“Fantastic B&B - ideal for Hadrian's Wall walkers”
Reviewed May 27, 2011

We stayed at the Dovecote, Hunshaugh, near Chollerford on the 24th May and it was a magical experience. The Victorian walled garden is now in it's prime and to sit there with a glass of wine having had a superb home cooked dinner was simply the best; especially after a hard day's walking. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, David and Jane, and the packed lunch for our next day's trek was also excellent. We had a peek inside the Dovecote itself and it really has been beatifully refurbished. We were in the main house and the room was just as described and after a good night's sleep and a delicious 'full English' we were on our way again. Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Book early.

Just want to say a few words about our wonderful stay at the Dovecote. The weather was fantastic, the accommodation superb and the food delicious. The Dovecote is a beautiful building and it was a privilege to be able to stay there. David and Jane were really friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was delicious. 5 stars ***** best weekend break we have had.

My wife and I stayed there for one night during our Hadrian's Wall walk and the owner Jane could not of been more helpful and welcoming.

The local pub was not serving food so she cooked us the most delicious meal of our entire trip - Fantastic.

The accommodation is of a high standard and is unique.
