During our weeklong hiking trip along Hadrians Wall, we stayed here for 2 nights at this absolutely fantastic B&B. Everything was just perfect! The hosts are so friendly and accommodating; upon arrival we were warmly welcomed with a very nice afternoon thee and cake after a long day walking. We stayed in Caligula's Chamber, with an amazing view, great ensuite... More

A kind and welcoming lady with amazing attention to... More
