About us

Beggar Bog is a simple, cosy bed and breakfast set amidst the spectacular countryside of the national park and the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall.

Situated next to Housesteads Roman fort, we provides an ideal stop for those walking along the Hadrian's Wall trail. However, it also offers a great place from which to explore a remarkable countryside rich in beauty, wilderness and history.

Take a look at my photography page to see what’s on our doorstep. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Alternatively, please follow the link to check on availability and book on-line.

We look forward to seeing you.


Set away from the main house, our accommodation is located in a private, self-contained annexe. Once stabling for horses, it now provides two cosy bedrooms for our guests. We have one twin room and one double room, both of which are tastefully furnished and have en-suite facilities.

Breakfast is normally served between 8.00am and 9.00am in the kitchen in the main house. In the mornings we offer a traditional cooked breakfast, along with cereals, fruit and a range of drinks. With all our food at Beggar Bog, we try to shop both locally: all our meats will be supplied by our local butcher and whenever possible other ingredients will be locally sourced and sensibly produced.

We also realise that sometimes a traditional breakfast may be too much so we are more than happy to make scrambled eggs, porridge or a fruit salad, you just have to let us know the night before.

Find us

Beggar Bog is 200 metres east of the car park for Housesteads Roman fort on the B6318 (the Military Road). If you are following the Hadrian's wall trail on foot, follow the path south from the fort down to the car park to get to reach the B6318. Please take care when walking along this final short stretch of road.

You can get comprehensive directions from AA route planner or find our exact location here on Google maps.

In the summer months, the AD 122 bus service runs from both Carlisle and Newcastle, stopping conveniently at Housesteads car park.

We do not advertise on the road so there is no bed-and-breakfast sign outside our house.
