A work colleague and I were walking Hadrian's wall and arrived at Quarryside late afternoon in a thunderstorm, both completely drenched and our spirits at their lowest ebb.
We received the warmest of welcomes from Elizabeth who sat us down with hot drinks and homemade cake after showing us to the most comfortable rooms we could have wished for. There was a drying cupboard which was a godsend and allowed us to sort out our wet boots and gear which were completely dry by the next day. In the evening they took us to the local pub for an excellent very reasonable meal washed down with some wonderful real ale - then the chef brought us back! Finally, I had the best night's sleep at Quarry Side i've had for ages and the breakfast next day was excellent.
If you're walking the wall don't hesitate to book in here - trust me you won't be disappointed and the position literally right on the trail is ideal for an overnight stop.
One thing I would say - I've just read a review here from another traveler that is less than favourable. Nothing wrong with that except I do question from the description whether they are talking about Quarry Side? A few things don't ring true to me so they may be describing somewhere else I think?
