The Bay Horse Country Inn
After saying out goodbyes we left the lighthouse and started our journey South. The car’s sat-nav re-directed us to avoid traffic jams on the A1 and we came to Rainton from the West. We stopped an bought free-range eggs from one of the houses as we drove through the village to the Inn. Our welcome was as friendly as before even considering our mistake of taking the room keys away with us on our earlier stay.
We sat outside again enjoying the sun and having a beer and a chat with the publican, Chris. The bar was packed with locals and guests and we learned that the all the rooms were full. Our evening meal was in the restaurant and we passed the evening chatting to a couple from Iceland who now lived in South London.
After a good night’s sleep (no trucks or vans passing below our windows unlike Bamburgh!) we had another huge breakfast before we set off for our drive home.
Without any doubt this is one of the best places that we have eaten or stayed at.
Without any doubt this is one of the best places that we have eaten or stayed at as the the bed was comfortable, dinner and breakfast were excellent and everyone was so welcoming. Fast wi-fi, easy parking lots of choice of beers – what more could you need!
Both our one stays were the same, thank you Chris!
The lamb and steaks were all from local farms, well cooked and presented. Breakfast was fabulous.
Rooms were excellent and the bed was so comfortable that getting up to continue our journey was hard.
We sat in the back of the inn in the sun and had drinks sitting amongst all the flowers.
