After a trip to Scotland I decided to come down to the kielder dam for a few days and have a look around. I went to a local tourist information centre and asked if they could help me with some accommadation and they put me onto Hassendean Bed and Breakfast, they told me that they accepted Motorcyclists,When I arrived I was greeted by a warm and friendly welcome by Janet she told me there was a secure parking area at the back of the house and there was a hard standing area for my bike. After parking up Janet kindly made me a drink .After my drink she took me up to see my room and let me look at my room with its en-suite facilities and it was a beautiful double room with great views out across the local countryside.
Janet told me about the wi-fi code so I could access the internet and also about the information pack in my room for the local pubs and resteraunts and attractions in the area. After I was settled it was too late for me to go out for food, thats when Janet kindly offered me some food as they were just about to eat and was great ( Thankyou). After my food Les told me about the local area for bike riding what best routes to take and nice villages to visit that was a great help because the next day I was to visit the kielder dam.
After a great night sleep, I came down stairs to a great breakfast with a great variety of differnt foods to eat. Following that I went out for the day.
On my return I met up with Janet and Les and we went down to the local restaurant for dinner, the food was very nice and they also had a good choice of beers too. The following night and breakfast was great too.
If I return to that area I will be trying them first for accommadation because of the great welcome,great food and help they both gave me when I stopped with them for a short while.
