This Hotel is very clean and situated in a lovely little village we stayed there whilst attending a wedding in Headlam Hall. We found it to be more like Bed & Breakfast than a Hotel but nevertheless it was adequate for our needs. We found the Breakfast times were a little rigid especially after a late night at the Wedding... More

We'd booked in at The Four Alls for B'n B in order to attend a local event. When we arrived to check in at 2.00pm we were told that the bar was closed.

Six of us went for an evening meal. Traditional Country Pub but with the advantage of not having too many tables lumped close together to seat maximum people. I have heard the interior described as 'outdated', I would describe it as 'traditional' and clean with a pleasing atmosphere.. Food is Home Cooked and it is a family affair, no paid... More

We visited the Four Alls on a group cycling weekend, staying for the saturday night. The owners were very accommodating, even offering to dry out all our wet cycling gear. Food was homecooked and just what was needed after a day on the road. Rooms were clean with comfortable beds.
