Reviews - Abbey Bridge

4Visit England Assessed Bed and Breakfast Ratings explained
Abbey Bridge, Lanercost, , Brampton, CA8 2HG
If you are looking for a relaxed and friendly home at the end of a long day walking Hadrian’s Wall; want a rural retreat where you can take a deep breath and unwind following a day out exploring this quiet but fascinating part of the world or are travelling between Scotland and England and need somewhere to rest for the night then the Abbey Bridge, is the B&B for you. The Abbey Bridge was built in 1832 as a public house called the Black Bull, although there had been a hostelry on the site of what was an important crossing of the River Irthing for at least a couple of centuries beforehand. The building is Grade II listed and made from the local sandstone under a slate roof. The rooms are warm, well equipped and ensuite. The beds are comfortable and the nights so quite you may find it difficult to get up for breakfast. Breakfasts are leisurely and we serve locally produced product where possible with lots of choice for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. We serve evening meals by arrangement and have a licensed bar. Many of our guests are walking the Hadrian’s Wall long distance footpath, which is under a mile from Abbey Bridge. We have good clothes and boot drying facilities if the Cumbrian weather has been unfriendly.

Outstanding
This is one of the best B & Bs I have stayed in. I have no criticisms, only praise for everything. I would look forward to staying again.

A frendly overnight stay
We arrived weary from our 26 mile walk. To be welcomed into this clean and pleasant boarding house. (the photo's, good though they are, don't realy do the hotel interior justice. its far more comfortable than they present.) The room was quiet very clean and tidely furnished. The bath with loads of hot water was most welcome, and the bed was very comfortable. The hearty breakfast the next morning was at a communal table wich proved to be a great experiance. I was loathed to pull myself away from the lively conversation.
All told a great place to stay, I would happily recomend to anyone.

Peaceful, Quiet, and Delightful

Quirky
We stayed just one night whilst walking Hadrian's Wall. The room was comfortable and quiet. We ate at a nearby pub and then bought some wine from the Honesty Bar at the hotel.
The next morning we were startled to find not separate tables but one long refectory table. However we found the fellow guests interesting and friendly, so much so we left later than planned.We kept chatting and the toast and coffee kept coming!
A warm but unobtrusive welcome.

B&B with 5 star appraoch
From the warm welcome to fond farewell this was indeed a treat. No cutting corners here everything is done with the customer in mind and the bonus is that the B&B delivers on every front.
