Nigel made us feel at home.

Food is representative of the region, high quality; and the guest house compliments the outdoor scenery; there are options for non-meat eaters.

This was a great choice and I would come back any time…Thank you, Nigel, for a great experience

Thanks, Nigel and Catherine, for a couple of lovely days enjoying the hospitality of you and the people of this region. Walking on the Wall was a great reminder of how beautiful our countryside is. Hope to see you in the future when we complete Hadrian’s Wall.
