"“The Best B & B On The Wall” A close call but this just won a strong race in our opinion. Everything about the accommodation was very good indeed: we had TWO ranges of luxury bath goods, foot lotions etc. Good. extra large fluffy towels. The welcome tea and scones were delicious. The beds were huge and beautifully sheeted and pillowed. The breakfast: wow! The welcome was a genuine Northern understated charm. I wish we could have stayed longer. What a pity that our two nighter was at the other end of the walk. "

"We were very fortunate to spend 3 nights at this wonderful B&B. It is ideally situated for walking Hadrian's Wall. Our room was very clean and spacious and had a lovely view of the large, beautiful garden. Lynn and all of her staff are welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is delicious, plentiful and there are lots of things to choose from. We would also recommend the packed lunches which are great value for money. We appreciated all of the little extras such as the well stocked tea tray, toiletries and access to a wealth of maps, books and magazines. We would highly recommend Wallsend and will definitely visit again at some point. Thank you to everyone at Wallsend for helping us to enjoy a lovely, relaxing holiday."

"We spent 2 nights at Wallsend as we were finishing the last 2 stages of Hadrian Wall walk. Lynn the owner could not have been more welcoming, we immediately felt at home. The ensuite bedroom was very nicely decorated and furnished. The gardens are beautifully laid out. The afternoon tea and cake was lovely - and complimentary to those staying! The breakfast was superb with lots of fresh fruit and a good choice of dishes to follow. It is also only a couple of minutes walk to the village pub for supper. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Very highly recommended. "

"We needed a bed for the night whilst attending 'Clayfest' and the nearby tavern suggested this delightful guest house which has been renovated to the highest standards one might wish for the price quoted and with every possible need provided for in advance and every new request dealt with likewise. The bedroom was very comfortable and the 'tea tray' had the best selection we have ever encountered - even coffee bags as seen on 'Dragons Den'. The Wallsend achieves the highest possible standards - at some cost to their profits. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of ordered dishes and food provided for 'self service'. The manager kindly made provision for our daughter as a breakfast guest. A very comfortable lounge with newspapers, tourist information and local history books, etc. A beautiful garden and the chickens provide the eggs for breakfast, etc. You will struggle to find any business with higher standards - attention to detail. Room Tip: All rooms appear to be equally good"

"Stayed in the wigwam on 10/06/16. Great setting and surprisingly spacious pods. £30 donated to my charity bike ride 'women v cancer' which I'm cycling in November. Thank you. "

"Our final day's walk to the end of the wall was a tough one, but ending up at Wallsend Guest House made it all worthwhile. The excellent and generous pre-booked champagne afternoon tea had been saved for us (we arrived around 5pm) and we sat out in the sunshine, in the wonderful garden and celebrated our 90 miles in 5 days achievement in proper style! Everyone was friendly and welcoming, including the cats and dogs...and the bedroom was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The bathroom was wonderful, lots of lovely lotions and potions and a good bath, very welcome after the long walk. Breakfast was also wonderful. The hosts also arranged for us to be picked up the next morning in good time to catch our train from Carlisle - thank you again."

"Super hospitality. Room gorgeous with very comfortable bed and a lovely big bath to soak in. I felt totally at home. Various items were available to buy which relieved the pressure of looking around for stuff. Breakfast was great we had locally sourced salami and cheese which made a contrast to the usual full English which was also aavailable and looked tasty. A lovely place to stop"

"“Deluxe Wigwams- fantastic site” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 12 September 2015 via mobile We enjoyed a lovely few days at Wallsend Wigwams. The wigwams are the best we have stayed in, and we have stayed in several different kinds now. Complete with a toilet, shower, small kitchen, dining table, sofa and tv, as well as a double bed - these wigwams have everything you need. The site is beautifully kept and clean, and the village of Bowness- On- Solway is gorgeous. The site owners are friendly and welcoming without being over-bearing. A beautiful part of the country that we have only just started to discover. We will be back."

