed at the Cook and Barker last year at approximately the same time. Northumberland is one of our favourite places and having holidayed here with our children we discovered the Cook and Barker on one such holiday and ate in the restaurant on a number of occasions. We have always enjoyed our visits to the Cook and Barker and intend to stay again in the future
