Hadrian’s Wall Path Accommodation and Services
RambleFest displays details of Hadrian’s Wall Path accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, guidebooks and maps, and public transport. We also include a website and Ordnance Survey map link for each service along the route for which we have details.
The Hadrian’s Wall Path is an 83-mile walk (the actual mileage differs slightly, according to the guidebook used) from Wallsend to Bowness On Solway, keeping as close as possible to Hadrian’s Wall. The path is beautifully rugged, although really never far from villages or farmhouse accommodation. It coincides with the Pennine Way and Pennine Journey for a few miles, and also connects with the Cumbria Way at Carlisle.
“Hadrian’s Wall Path runs for 86 miles (138 km) between Bowness-on-Solway and Wallsend (Newcastle) along the line of the Roman Wall completed in AD122 under the Emperor Hadrian. This National Trail crosses northern England from Irish Sea to North Sea and offers many chances to look at the forts, milecastles and interpretation centres within this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The route is clearly waymarked and well supported by public transport, giving flexibility to walk it in linear sections or as loop walks.”

Notes on Hadrian’s Wall Path Accommodation
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Hadrian’s Wall Path accommodation recommendations.
Hadrian’s Wall Path Restaurants and Pubs
Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Hadrian’s Wall Path, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. Please refer to our Hadrian’s Wall Path Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table below.
Restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
