Host had everything we needed, local information, walking information and even had foot blister packets. The only reason I didn't put it at 5 stars was I...

We stayed here for 3 nights - Grandma, Mum, and 7 year old. Felt very welcome, and loved the beautiful building, location, and our helpful hosts. Would definitely come again, it felt like home from home, and there is so much to see. We only managed to do some of the many sights along the wall, but they were really...

In my several days walking Hadrian's Wall, the one place I would really like to go back to some day is Tantallon House. Very accommodating hosts in a spotlessly clean, beautiful house in a very nice two-pub village. The B&B could not be more convenient for walking the wall.

They were helpful in providing information about the area including various itineraries and ideas about restaurants in the area. Our room was comfortable and attractive, and the common...

We had a wonderful four day stay at Tantallon House. Our room was spacious and comfortable and breakfast was delicious. We had never been to Hadrian's Wall before and Roger, with unfailing good natured patience, helped us plan walks and places to visit. He also invariably met us with a very welcome cup of tea when we returned! We walked...

We were a party of four staying at the lovely Tantallon House earlier this month. A super weekend as our hosts were friendly and welcoming; very comfortable rooms; lovely breakfasts and Roger's knowledge of the surrounding area ensured that we got the very best out of our stay. We will return! Morag R

My son, daughter-in-law and I stayed at Tantallon House in September. From the welcoming cup of tea and tarts to the hot-water bottle in the bedroom, to the excellent breakfast, everything was provided to make our stay a pleasant and memorable one. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable hosts.

A very welcome stop on our traverse of The Hadrian's Walk Path. Tea and cake on arrival. Lovely comfortable bed. And the breakfast!!! Roger was almost too cheerful the next morning. It was infectious. His mood and a great breakfast that kept us going for 22 miles until our next stop.
