Great place
Spent a week here meeting up with 2 friends. The house was brilliant, owners very friendly and if you need any thing you just have to ask. In a quite village with 2 pubs and a cafe. within easy walking distance of Harrians wall and other wall areas within a short drive away. Would recommend this to any one wishing to visit Hadrians wall.
