Abbey Bridge is a large house and converted smithy on the road from Brampton to Lanercost. It was very easy to find, even with my brain being in total meltdown from a 9 hour and 350 mile drive. Tim, the proprietor carried all my bags in for me, which was very nice of him.
We stayed in Lyne, a twin bedded room just beyond the Guest Lounge, the room was adequate in size, and spotlessly clean. I have to sleep more or less upright, and Tim was happy to provide another two pillows for me, and a second duvet for my daughter, who wanted a double duvet. The shower room was also spotless, high quality shower gel, hand gel and body lotion are provided (although we only used the hand gel),
There was a choice of breakfast, which Tim cooked perfectly every morning for both of us, I can recommend the scrambled eggs, boiled eggs and the ranchers eggs - which my daughter had, and since it involved chilli salsa seemed to me to be a bit OTT for breakfast, but she enjoyed it immensely. The coffee arrived in a cute little cafetiere and was very strong.
There is free Wifi, which fed the addiction of both of us for our emails and in my case for the iPlayer - there was a TV in the room, and another in the guest lounge, but neither of us used them - and my only complaint about it was that it cut out at midnight on one of the days, and we couldn't get it back again. The bandwidth was certainly good enough for me to keep up with the Masterchef episodes I'd missed during the week.
The location is excellent, we walked to Lanercost priory which is just down the road, and it seems to be a great starting point for people walking the Hadrians Wall path, there were many other guests doing this. We were there because I was attending a course being run at Roadhead, and my daughter was happy enough to hang around in the room, working on her computer, so we didn't do any walking.
I really couldn't fault this B&B and if doing something similar in the same area, we will be back.
