Can it get any better when you look out your window and the view is full of sheep? This is a working farm but that does not stop Liam from being a first-rate host. After a leg-weary hike atop the Hadrian Wall crags, this was a perfect stop for us - right on the trail. Liam took us to his... More

We stayed here recently during a team challenge to walk the wall. Willowford farm was a perfect haven. The rooms were warm clean and very pretty with excellent organic toiletries. The food was good and our packed lunches were nutritious with homemade bread. The owners are welcoming and friendly and go above and beyond. Allan the dog is great

Great B&B right on the wall. Rooms are well furnished with modern bathrooms. Wifi is very strong. Personable young inn keepers are quite helpful. Best stop yet along the wall. Too bad only one night here at this "best yet" of our holiday. Salmon inn in Gilsland was a great place for dinner. The keepers here booked a table for... More

This establishment is right on Hadrian's Wall, very convenient for walkers!! The owners, Liam and Lauren, have a fine establishment: clean, comfortable, tidy rooms created out of converted farm buildings. They also run the pub in the nearby village and are prepared to drive you to for your evening meal. Breakfast was excellent, as was the packed lunch. Last but... More

Three of us stayed for one night. The welcome was great. The rooms were spacious and interesting. They seem to be a stable conversion. They have everything you would want with very modern bathrooms. The location is wonderful, being actually on the Hadrian's wall path and the breakfast and packed lunch were excellent. Of note was the fact that Liam... More

We found Willowford Farm on the website for a walking tour we couldn't take (my husband has a recovering broken foot) — what a godsend! It is a wonderful place, right on the wall.... We did a short hike the first day west to Birdoswald, the second day we drove to the Steel Rigg car park and took and amazing... More

The stony driveway to the accommodation belies its quality. Very friendly hosts. Beautiful wood beam room and excellent taste. Many lovely touches. Cold tile floor. Beautiful if small bathroom. Excellent breakfast. Free Wifi. Great position right by Hadrian's Wall. Good value.

Not for you you if want pulsing nightlife, but if being right on Hadrian's Wall (literally) in the middle of outstanding countryside is for you, then this is the spot. Rooms have character and have been done in a cross between contemporary and traditional style that works beautifully - exposed beams, tiled wetrooms, antique pine dressers. Fabulous breakfast (smoked trout... More
