A great place to stay. Elizabeth provided a very warm welcome and cup of tea after a long day's walk. She went out of her way to assist with information on the area and ideas. Her home is immaculate. The breakfast was substantial.

We very much enjoyed staying at Elizabeth's place. That was our last day on Hadrian's Wall Path, so we very appreciated that cottage is literally around the corner from the pub :) Elizabeth is a great host, it was a pleasure meeting her!

I live in a quiet village by the Solway estuary. I love the sense of space, the big skies, beautiful sunsets and the thousands of birds migrating to and from here throughout the year. I get to meet Hadrian's Wall walkers from around the world and I'm looking to become a host now that I have more time. I like to cook for my friends and I like to walk, especially on the Cumbrian fells. I am enjoying gardening and help promote rural theatre and music. I like to travel when I can, travelling alone always brings interesting chance encounters. I visit family in London and love the buzz of the city too but here is where my heart lies.
