Carraw is a very nice older stone house in a very interesting setting (top of Hadrian's Wall) It is a ways to travel for meals but is a great place to stay if exploring the wall. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable, however it was the smallest of all our rooms on our entire 3 week... More

We were on a driving tour of England, Scotland and Wales, and chose Carraw as our stop for the Hadrian's Wall portion of our trip. Everything about the place was perfect - the location, the building, the staff, the room, the service, the food - everything perfect. We hated that we only booked one night, and would highly recommend it... More

Carraw House is a perfect base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall, with the added fun of being right there on the wall line, with the Vallum still running through the property. 5 star treatment by host & hostess would strongly recommend bed & Breakfast, could not fault anything , Had great stay certainly would return.

Negative out the way first- we stayed here for a wedding, so we spent very little time at the b&b. which is a downside because it really is a cracking place! The welcome was lovely and they allowed us to check in 3 hours early, then had no issues booking us a taxi. The room is very cosy and clean.... More

We agree that Carraw House is a perfect base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall, with the added fun of being right there on the wall line, with the Vallum still running through the property.

We spent two nights here on our way up to Lindisfarne. Carraw is on the old Roman military road right next to Hadrian's Wall and near all of the main sites. The owners were extremely hospitable and friendly, full of useful advice. Our rooms were luxuriously comfortable and attractive with everything we needed. There was a range of teas, coffee... More

Everything about this B&B merits praise. From the warm welcome, to the super comfortable rooms and bathrooms, to the gourmet breakfasts - not to mention the stunning views. Only wish we could have stayed longer.
