“Mattress from AD 122”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Although I agree that the breakfast at this B+B was great in the true English manner, our bed was apparently from emperor Hadrian's times. Spent the most uncomfortable night of our trip here. Also, the house could do with a good scrubbing.
Main photo is of Matfen Hall which is a different establishment.
We feel let down by Tripadvisor contributors !

Very comfortable, country room. Friendly hosts and a good breakfast. Wonderful quiet location. Great brewery right next door for meals (or a drink). It was our second stay here and I would certainly go back.

We booked all the rooms with extras on the floor! Struan and Jenny accommodated all of us which was just great. The huge dining room and fabulous breakfast topped off our weekend perfectly. Hope to return soon Thank you

Matfen High House is about a mile from Robin Hood Inn which is on the Hadrian's wall trail. You walk next to fields and through a woodland, over streams and there stands Matfen House. We received a warm welcome and had a very large and comfortable bedroom with French period furnishings. Jenny provided an excellent breakfast in the morning which rated with the best we had during our walk on Hadrian's wall. A lovely B&B in a beautiful rural setting.

Another one of my stop-off points while walking the Hadrian's Wall Trail... It's a mile off the Trail and the sign for it can be spotted just after the Robin Hood pub if you are heading westwards... you can reach it easily enough on foot by traversing a wood and crossing some fields... Struan and Jenny are great hosts and raconteurs, very helpful and knowledgeable about the Trail [e.g. got a nice tip re. the Roman bridge at Chesters]... They will run you up to the Robin Hood for dinner and collect you afterwards... The room itself was comfy and had a bathroom [a few thousand walkers just punched the air in delight] with lovely hot water... The cooked breakfast was VERY tasty and the home-made bread is highly recommended...

A pleasant enough stay, but the main thing to mention here is the breakfast, a vast amount of cereals to choose from, freshly baked bread and a lovely cooked breakfast. the hosts are keen to help and drove us to and from the robin hood inn for food in the evening.
