This was our first stop whilst walking the full length of Hadrians wall
Upon arrival after a long arduous first days walking, we were given a very warm and friendly greeting by the proprietor Paula who showed us around and explained the layout of the premises and its facilities. She even put the kettle on to boil whilst showing us round.
Our room was comfy and warm and equipped with all we would need .the adjacent lounge was spotlessly clean with a TV books to read and a free to use internet connected PC - this allowed us to update friends and family of our progress.
We dined that evening at a pub in the village just a 10 minute walk away from North Farm
After a perfect nights sleep breakfast was served in the dining room where a good range of cereals toast and preserves were available
Paula also provided a very nice fresh coffee and boiled fresh eggs for those that wanted them
Before we left Paula spent 20 minutes or more advising us of hints and tips when walking the wall .Her knowledge of the walk route and things to see proved incredibly valuable to us.
We left this hostel feeling more like family friends than paying guests
I WILL FULLY RECOMMEND THESE PREMISES TO MY FRIENDS
