Close to Housesteads.
Situated a few mins drive from the Housestead Roman fort on Hadrian's Wall. Only just got parked as not much room on the driveway - you wouldn't want to park on the road. Nice friendly welcome from the owner. The room was a reasonable size, with a surprisingly large en-suite. Could have been a bit cleaner - it was what my Wife calls "mancleaned" :-) One thing I did not like was that there was no lock on our door. I'm sure that the owner is trustworthy but there are many different people pass through a B&B. The cooked breakfast was excellent, with a good choice of cereals and fruit too. The closest place to eat in the evening was a pub/restaurant named 'Twice Brewed'. About 5mins drive. We had a wonderful meal there.
