This was one of the best nights stay during our walk of Hadrians Wall. Fantastic great room with a welcome bath after 6 days walking. Very quiet location. Staff very friendly. Breakfast very good with a great choice.

A close call (sorry, Willowford) but this just won a strong race in our opinion. Everything about the accommodation was very good indeed: we had TWO ranges of luxury bath goods, foot lotions etc. Good. extra large fluffy towels. The welcome tea and scones were delicious. The beds were huge and beautifully sheeted and pillowed. The breakfast: wow! The welcome... More

Very friendly welcome at the end of a long walk with tea and cake provided. The room was lovely with views over the gardens behind the property. Helpful local advice was offered on local services for which we were very grateful. Breakfast had a good variety of food on offer but I can vouch for the excellent full English!

Stopped off for a bite after a lovely walk around Campfield Marsh. Despite being 3pm, the lunch platter "Hadrian's Wall Platter" was still available. It was imaginatively combined, beautifully served and spot on fresh. Tea ( both herbal and normal) served in in a china pot and china cups. Just had to succumb to one of the best carrot cakes...

Luxurious guest house with everything you need after cycling the Hadrians Wall Coast to Coast. Staff really friendly, room very comfortable and beautifully set up. This guest house is in a beautiful little village and quiet location. I woke to the September sun shining in the bedroom window.

We stayed here at the start of our Hadrians wall walk last week. Their friendly service started with information on how to get there from Carlisle using the local bus (including the time of the next bus), tea on arrival and a decent breakfast and packed lunch to send us well fuelled for the walk.

This was our last night following a grueling 4 day adventure walking Hadrian's Wall and the welcome, attention and heartfelt sympathy with regards to our aching limbs was above and beyond anything that we were expecting.

Stayed overnight in the main accommodation (not wigwams), prior to tackling Hadrian's Wall. Comfortable, generous breakfast, with friendly and accommodating staff. I didn't sleep well on what I think was a memory foam mattress but I think it was just different to what I'm used to. If you're looking to go to the tea room, check when it's open as... More
