We arrived wet and weary at 6.30pm to a warm welcome, drying room and an offer to delay dinner until we were ready. The home cooked food was delicious and plentiful, just what was needed and a very welcome selection of loacl ale rounded it off beautifully. Breakfast sets you up for another day on the Wall. Les is lots... More

Ideal location for walking along this stretch of Hadrian’s Wall – it’s just across the road. We caught the bus down to the Twice Brewed Inn [£3.50 single – about 5 miles] and strolled back along the wall to The Old Repeater, stopping off on the way at the Roman fort visitors’ centre at Housesteads for a cuppa. The fort... More

It became quickly apparent by the time we got to Houseteads that we were not going to make Hexham by check in time. I rang and cancelled. But where to stay? We recalled hearing a guest at an earlier B&B mention a place a called The Old Repeater Station, and we found the website and booked from a mobile phone... More

Just a few hundred metres off Hadrian's Wall Pat this is a great little place. Landlord Les is a fun character, cheeky sense of humour, made us feel welcome. Six of us had our supper around the table together, walkers from Netherlands, New Zealand and us so plenty of interesting chat. He did loads of vegetables to go with our... More

I can't say too much about this place - perfect location for walkers - the bus even stops right outside, but it's still beautifully isolated with breathtaking views out of every window. The accommodation is cosy with everything you need, Les the host is a mine of information and great company - and an excellent cook, the meals (dinner and... More

The old repeater station is in the middle of nowhere and just in the right place for those walking Hadrian's Wall. Les is a wonderful proprietor with great food and better banter who is always welcoming. An institution and an obligatory part of the wall experience.

We stayed here after a 9 mile walk. Les is a quirky host and is very good company. The B&B is well laid out and maintianed. We enjoyed an excellent dinner of steak pie followed by an excellent breakfast in the morning. Only one other guest at the time - a Dane - who was good company at both meals.... More

Wer den Hadrians Wall entlang wandert, der muss einfach hier in der Old Repeater Station einen Stopp einlegen: dieses Bed&Breakfast ist eine Oase mitten im Nirgendwo am härtesten Abschnitt des Weges. Les ist ein wundervoller Gastgeber, der uns mit einem wundervollen Dinner überrascht und den Aufenthalt durch seine fröhliche, aufgeschlossene und aufmerksame Art hervorragend gestaltet hat. Die Unterkunft selbst ist... More

The Old Repeater station is wonderfully situated for touring Hadrian's Wall and in beautiful countryside. Les was a wonderful host, friendly, welcoming and very helpful. I would recommend it to anyone and if we visit the area again we would definitely stay there again. Thank you Les.
