Grindon Farm - Cartshed & Old Farmhouse
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We stayed in the converted cartshed after an arduous walk over the central section of the Hadrian's Wall path, and we were blown away by how lovely the accommodation was, and how friendly the owners Jackie and Dave were. We felt truly taken care of, and we had the whole living room area to ourselves which has excellent views looking South, as well as some chickens and sheep just in front. The fact that they do food there makes it very convenient, though it was a little bit expensive for what it was, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Nevertheless, we had an excellent stay, and would recommend anyone to go there and hire out all the rooms for a family or friends stay. Many thanks!

I stayed in the b&b during a charity walk of Hadrian's wall which is very nearby so I didn't have time to explore the area. It is a very relaxing and attractive conversion with a conservatory style communal area overlooking the lovely countryside although some walkers may prefer the old repeater station b&b up the road. The room was well stocked with drinks and lovely biscuits and I liked their obvious attention to ethical & organic tourism.

We stayed at the Old Farmhouse and our New Zealand family were looking forward to experiencing a famous northern welcome. However, if what we experienced is typical of what travellers experience - give me a southern welcome any day! Yes, we understand that the owners were away, but it is a farm with sheep and chickens needing to be fed and watered so there must have been someone to stand in for them to care for the human guests also. But no one greeted us or even called to see us at any time during our week's stay. There was no tea, coffee or milk left for us which we thought would be standard - it certainly was in Devon and Cornwall where we were also left home-made cake and a bottle of wine!
Having said that, the barn conversion was very comfortable and warm, with basic items provided. The view from the living room was wonderful and ever-changing. A great place from which to tour the area.

What a beautiful farm! Quiet and peaceful with gorgeous views.
Jackie and Dave are wonderful hosts. Jackie served us a delicious dinner and Dave made a great breakfast.
We stayed at the Cartshed and were the only guests there so we had the living room to ourselves. Sitting on the comfortable sofa and looking through the down-to-the-floor windows, it was like a dream looking at the view, watching the sheep and hens - and the weather shifting.
There must have been very gifted architects and interior architects who have designed the place, it is very attractive indeed.
Jackie and Dave are admirable people who do their utmost for their guests and to run the farm in the best and most environmental way. We wish them all the best in the future and highly recommend a stay at Grindon Farm.

We recently hiked Hadrian's Wall and had the good fortune to stay at Grindon Farm. Some places we stayed were really nice but this place is beautiful. The hosts are wonderful and know just when to give you the information you need or the quiet space you desire. Breakfast was delicious but the view from our little cottage was breathtaking. (The heated floors on our sore toes was a bonus).

Excellent one night B&B stay as a family. Also available as self catering for longer stays. Extremely friendly. Excellent dinner as well as breakfast. Well decorated. Great views. We had a conservatory style living room as well as dining room. Children enjoyed feeding the chickens in the morning and being on a farm. Only negatives: curtains (vertical blinds) were not black out and if walking the wall a reasonable step down the road compared with, sa, the Old Repeating Station but no problem if driving and more than made up for by laity of welcome and food.

Stayed in the Old Farmhouse 13-20 April - myself and husband and a close friend (all in our 50's) and her daughter, a mere youngster in her 20's, and a small white westie. Great accommodation with spectacular views. Many hours spent watching the weather move over the hills. In a week we had everying that England could find - sunshine, rain, mist, snow and wind - but it was great. Took walks along the wall, drives in all four directions. One day we followed the route found in a book in the farmhouse which took us south over the moors. One day, north to Berwick on the A68 - fantastic road with some great views and down the coast. Bambrugh has the best beach. Spent the evenings cooking for ourselves in the well stocked kitchen and playing board games. Great geteway.
