A very short notice visit which did not deter the host of this lovely property from providing a first class experience. Caring by nature, he ensured I had everything I needed, much welcomed after a long walk! Great knowledge of the local area and it’s history. The room was at a good standard of cleanliness and had everything that I needed. An unexpected stop, however, if I were to return to the area, I’d come back in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great stay!
Stayed 1/9/2019. Place was dusty and dirty in many places. Food images on website bear no resemblance to food on offer. Website dated 2009. Breakfast table had a yogurt that was 9 days out date. Wish we had gone a little further to the twice brewed Inn.
Les was very friendly and helpful. I arrived extremely wet and Les arranged for some of my gear to be put in the drying room. The room was small but fine for a solo hiker. The selection of tea, coffee and biscuits in the room was very welcome as was the hot shower. I had a continental breakfast but seeing what Les had cooked for some of the other guests made me wish I'd opted for eggs and bacon as well.
We were walking Hadrian's Wall and camping along the way, but when our planned stopover fell through Les kindly took us in. We camped in the garden and enjoyed watching the birds. We learned about the sustainable energy usage of the house from the information board outside! Drinking water was available and there were picnic benches. It is true that The Old Repeater Station is not on Hadrian's Wall Walk, it is on the B6318 which runs parallel to it, but the AD 122 bus stops at the T-junction and will take travellers to sites along the wall to continue their journey. The road was not noisy at night. All in all, it's a very welcoming place to stay, well maintained, eco-minded and excellent value for money; we would love to visit again and stay in the B&B. Our thanks go to Les for sorting us out last minute when we had nowhere else to stay that night!…
A welcome Bed and Breakfast along our Hadrian's Wall hike. A bit difficult to access from the wall hiking path. The room was a bit small, but fully adequate. Our host was amicable and very hospitable. Several other quests and the host afforded a social setting. This Bed and Breakfast is isolated.
