TRIP ADVISOR WINNER
2013 CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE
The Black Bull Inn lies at the western end of the agricutural village of Lowick, which has been awarded a gold rating ' Lowick in bloom'. Originally built and used as a farmhouse from the early 18th century, the Inn has offered hospitality to travellers, as well as the local farmers and shepherds, for some three hundred years. It retains its 'old world' charm and exudes atmosphere from times past. We have been determined not to loose that charism with tasteless modernisation.
Nestling between the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and the Cheviot hills, the Inn provides a superb location for visiting the Northumbrian coast, Lindisfarne, the Scottish borders and the Cheviots.
Within easy travelling distance is Bamburgh, the ancient capital of Northumbria and Seahouses, a coastal village from where you may take trips to visit the birds and seal colonies of the Farne islands. The ancient border town of Berwick with its medieval ramparts is a short drive away and offers all main services.
Travel in any northerly direction from the Inn and within a short while you will be into Scotland. Edinburgh is just over an hours' journey to the north and Newcastle the same distance to the south.
N.B. The Inn is closed between 2.30pm and 5.30pm daily.
