An ideal location for bed and breakfast on Hadrian’s Wall, Holmhead Guest House sits in a beautifully quiet location in a sheltered valley next to the Tipalt Burn and beneath the ruins of Thirlwall Castle. Built in 1800 with Wall stone, the house is bordered by open fields and has stunning views south towards the North Pennines, whilst to the north lies the Northumberland National Park and Thirlwall Castle. Holmhead is built over the foundations of Hadrian’s Wall and is directly on the Pennine Way and Hadrian’s Wall National Trails.
All rooms have great views and have ensuite shower and wc plus tea and coffee-making facilities. We have a number of room options available – single, standard double (with ensuite wet-room), superking double (with ensuite shower) or twin single beds (with ensuite shower). The Guest accommodation is entirely self-contaiined and has its own private entrance.
Our breakfasts are delicious and generous and use local produce wherever possible, including free-range eggs, Northumberland sausage and bacon. We can accommodate most special diets.
There is a large guest lounge with Freesat TV and DVD, bookshelves and games and complimentary wi-fi.
Our location, directly on The Hadrian’s Wall Path and Pennine way make us an ideal stop-off for walkers, and we’re only 250m off the Hadrian’s Wall Cycle Trail. For evening meals, there’s a local pub which is a pleasant half-mile stroll away and serves great food and real ales.
