We were booked here by Hadrians Wall Adventure Tours who gave us a 1/2 day tour and picked us up from the train station in Haltwhistle and drove us not only to Burnhead B&B, but picked us up the next morning to catch the train out. The owners of the B&B are lovely and proud and happy to be your hosts. It is their home, but the two rooms upstairs are ensuite, clean and very comfortable. The hosts are happy to dry out your wet walking gear overnight and their breakfasts are casual and hearty. You definately get the feeling you are in somebody's home, but there is sufficient room carved out for guests who have their own sitting area by the back door which overlooks the fields marked by the stony wall enclosures and occasional lifestock. It is located literally on Hadrian's wall - it probably runs under thei inn - and so you will see walkers who are hiking the wall as they pass by. This would be a great place to stop for the night if hiking the wall were in your plans. We just had the afternoon, and so Gary's Adventure Tour was perfect. The Mile Castle Pub is down their driveway and across the main road past a few cows. It's a nice walk and a nice dinner. It was a pleasant night, but I wondered what it would have been like if we'd been socked in by rain. It's remote, but that is part of the beauty.