" am not at all surprised that this venue has won so many awards for their breakfast experience as it was fabulous. We called in here for an impromptu late breakfast at 11am on my partners birthday and the staff were welcoming, helpful and accommodating. The cooked breakfast was hot and tasty, in fact, I would say that the 3 thick slices of bacon were the best I have ever tasted, without being salty, and the plateful we had was more than sufficient for our hungry selves. The waitress came and replenished the coffee and asked if she could get us anything else. The hotel seemed to be spotlessly clean and full of character,(watch out for the bat on the stairs) ;) I loved this place and look forward to going back on my 60th birthday for a repeat performance"

"“Fantastic!” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 weeks ago Cats, dogs and a very welcoming owner greeted my friend and me on our last night of Hadrian's Wall hiking (she may remember us as the two women who got completely distracted by the animals en route to showing us to our room). The home is beautifully restored, and sits at the edge of a very pretty village on a beautifully kept property. The room we were given had a bathtub (one of only two rooms with one), a very welcome feature, and we made good use of it. The beds were the most comfortable of our entire trip and I slept like a log. Breakfast was fantastic - we each had Eggs Hadrian. Delicious. Bowness is a lovely place and this was the perfect place to end our walk. Thank you so much, Lyn and Andy, for working so hard to make it so perfect. Your reputation precedes you for good reason! "

"“Brilliant end to our Hadrian's Wall experience.” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 10 August 2015 A lovely guest house, the room was clean comfortable - loved the settee - and the TV was the biggest we had ever seen in a hotel room - superb. Lyn welcomed us with tea and cakes and we felt 'at home.' Breakfast was super - loved the Hadrian's Muffin. Had a look around the Wigwam area which also looked good. It really was the best end we could have had to our 10 days of walking"

"“Perfect Glaming” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 August 2015 Booked this for a surprise for my partners birthday. Was a lovely get away, wasn't supposed to check in until 14:30 but got there early and was shown straight to our wigwam. They girl who gave us our key was very nice and friendly, our wigwam had everything we needed! Was a little hotel room it's was very clean and well presented! Very quiet field with only 4 other wigwams! 2 members of staff helped me when I had a flat tyre to change it. They mad a fuss over my dog. Very friendly gents! Would defiantly stay here again! Was a shame about the weather but it's England! Definitely recommend! Amazing if you not a huge fan of camping like me!"

"“Perfect End to a Hadrian's Walk” Could not have wished for a better ending to a 6 day walk the full length of Hadrian's Wall. The whole stay was just perfect from initial arrival to departure.

So comfortable plus tea and cake on arrival which we gratefully received. We had really been looking forward to a cream tea but arrived after the tea shop had closed but the toffee cake and lemon drizzle cake made up for this. The rooms were stunning with amazing bathrooms with bath. Foot cream, body lotion and conditioner provided with the normal shampoo and shower gel. Breakfast was lovely and there was a selection of souvenirs to mark completing the wall. Lovely dogs, one is a bit barky but not aggressive so nothing to worry about. 2 gorgeous cats as well.

"“Superb Guest House at the end of Hadrian's Wall Walk” We were provided with lovely tea and cake on arrival, very welcome after a long days walking. Our room couldn't be bettered with everything we needed or could want. After an excellent night's sleep the breakfast was brilliant in a very friendly atmosphere. "

"We stayed at Wallsend Guest House on Wednesday 20/05/2015, after a 5 day journey along Hadrian's Wall. What a wonderful welcome on our arrival, a splendid cream tea, our room was absolutely charming, had everything we could have wished for and then some. This was the perfect end to a 90 mile walk and I could not praise it more highly. The stars from Enjoy England should be Platinum, not Silver. There is no doubt that I will be revisiting this beautifully run establishment. The staff, owner Lyn, and of course the dogs and cats, were magnificent and there was only one other B&B that stood shoulder to shoulder with this one. Thank you for making our, all too brief, stay so memorable."
Miss Rebecca Earl, East Susses - May 2015
"“The perfect start to our Hadrians Wall walk” Myself and 3 of my friends stayed with Lyn at her guest house in 2 twin rooms the night before we set off to undertake the walk. The rooms are lovely, the property is ideally located near the pub and the start of the walk and Lyn's breakfasts are absolutely superb and the best start we could have in the morning. A friendly welcome and send off and looked after our bags awaiting bag transfer collection. This is the perfect place to stay for the start (or end) of the Hadrians Wall walk. Thanks Lyn "

"End of Hadrians Wall Walk” Absolutely lovely B&B & perfect for celebrating the end of our walking challenge. Arrived in time for tea & cake & then enjoyed a long soak in our bath (not all rooms have a bath) with foot balm supplied - very thoughtful touch. Amazing place "
