Welcome to Ingram House Bed and Breakfast in the beautiful Breamish Valley in the Heart of Northumberland. Adrian and Jane Levien and their family moved to Ingram House in the Northumberland National Park in 2003. The Cheviot Hills, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Bamburgh Castle and beach, Holy Island are all nearby.

The Church, St Michael and All Angels, is just along the road and well worth a visit. There are services every Sunday through the Summer and alternate Sundays in the Winter. Visitors are always welcome. If you enjoy walking in the hills, then please take time to look at The Innway Classic pub walks throughout the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland. Written by Mark Reid ... "Wainwright with booze" (The Sunday Times).

Further afield you can visit the Gardens at Alnwick Castle (pictured above - top right). The Duchess of Northumberland has put Alnwick on the map by creating these spectacular gardens. Bamburgh Castle (also pictured above) standing on an outcrop of granite on the coast is one of the most beautiful places to visit. Holy Island, or Lindisfarne, is where Christianity came to these shores. The Farne Islands can be visited from Seahouses if you do not mind bobbing over the North Sea - well worth a visit to see the puffins and seals.

Not far from us is an easily climbed hill, Ros Castle, from which, on a clear day, you can see seven of the castles near us - Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Alnwick, Norham, Chillingham (where you can find the only herd of wild cattle in Britain), Lindisfarne and Warkworth. For the more sporting visitor there are many golf courses nearby. Clay pigeon shooting can, given notice, be arranged locally as can trout fishing on a local lake.
