Described as a bunkhouse but more of a B&B. We were backpacking so had no transport. We arrived at The Crown (PH) in Heddon on the Wall at 9pm and asked if their was a camp-site nearby. There isn't, but the barman informed us he could maybe find a bed nearby. When asked "how far" he replied "It's OK, she... More

Stayed here on the last night of a walk from Bowness-on-Solway along Hadrian's Wall to Newcastle. Accommodation is hostel-type (rooms with bunks) in a small complex just inside the main farm gate that includes a courtyard, lounge, kitchen, showers, toilets. Everything well looked after and clean. The kitchen has tea, coffee and milk pretty much on tap - just help... More

We arrived here after a day of walking, and at first there was some confusion if we'd reached the right place, since it isn't really clear where to enter. Once we found our way in, we were greeted very heartily be the owner. The lady was really friendly and helpful. The room was really big for 2 persons, with a... More

Stayed here last night after 5 days walking. Perfect and inexpensive hostel with kitchen and lounge facilities. The manager is helpful and friendly and cooks a mean breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

A great experience. Being picked up after getting a little lost was a very kind and promising start to the visit. The bunk-rooms are well designed, nicely kitted out, clean and well-kept. Everything is in good condition, clean, neat and tidy. In the kitchen it's possible to prepare your own meals, but then, at breakfast meals are prepared for you... More

Room was basic but clean and had everything we needed. We were met by the owner's daughter who showed us to our room and talked through all the facilities. She gave us advice on good places to eat and our alternative options. The owner served breakfast and went out of her way to make sure we were set for the... More

Our host does everything she can to ensure you are comfortable, well fed and prepared for the walking challenges ahead. Located about a mile outside of Heddon on the Wall, the walk to the property is easy along the main road with footpath, and access to the Wall is via a short bridleway next to the property. Couldnt be easier.

Stayed while doing Hadrian Wall way. Convenient for the path. Fantastic, comfortable, warm hostel/ bunkhouse. We had the private room which was comfortable and ensuite. Breakfast v good. Paula good company over breakfast and provided good advice for the way ahead. Can't fault it.

Paula gave me a great welcome. The bunkhouse is worth all its 4 star rating. Comfortable and homely and everything very clean. Breakfast was a bit crazy sharing with a cycle racing team but everyone got fed and watered. A most enjoyable stay.

This is slightly unusual that it is partly a hostel and partly a B and B. It is totally comfortable, totally welcoming and totally friendly. Our experience started when we met the farm's oldest resident who let us into our room. This was followed up by host Paula and the kids. The family have been on this farm for over... More
