“Good place to rest weary walking feet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Clean, fresh accommodation very close to Houseteads Fort and accessible bus travel on the AD122. Friendly hosts and big hearty walkers breakfast. Minor negative was we had to pay bus out and a £10 taxi fare home from the nearest pub as no meal was available in house on the night we stayed and this is this reason we rated 'average' for value.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Two small but clean, quiet, and well-furnished guest rooms in a cozy farm homestead within easy walking distance of Housesteads Roman Fort. We spent two nights and enjoyed the landlord's breakfasts, cooked and served in his kitchen. He offered to let us spend afternoon time in the house's conservatory, but the weather was too cold and rainy to make that possible, although that would be pleasant on a sunny day. We highly recommend this place for walkers or classics buffs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We enjoyed meeting our host, who welcomed us warmly and did what he could to find us food (though we arrived late)! Our room was comfortable and we appreciated that the guest house was separate from the main house; we stayed out a little later and felt a little more comfortable because of this. The next morning's breakfast was excellent: the best we had while in England/Scotland. Our host also did a great job of recommending Hadrian's Wall sites to us, and they were very close nearby!

Our only complaints were small: the location did not have Wi-Fi access (and data service was weak, at least in the guest house), and the location was not marked at all from the road - we drove by twice before figuring out we had the right place, and we couldn't have done it without GPS!

Stayed here while running Hadrian's wall, very well located for the best parts of the wall, clean warm comfortable room with thoughtful tray of hot drinks and snacks, the owner made us very welcome and cooked us a great breakfast. I would definitely recommend this.

Only five minutes walk from the Hadrian's Wall path and Housesteads fort. Beautiful wild surroundings. Delightful hosts. Lovely room, in a small building separated from the main house. So, so quiet and well heated. Everything perfect except that there is no WiFi (for the moment?) and the signal on my handset was often disappearing. Breakfast was delicious. Our charming hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Room Tip: There are just 2 rooms in a small building separated from the main house. Both excellent.
