This is the fifth time I have stayed at the Carraw and still utterly lived it. My husband and I have been here as a couple and as a family with our baby. Always an amazing welcome and perfect for all occasions. This time, we celebrated new year and could not have been happier. Food is freshly made and the... More

I would like to thank Leah and Kevin for a very enjoyable stay, although the weather wasn't great we still managed an excellent walk along the wall, and coming back to a very warm and comfortable accomodation was all we needed. Food was excellent and we would also recommend the range of wine you can enjoy in the comfortable lounge.... More

We stayed at Carraw Bed and Breakfast for three nights in March. The weather was cold and windy, but Leah and Kevin Vigars did everything possible to dispel the gloom. The house has been sympathetically renovated and comfortably furnished, with lovely views over the countryside. Our room was large, light and airy, with a spacious en-suite bathroom and plenty of...

An ideal place to stop for visiting Hadrian's Wall but quite a way from the nearest town of Hexham. Room was clean and comfortable and excellent breakfast. More for the outdoor hiker than the just stopping overnight visitor as it is in the middle of moorland and very exposed to the elements as we found when visiting on a windy... More

The wind may have been cold but the welcome certainly wasn't. From the moment we arrived Leah looked after us superbly and we were made to feel very welcome. The property was ideally positioned for peace and quiet, situated in dramatic scenery so close to Hadrian's Wall. The home made biscuits are to die for, the generous breakfasts kept us... More

Booked this guest house based on the reviews and they did not disappoint. We arrived to warm friendly welcome, room, facilities and breakfast were spot on the hosts are very attentive without being over bearing. The location is remote but idyllic no hesitation in recommending this guest house.

This was our second visit to Carraw, having stayed back in 2010. Once again, the overall experience was exceptional. The house and gardens were as we remembered - immaculate, and breakfast was absolutely beautiful. The owners are as accommodating as they are unobtrusive, striking a perfect balance. For those looking for quality accommodation in Hadrian's Wall country, look no further,... More
