Introduction

We know what people want when they look for a relaxing break, and we think we can satisfy your taste completely.

In this tranquil, rural setting on the southern tip of the Northumberland National Park, it's less than two miles from the line of the central section of Hadrian's Wall.
Built in local stone with a pitch slate roof, it offers well-equipped accommodation with a great deal of character.

Following a good night's sleep in a comfortable room, a good hearty breakfast in our pleasant dining room provides the perfect start to the day.

The evening approaches, why not round off the day in the cosy bar with a game of pool or perhaps a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire.

Activities in the area, things to do
and experiences all around us

Hadrian Lodge is surrounded by places of historic interest. Perched high on a crag for almost two thousand years, Housesteads Roman Fort (four miles) was once garrisoned by over a thousand soldiers.

Nearby Vindolanda (three miles) has a reconstructed section of Roman Wall. The superbly preserved Vindolanda tablets discovered here were voted one of Britain's greatest National Treasure in a BBC poll. The on-site museum displays many of these remarkable artefacts and other interesting finds.

During the Middle Ages this part of Northumberland was infamous for being beyond the control of either crown. It was controlled by warring families of brigands and outlaws. The antics of these Border Reivers or "Moss Troopers" as they were also known led to the fortification of many buildings which bear testament to this turbulent past.

What our guests say:

It's a nightmare trying to find any hotel that can fit a young family of five into one room. It's always a pain having to split over two rooms when the kids are so young.

In any case Hadrian Lodge could accommodate us in one room for our overnight.

The location is stunning and surrounded by fields and lovely views.
