“Warmed and well fed”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Walking Hadrians wall and reached Ironsign at the end of day four. We had a a family room for four and a twin. The place is really a big guesthouse rather than a farm though there are some sheep and cattle. Rooms were large and comfortable and the big bonus is that you can order dinner ahead and it is guaranteed to hit the spot after a long days walking. Decent wine can be got and its a warm and welcoming spot - especially when in a group. Owen does like to be paid in cash though

We felt welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. Our room was lovely, the host and hostess were charming, dinner and breakfast were delicious - fresh strawberries soaked in rum were the dessert the evening that we were there. The evening meal featured vegetables fresh from the garden. Perfect location on Hadrian's Wall Path. (Shaw party 8.13.12)

Scenic location, premises very clean, evening meal well prepared, breakfast good but not much choice.
Proprieter, Mr Little is blunt to point of rudeness and beware, if you stay there, you report any deficiency, damage or breakage immediately to him to make sure you do not get the blame.

We stayed here for 1 night whilst walking Hadrian's Wall.
The room was extremely large with several windows looking out over open farmland. There were chairs and a sofa to sit on and the room had 4 single beds. The bathroom was also spacious with bath and shower over. The shower lacked pressure though.
Breakfast was sufficient.
The only gripe we had was that we had not booked an evening meal but felt somewhat coerced into dining there. the meal was £17.50 for 3 courses and the food was nothing more than mediocre. Be warned that if you are offered wine, you pay extra. This was not made clear.
Overall a comfortable stay.

Started our walk from Wallsend, and made it to Heddon on the Wall just after 18:00, we called ahead to let them know we were still on the way and would reach Ironsign about 19:00.
What a great welcome we got, despite arriving just after 19:00 (they stop serving dinner at 19:00), we were served what can only be described as "one hell of a fantastic meal".
The rooms were very spacious, very clean and just what our feet ordered after 18 miles of walking- very comfortable beds.
As for breakfast, we could not have wished for any more - we were offered everything we could possilbly want.
This has to be one of the best B&B's we have every stopped in.
Thank you

On Hadrian's Wall path this is a very good first stop where you'll find comfortable, clean and spacious rooms and tasty food. The evening meal and breakfast were nicely cooked and generous portion sizes - great for walkers. We were well looked after and were grateful to our hosts who accommodated our unplanned early arrival.
