Hadrian's Wall with a twist


Walking in the stunning Northumberland National Park and the world famous Hadrian's Wall

Why not enjoy a walk along the most iconic sections of Hadrians's wall and then head off North to pick up the Pennine Way path, where you can stop off at a remote mountain bothy in the middle of the woods for lunch. After lunch you will then head off to walk along Greenlee Lough which takes you through a mosaic of habitats, which all look very different depending on the time of year.  The birdlife and insects these habitats support also changes with the seasons.  Taking time to stop off at the bird hide to watch the wildlife on the lough.  Then heading on to pick up the Hadrian's wall path heading towards the highest point along the wall to see the breathtaking views of the vast countryside.

Great Feedback from our guests recent stay!!

Stopped for one night on our Pennine Way tour and we found Vallum Lodge to be a pleasant little B&B. We were warmly greeted by our hosts who showed us to room N°4.

The room was a nice size and came with a comfy double bed plus a single too. The bathroom was immaculate and well looked like it had recently been redecorated in fact. The views from our window were lovely too, very scenic.

Breakfast was really lovely, scrambled eggs, bacon, black pudding and toast...delicious and locally sourced I believe. We also bought a packed lunch for £7.50 which consisted of a sandwich, crisps, banana, biscuit and juice. The lunch was fine, however I was a tad disappointed that I couldn't eat the biscuit as it wasn't gluten free, despite ordering a gluten free sandwich oweing to coeliac disease!

Overall we had really nice stay here and I would recommend this B&B to others.

Specifically requested to stay here again after first staying in 2014. Happy to find hosts were as gracious as ever and the hospitality remains top notch. Great accommodations as well as breakfast and lunch packed for our continued hike on Hadrian's Wall.
