This has to be one of the worst B&B's I've ever had the misfortune to be booked in to. We were cycling Hadrians Wall cycle way in July and this was the first over night stop on our trip. We had two rooms booked as there were four of us, we were given the choice of a bath or shower... More

We arrived wet and tired and after a really warm and friendly welcome the owners took our wet coat and boots to dry. Our rooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable, we had a delicious breakfast with plenty of choice and enjoyed the music and Art A place we would absolutely visit again.

We were booked here for one overnight stay whilst cycling Hadrian's Wall. The room allocated to us was cramped, dirty and uninviting. The shower had a flannel hanging from it, the tea/coffee making facility was unhygienic i.e. dirty kettle, cups and teaspoons situated in the corner of the room on a dirty table. Cheap tea and coffee was provided. The... More

Cycling Hadrian's Wall and this was meant to be our first overnight stop. But...rooms filthy. Bathrooms disgusting, thick mould around shower and bath. Dirty toilet. Dust pretty much everywhere. This place hasn't been cleaned in a long time. We were expected to lock expensive bikes outside against railing next to main road! Lack of welcome very evident. One room had... More

We've been walking the Hadrian's Wall and have been staying at B&B's since we left Wallsend, so we have some previous experiences with other B&B's to compare the various B&B's against. Our first experience once we walked through the doors was the mess of the house. The family have small children, but our home was never this untidy with our... More

Stayed at this B&B on our third night walking Hadrian's Wall. It is a cluttered house, and in places did not appear clean. There was a wet, used, face flannel hanging in our shower and a hair in the shower tray. The beds had piles of cushions and extra rugs on them, which once removed, took up space on the... More

I had to take a taxi from Newtown to Brampton during my Hadrian's Wall walk as I could not find closer accommodation. When I arrived tired, with aching feet I walked in and couldn't find ANYONE after repeated shouting up the stairs. I went back outside and only then noticed the wireless doorbell mounted on the hinge side of the... More
