Stayed here for 5 nights. The Bothy is ideally located for visting Hadrian's Wall and other Northumberland sights. Self-contained, with friendly hosts across the road and all Covid-19 precautions in place (but not obtrusive), it is very comfortable and feels safe.More

Wake up each morning to Fearga's fabulous breakfasts, and retire each evening in comfort, and the tranquillity of the wonderful Northumbrian countryside. Wonderful location to discover the history and culture of this ancient landscape. We will certainly return.
