We were a group of 6 walkers on a fairly tight schedule to walk Hadrian's Wall from Bowness to Wallsend in 3 days. We chose Brookside Villa because the reviews were good and they do a 'walkers package' - b&b + pack lunch + dinner and they pick up and deliver off the walking route which would allow us to stay for 2 days whilst completing our walk.
Food and accommodation were great and sitting outside enjoying the view and a refreshment from the well stocked honesty bar was one of the great moments of our trip.
Denise looked after us fantastically well. After a hard days slog Denise's no nonsense approach really suited us well. She anticipated our needs well, nothing was too much trouble and even though we were expecting to pay the 'walkers package' rate she gave us a reduction because we hadn't made full use of it.
I'd thoroughly recommend staying here.
