This is a great stop near The Wall and Vindolanda. Great breakfast. Nice furnishings. Great bed with flat screen, plenty of space, a heck of a nice guy owning it and a great bathroom! It is also close to Hexham, which is a cool village. Great place!

I took the girls for a day out at Hadrian's Wall and we all had fun. We decided to stay overnight so we could explore another day. Looking for B&B, we've stumbled across this little gem! The owner, Mike, pleasantly informed me that he's got a family room available. The room is very spacious, comfortable, tidy and very homely. We've... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my overnight stay at Mike's B & B. The room was extremely comfortable and clean, great facilities for making drinks etc and the breakfast was wholesome and delicious. I felt like royalty eating from the dinner service it was served from.

Stayed three nights July 2016. Room was great and well appointed. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice. The Strand is ideally located for walking some of the best sections of the wall. The owner is a fund of information and extremely helpful. Our stay couldn't have been better. Thanks Mike!

Mike was a friendly owner and went out of his way to make my stay enjoyable, as apart of my cycle journey on Hadrian Cycle Way. Very hearty breakfast, very comfortable room in a lovely homely cottage.

Better than I thought it would be, because: 1) The prices are so reasonable, compared with others. 2) Mike is so friendly, it's like being at home! 3) Very handy for Vindolanda and Housesteads. BTW, catch the guided tour at Vindolanda - the era is brought alive by an experienced archaeologist/guide's enthusiasm, and the artefacts museum. In comparison, Housesteads is... More
