As a night's stay on part of a Hadrian's Wall walk this place was so good I organised to come back the next night! Throughout the house were collections of fascinating objects and wall hangings. There was excellent attention to detail in my delightfully coordinated room (Livia's Lair). The bath was huge, the hot water never-ending with luxurious bubble bath to soak away the aches and pains of a weary walker's bod; a bathroom cabinet full of complimentary toiletries if you had forgotten anything of your own, and such a fantastic choice of teas, coffees, and hot chocolate drinks complete with biscuits and chocolate that I thought I'd landed in heaven! Both Elaine and Ian were really welcoming, friendly and a fount of knowledge about the local area. Homemade pastries and tea were served by the fire in the late afternoon. I couldn't have asked for more.
