We had just walked Hadrian's Wall from Carlisle to Heddon over four days in glorious sunshine and we arrived at Heddon Lodge hot and tired. We were initially apprehensive having heard and seen some indifferent reports but our welcome from David and Jacqui, accompanied by a refreshing cup of tea (or coffee or orange, if preferred), could not have been better. The Lodge was immaculate and the facilities just perfect - as a larger than most person, the voluminous shower was magnificent.
The alfresco breakfast on the verandah with an exceptional view towards Newcastle in aforesaid sunshine was superb with fresh fruit and yogurt to die for followed by an excellently cooked plateful.
A nice touch was an offer from Jacqui to drive my foot - blistered wife to the pub for dinner.
Hadrian Wall walkers don't miss this gem!
