This Bed and Breakfast establishment is located right on Hadrian's Wall path, approximately an hour to hour and a half walk from the path junction for the trail to the Lancaster Priory (and Abbey Bridge B & B). We chose to skip the visit to the Lancaster Priory because of the additional walking distance involved.
We were welcomed upon our arrival at about 7 p.m. that evening by the friendly proprietor, Elizabeth. She invited us to deposit our ruck sacks in our room and relax in her backyard patio (the house is situated on top of a hillside) where we could enjoy the scenic pastoral views with a refreshing beer while waiting for the next trip to the closest pub for dinner. It was a delightfully warm evening and we very much appreciated Elizabeth's and her spouse's warm hospitality, We were driven to the pub, approximately a 10 minute drive from this B & B, where we enjoyed a tasty dinner; the pub proprietor drove us home per prior arrangement with the B & B.
Our room and bed were clean, comfortable and quiet. The shared bathroom was clean, spacious and the shower was absolutely delightful. We enjoyed a good night's sleep and good English style breakfast the next morning. All in all, a delightful stop-over on the Hadrian's Wall path and one that we, as a senior couple, would highly recommend to other walkers.
