Very well placed stopping point for the Hadrians Wall walk. Les is a great host, very welcoming and a very dry sense of humour. We had a superb lamb shank for our evening meal washed down with some very nice beer. Afterwards we all sat down and sang along to the Last Night of the Proms - a memorable stay.

Les was kind enough to wait up for our very late arrival from Bristol, courtesy of a delayed flight & a very tricky drive through a really thick Northumberland fog. His breakfasts were certainly worth getting up for, as was the walking & Les's local knowledge was both entertaining & helpful for planning the day. Don't be put off by... More

Les is a great host and his establishment is great value as well as being in an excellent location for visiting Hadrian's Wall. The rooms are clean and tidy and Les's breakfasts are well worth getting up for. Do stay for an evening meal which will be good value and very tasty.

Brilliant views, very warm and friendly welcome and tasty breakfasts made with excellent ingredients. We stayed for a wedding and met many returning guests, always a good sign of a place you know you want to come back to.

Arriving on the motorbike and being told you can put in the garage is one of the best things you hear at a b+b. Was then given advice on two good routes to ride over the next two days, Les is a brilliant host with a decent selection of bottled local ales. Would stay there again and perhaps even look... More

Passed many times and every time we said, let's go. Today we did. A very warm welcome and well catered for. The interior is very friendly and the host too! Also a very warm welcome for our dog Dot. A place to visit again!!

Very warm and welcoming, les even came and collected us in the pouring rain as it was getting dark and we were further away than we realised (bad mileage advice from the book!). The bedroom was lovely and heater was on and whole place was very clean and super welcoming :) les was the best craic, and food was excellent.

6 of us stayed here on our Hadrian Wall walk - Les is a great host - what you see is what you get and that was perfect for us, Pet. Food was filling and wholesome and it was great to have a choice of main courses, puds, beer and breakfast items. This is a 'no frills'place - solid in... More

Having walked 12 miles of Hadrian's Wall up and down the When Sill the Old Repeater Station was a welcome sight. Les provided a great Geordie welcome-everyone woman is 'pet' and every man 'mate'. The food was very good and the beer welcome. The rooms were comfortable if masculine but it's a fabulous location just after ( or before!) the... More
