Let me begin with our host. He was welcoming and attentive. He put us in the right direction for this whole section of the wall. One of our boys ran to a bus to try to get to a grocery before it closed, having little idea of the region or busses in the area. Our host offered to drive to... More

I stayed at the Holmhead while I was hiking along Hadrian's Wall. The camping barn was perfect for our group. The location is near both the trail and a bus stop. We could use the kitchenette or have meals at the nearby pub. The owners were very helpful.

Myself and twelve friends used Holmhead as our base for three days during our coast-to-coast walk of Hadrian's Wall. We stayed in the camping barn which was clean, cozy and outfitted with a kitchenette, toilet and showers. It was perfect for our needs, and reasonably priced. Owners were very hospitable. The farm is a short walk to the bus stop... More

My partner and I stayed one night in Holmhead B&B on our first visit of Hadrian's Wall. We'll definitely be back for longer! - Great location: directly on the Wall path, near Thirlwall Castle ruins, 30 min walk away from Walltown Crags (the best view of the wall); 10 miles away from Roman History Museum and Vindolanda. - Beautiful old...

I visited Holmhead while walking the Pennine Way. Cheery welcome with tea and muffin offered. Comfortable room and bed - shower room small but effective. Delicious, nicely presented breakfast with my bacon crisp - just as I requested. There is a comfortable communal sitting room with attractive view towards Greenhead village. The setting by Thirlwall Castle is beautiful and very... More

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Holmhead B&B, in order to have a day-hike on Hadrian's Wall. I picked this B&B for a few reasons--it's close to some lovely hiking areas on the Wall, and I really wanted to see Sycamore Gap; my last name is Holm, so I thought that was a good omen; their website...

Thank you for a comfortable stay this weekend. The b&b is in a lovely location, down a farm track. Our room was clean, comfortable and just what we needed. We were up at 5am for a hadrians wall hike and the owners left me some cereal and breakfast bars out in the lounge which was appreciated. The lounge area was... More

This is at the cheaper end of B&Bs when doing the Hadrian’s Wall walk (£68 for a double), and it is right on the trail, so no extra miles finding it. The owners have taken over an existing B&B business and seem to have improved it quite a lot. There is a communal guest lounge which is very comfortable and... More

We spent four days in the self catering cottage here. The cottage has everything you need, and is fine for a family of four. The area is very nice: the cottage is on the Hadrian wall path, and you can do some nice walks in the area. The owners are friendly and helpful.

A perfect spot right on Hadrian's Wall Path. It's very convenient for getting an early start to the hiking day, and we couldn't have asked for more gracious and generous hosts. Sharing their wealth of knowledge about the local area and its history, we were able to make the most of our three days at Holmhead Guest House. Thanks you,... More
