Great place in lovely setting.
This is a great place in a pleasant village, nice spacious room, with plenty free street parking. Decent free wifi and good local amenities, nice greeting by one of the owners, Brian, who offered the facilities of the kitchen at my disposal, very much appreciated. If i was going to be picky, the numerous spiders in the hallway could be cleared out (i have a phobia) and the towels in the shower would benefit from being bigger and softer, you can make tea/coffee in your room but had to go downstairs to the kitchen fridge for the milk, but these are small things that wouldnt stop me from staying again.

Homely, and nice owner. But the room/house is too closed to the main road.

Great welcome, great location, clean rooms and kitchen/dining area. Good food recommendation for the pub opposite. Just be aware that there are limited food options in town on a Wednesday evening (although the fish and chips were great), if you want something more you'll have to travel.

Friendly welcome and great location.
The Reading Rooms are a great base for any visit to this part of England. We have used them for easy access to the Hadrian’s Wall forts but our favourite is to walk the 5 minutes to the railway station in Haydon Bridge and jump on a train into Hexham (10 mins). Haydon Bridge is a lovely, friendly small town on the banks of the South Tyne. Brian (the host) always gives visitors a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble in helping to make the stay enjoyable. We enjoy the freedom that the Reading Rooms give in that it is a relatively small B&B and that the kitchen and dining room are always available to visitors. The use of allocated space in the fridge is also a bonus for us as we love taking picnics out with us and we’re able to store our groceries for the weekend (and keep the wine chilled!). This was our second visit to the Reading Rooms and we will certainly be back again in the not too distant future.

Excellent room, very clean and tidy, the host is a fellow biker so lots to talk about. It is a very friendly place and nothing is too much trouble. Definitely recommend this place, easy to find and a great area. Had a good stay, many thanks.

Hadrian's wall walk
The room was clean and modern. It was very quiet at night. If you're walking Hadrian's wall, a stay here comes with some thoughtful touches. They have a drying closet with a radiator inside for wet clothes and boots, additionally, the room I stayed in had a boot tray. Brian is a very gracious host.

Spacious comfortable rooms with everything you may need for an overnight stay. Owner was super helpful with bike storage and his explanations of the property and facilities were short and to the point. Common area had basic breakfast items which were more then enough to see you through to lunchtime. Also an extensive library of all things Hadrian's Wall related. No hesitation in recommending.
