The B&B is actually by the wall! The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely. There was plenty of choice of teas and milk was available in a jug rather than little tubs. We had a huge bed which was very comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful. We paid extra for a packed lunch which was well worth it.

A perfect B and B. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. plenty of hot water. The dining/ sitting room was open 24 hrs. There was fresh milk in the fridge for us to make tea. Liam lent us a cork screw and wine glasses for our nightcap when he brought us back from the pub. I would certainly stay... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Willowford Farm at the beginning of March this year and we loved it. Our accommodation was clean and nicely appointed and the breakfast was very good. Liam and his family were very welcoming and helpful, doing everything possible to make us comfortable. Hadrian's Wall is literally partially on the farm--we walked the... More

This is as close as you can get to the wall. Was shown a lovely room with underfloor heating and a nice wetroom. meals and wifi available in a separate room which looked like a youth hostel. Bedrooms to be honest need updating. Saying that we received a warm welcome and was given a lift to the local pub which... More

This B&B is closet you can get to the Hadrian wall....it is 10 meters from it. The room we stayed was large with a nice shower, and the breakfast was fresh and tasty. Liam gave us a 3 minutes ride to the pub and got us a ride back. The two dogs are great and his daughter Ana has always... More

One night stay while walking Hadrians Path but long enough to recognise genuine customer care and value. Lovely welcome, excellent room and quality breakfast. Lauren drove us to their pub in the evening (The Samson) and Liam gave us a lift back.

We were booked into Willowford Farm only because we were 'double-booked' by the hotel we should have stayed in on our walk of Hadrian;s Wall. It was absolutely perfect. The rooms were clean and with superb facilities, especially for a farm style B&B. The owners were friendly and the breakfast was a typical, healthy farm breakfast - and plenty of... More

Everything said by previous reviewers is echoed by me. Great location right on the wall, warm welcome from Liam and Lauren, and their dogs, good breakfast, comfortable bed and bathroom, lift to the pub - co-owned by Liam and Lauren - well worth the visit, delicious food there. And next morning we continued our walk along the wall, without having... More

Stayed at Willowford Farm for one night while doing the Hadrian's Wall Path and were very happy with everything. Our welcoming hosts showed us to our room which was a spacious one in a converted barn, all very tastefully done. Read that other reviewers enjoyed playing with the dogs and so did I, but most of all I had fun... More

After a wonderful walking day on Hadrian's Wall in rather hot, sunny conditions; arriving tired and in need of a shower. what a pleasant surprise to meet Liam and Lauren, who took no time at all in ensuring we were made welcome and shown to our room. The room was absolutely lovely; I believe it was a barn conversion, expertly... More
