Abbey Bridge, Lanercost
Abbey Bridge is a Grade II Listed former inn set in a beautiful valley close to Lanercost Priory and Hadrian's Wall. A home-from-home ideal for walkers, cyclists or for a longer stay to explore Hadrian's Wall country and the Lake District.
If you are looking for a relaxed and friendly home at the end of a long day walking Hadrians Wall; want a rural retreat where you can take a deep breath and unwind following a day out exploring this quiet but fascinating part of the world or are travelling between Scotland and England and need somewhere to rest for the night then the Abbey Bridge, is the B&B for you. The Abbey Bridge was built in 1832 as a public house called the Black Bull, although there had been a hostelry on the site of what was an important crossing of the River Irthing for at least a couple of centuries beforehand. The building is Grade II listed and made from the local sandstone under a slate roof.
The rooms are warm, well equipped and ensuite. The beds are comfortable and the nights so quite you may find it difficult to get up for breakfast. The breakfasts are leisurely and we serve locally produced product where possible with lots of choice for meat eaters and vegetarians alike.
Many of our guests are walking the Hadrians Wall long distance footpath, which is under a mile from Abbey Bridge. We have good clothes and boot drying facilities if the Cumbrian weather has been unfriendly and will welcome you with a hot drink and slice of cake.
