Good Hotel Guide Review

Protected from the border’s lawless raiders by a 16th-century ‘bastle’, Elaine Packer’s ‘superb’ Georgian farmhouse overlooking Hadrian’s Wall is full of ‘every comfort’. Proper tea and home-made cake, taken by the drawing room fire or in the ‘beautiful’ walled garden, welcome arriving guests. Shutters at the windows promise a sound night in the traditionally decorated bedrooms; ‘sumptuously styled’, each is well supplied with glossy magazines, cafetière coffee, a biscuit barrel and chocolates. ‘So peaceful.’ Ordered the night before, breakfast features ‘delicious’ home-cooked Northumbrian fare; the ‘gigantic portions’ are just the thing for hikers and bikers setting off for the day. Packed lunches available (£6).

Guest comments

'Superb Georgian house with French doors into beautiful walled garden on Hadrians Wall. Elaine Packer has thought of every comfort from chocolates and all manner of teas in the room to sumptuous decoration and fabrics in all the rooms. The breakfast is the best I have had in a B and B. Delicious range of home cooked food with gigantic portions!! I slept like a log in the bed - shutters closed- perfect peace! ' - Tessa Allen - May, 2016
