The bed could do with a replacement of the mattress. The present mattress - as another reviewer already stated - must date from Emperor Hadrian's time. It is an impertinence for any walker who needs a good night's sleep after a long walk. Breakfast was fine, a homebaked bred was a treat.

We loved the place. It would have got 5 stars if some of the fixtures and fittings had been in a bit of a better condition. That being said, it was perfectly comfortable and our hosts went out of their way to accomodate us. They even closed two of the five rooms so we could all have a private bathroom!... More

Although I agree that the breakfast at this B+B was great in the true English manner, our bed was apparently from emperor Hadrian's times. Spent the most uncomfortable night of our trip here. Also, the house could do with a good scrubbing. Main photo is of Matfen Hall which is a different establishment. We feel let down by Tripadvisor contributors... More

Very comfortable, country room. Friendly hosts and a good breakfast. Wonderful quiet location. Great brewery right next door for meals (or a drink). It was our second stay here and I would certainly go back.

We booked all the rooms with extras on the floor! Struan and Jenny accommodated all of us which was just great. The huge dining room and fabulous breakfast topped off our weekend perfectly. Hope to return soon Thank you

Matfen High House is about a mile from Robin Hood Inn which is on the Hadrian's wall trail. You walk next to fields and through a woodland, over streams and there stands Matfen House. We received a warm welcome and had a very large and comfortable bedroom with French period furnishings. Jenny provided an excellent breakfast in the morning which... More

Another one of my stop-off points while walking the Hadrian's Wall Trail... It's a mile off the Trail and the sign for it can be spotted just after the Robin Hood pub if you are heading westwards... you can reach it easily enough on foot by traversing a wood and crossing some fields... Struan and Jenny are great hosts and... More

A pleasant enough stay, but the main thing to mention here is the breakfast, a vast amount of cereals to choose from, freshly baked bread and a lovely cooked breakfast. the hosts are keen to help and drove us to and from the robin hood inn for food in the evening.
