We stayed here for 2 nights on our way up and down to Scotland. It is situated about 5 miles from the motorway but in a really peaceful village. It is excellent value for money and rooms are immaculate. We ate in the bar on both evenings, again like the breakfast, it was excellent. Our Son is at Uni in... More

Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "String of Horses". Colin, Jill and the team never let us down, it gets better every time we choose to spend our time with them. The rooms are fantastic, infact we mentioned it was Eileens Birthday and we were upgraded to a four poster bedroom with a beautiful en-suite with corner... More

This was a deal we got for a two night stay. After reading the reviews we decided to book an extra night as it looked an ideal chill out place. We were not disappointed, right from the start we were made welcome and shown into a nice clean bright room. We had dinner on the Sunday night and it was... More

We enjoyed our stay at String of Horses, very good value, nice friendly people working hard to make your stay pleasant, in this 4star country inn. Very quiet location, but a few minuets away from some quaint little villages and hamlets. Further drive to historic Hadrian's wall and attractions or drive the other way to the beautifull Lake District.

A lovely traditional inn set in beautiful countryside. Our friends had their wedding reception here as they like it so much and they made an excellent choice. The owners were very welcoming and the staff could not be more polite and helpful. The food was delicious, including breakfast, all fresh high quality ingredients. The room we had was immaculate with... More

Stayed for 2 nights from the 2nd September in this great country inn which is ideally situated to take in all the area has to offer. We knew we were going to enjoy our stay from the moment we walked through the door to a warm welcome. Our room (10) was compact, spotless and tastefully furnished. We had dinner on... More

Excellent location for exploring Hadrian's Wall, other historical sites and the wonderful countryside. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly. Excellent food and a lovely breakfast.

We stayed here on route to the Lakes, the place has lots of character and the room was very clean. Staff were very friendly and gave exceptional service. Would certainly recommend this Inn if you want a nice relaxing stay in a place that has fantastic service and lovely food.

We stayed here on our way back to London from the Highlands. It is a lovely characterful old building with spacious well-kept rooms and great service. The staff were friendly and informative. We stayed as a family of four in one big room and really enjoyed our visit. Hadrian's wall is a short drive away. Highly recommended.

Lovely bedroom with a jucuzzi bath was nice, wi-fi was bit in and out and pillows very soft but otherwise good, few drinks in bar and enjoyed a reasonable meal. Breakfast in morning was a bit disorganised, just a young inexperienced lad doing all the table waiting which made things feel a bit rubbish and full english was quite stingey... More
