We stayed here for two nights (12th/13th May). We arrived at Holmhead after walking the difficult part of Hadrian's Wall Path, it was fantastic to walk off the path straight into this homely B&B after a gruelling day of rain and wind (we were soaked). Unfortunately we had to go back to collect our car from the previous B&B due to the AD122 not running through the week (we were not aware of this until the night before!) Fortunately Alan offered to take us the fifteen miles back to car (above and beyond any expectations) what a star!!! Both Judy and Alan are lovely attentive hosts who offer a homely welcome to their B&B. The breakfasts and packed lunches were lovely a welcomed feast!! The local Greenhead Hotel offer good food and drink and a catch up with other walkers (definitely worth a visit). You won't go wrong fitting a stay in at Holmhead whilst taking in the sights around Hadrian's wall. Thanks for everything!!
