I stayed here for three nights while walking Hadrian's Wall and visiting local Roman forts/museums. Reception was excellent, with Mike coming out to meet me as I alighted from my car and immediately showing me to my room, which was in the detached annex (the only other time I have been met at my car was at a 4-star hotel). The room was clean, nicely furnished and with good facilities that included a refrigerator stocked with fresh milk.
Aside from the usual cereals, toast etc, there was a very good choice of cooked breakfasts, which were perfectly prepared and delicious. Both Angela and Mike were very friendly and helpful with local advice when needed.
I recommend this B&B unreservedly.
