Guest Review

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay at Vallum Lodge.  You, your family, and staff were most kind and accommodating to us.  Our room was clean and comfortable and had the best beds on the walk!  We might also add we enjoyed that little bottle of wine we found in the cooler each night!  We loved the laundry service, of which you were the only B&B that offered that!  We can't even tell you how wonderful that was after all that rain and mud!  Your welcoming lounge area really encouraged the guests to talk with one another and we met and talked with so many interesting people during our stay.
But, most especially, We appreciate your commitment to taking Diana into the local town to see the doctor and have her feet examined.  It was so kind of you to do that.  We know that wasn't in your plans, but your kind words and quick action made a worrisome situation better.  It's those little things that really define what is different from one place to another.  You truly run a fine establishment and we'd be happy to recommend it to anyone traveling to the Hadrian's Wall Country.

Thank you again for your kindness.

Guest Review on Hadrian's Wall

We really enjoyed the walk along the wall.  It was fairly tough going due to the weather and ground conditions being so saturated, but it was truly amazing.

Although difficult with a heavy backpack, the walk “up top” was the highlight. For me, walking with the unbroken stretches of wall was the most spectacular.  This for me was the most rural and unspoiled part of the walk, and I particularly enjoyed our picnic perched upon Highshield Crags. You really are the only people in the whole world up there, and the air could not be fresher. 

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you, and we really enjoyed the walk. It was fairly tough going due to the weather and ground conditions being so saturated, but it was truly amazing.

The leaves are returning to the trees and the blue bells are starting to come out.

The evenings are stretching out too, so it's great for getting out and taking advantage of being able to go on longer walks or even just to enjoy the fabulous Northumberland sunsets. 
With May now here (often one of the best months weather wise) we've got lots to look forward to.

Happy Easter

Yes its Easter time, the new baby lambs are being born and the daffodils are popping up every where.  Spring is a time of year that I love, I just wish the sun was shining!!

Winter is back!!

Yes its winter again, one day its sunny weather and the next its back to winter.  The snow is falling but I don't think its going to stay for long - or should I say I hope its not.

We have a group of walkers in today and I must say I did feel very sorry for them when they arrived.  They were so wet you could ring out their clothes.   After a hot bubble bath they were happy again and ready to go to the pub for their evening meal.  Lets hope its better weather tomorrow.

Spring Time at last

Its my favourite time of year - Spring.  The lambs are just starting to be born, the daffodils are popping up every where and the weather is fantastic!!  We have had sun for days now and at last the ground is dry - perfect walking conditions.
