Enid is one of those very special people who lifts your heart with her generosity of spirit, warmth and humour. Her passions are pictures, cooking and people, and you will be fed exceptionally well too – breakfasts are delicious and include local farm eggs. Choose any of the four large, lovely bedrooms and stay the week; they are awash with old paintings, silk fabrics and crisp linen. Wake refreshed and nip downstairs, past the log fire, to a laden and sociable table, head off afterwards to find 720 acres of organic farmland and a few million more of the Cheviots beyond. Wonderful hosts, a glorious region, a happy house.
