A night in Greenhead will be added to your itinerary
Holmhead Guest House is at the end of a quiet valley with stunning views of The Northumberland National Park and The Pennines ANOB. The guest house is directly on The Pennine Way, Hadrian's Wall Path and The Pennine Journey and is only a short pleasant stroll from Greenhead where the local pub and tea room provide good food. All rooms are en suite and we provide a good hearty breakfast using locally-sourced produce where possible.

The house has been restored to retain as many features of the original property as possible. The en suite bedrooms in the former hayloft barn are comfortably furnished and have open beamed ceilings. There are other bedrooms with access to separate bath and shower rooms which are available to any guest. And all rooms have a colour television, a hair dryer and hot drink making facilities. Pets are not allowed in the rooms.
On the ground floor is the dining room, off which is the ‘quiet’ lounge where you can curl up in front of the fire with a good book. If you prefer you can unwind in the peace and quiet of the delightful conservatory where you can rest, watch the birds, take in the views, have a drink and see the sun go down from the comfort of an easy chair.
Collection from the Pennine Way available.
