DIRECTIONS TO THE SCHOOL HOUSE B&B FROM THE NEWCASTLE AREA:
Turn off the A1 (M) Newcastle By-pass onto the A696, which is sign posted to Jedburgh and Newcastle Airport. Continue for some 29 miles on the A696 past the Airport, through Ponteland, over the moors and through the village of Otterburn to the junction with the A68 from Corbridge. Continue north on the A68 for some 15 miles passing the villages of Rochester and Byrness and the Catcleugh Reservoir to the Scottish Border at Carter Bar (See Map 1 above). Descend the hairpin bends of Carter Bar and continue north on the A68 for some 3 miles when you will see a turn-off to the right sign posted to Edgerston Toffs and a lorry park on the left (See Map 2 above). Continue on the A68 past the Rink Smithy B&B, round a slight left-hand bend and take the next driveway on the left, some 300 yards from the Rink Smithy. The shared driveway is just past a bus-stop sign and is marked by our black and gold sign and a white flag pole at the corner of the stonewalling. Our sign is illuminated at night.
