My husband and I stayed at the Strand Cottage at the end of April 2012. We booked this B & B because it was "dog friendly". Brilliant choice. We were given accommodation separate from the main house which was excellent since it gave us the freedom to take the dog out without disturbing anyone else. The room and facilities were spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was delicious, well presented and nicely served. A coal fire was burning which was very welcoming and homely. Angela was a lovely hostess, very easy to chat to knowledgeable about the local area. The location is excellent for Hadrian's wall and near enough to Newcastle. We arrived late evening on Friday due to work commitments which unfortunately left us little time to look for choices for an evening meal. We ended up in Bardon Mill which was closest and went to the first place that was open. Meal there was just ok - nothing to rave about. Our stay here was pleasant and we would definately recommend Strand Cottage.
