We arrived wet through and with great relief and Owen gave us a great welcome. Obviously boots come off before you enter the house (i would expect the same at my own house) but Owen provided us with newspaper to stuff our drenched boots and they were placed in the boiler room overnight to dry out.
We ate at the B&B, and the food was absolutely excellent, and marvellous value for money. it was so much better than the pub food we had been eating at other places we stayed at during the week, I would certainly agree with a previous reviewer that it was restaurant standard, and a very good restaurant at that,
The shower was hot, the towels were bath sheet sized, not silly little things (only the second place along our route which had lovely big towels). we were very relaxed, and felt clean and well looked after by the time we went for dinner an hour after our arrival.
Bedrooms were clean and nicely decorated, wonderful views.
Breakfast was great, Owen offered alternatives , as this was our last night having walked west to east, he commented that we must be fed up with 'the full English breakfast' a perceptive comment.
Best of all Owen had arranged for sunshine the following morning (hahaha, not really, but it was a beautiful day)
Owen and Helen saw us on our way the next day and even took photos for us
thank you Owen and Helen.

Just one suggestion , a sign on the B6138 showing where the B&B is, we almost walked past the junction onwards to Heddon.
