This working farm just off Hadrian's Wall Path at Boustead Hill offers an elegant accommodation in an ancestral farmhouse. The owner, Julie, welcomed us upon our late arrival and rescued us with an unexpected light dinner, which we very much appreciated after a long day of walking. The bedroom we occupied had matching wall coverings, upholstery and drapes. The beds were firm and had high quality linens. The bathroom was stocked with all of the essential toiletries. The breakfast menu offered the farm's own Cumberland sausage and a complete range of vegetarian options, fresh fruit and a wonderful organic yogurt. The owner was very cheery and made it very easy to get to know her and her life's work. The combination of the owner's personality, the setting and the attention to comfort made this a superior experience.
