Abbey Bridge

Unwind after a day of exploration and adventure…

Nestled within the Cumbrian countryside and very close to the historic Hadrian’s wall makes this Wolsey Lodge an ideal location for walkers, hikers and those wishing to break-up a north/south journey. Thoughtful extras like a boot room for walkers, laundry and ironing facilities, the lounge where guests can rest and mingle, an honesty bar, and the availability of delicious home-cooked dinners or packed lunches (all by prior arrangement) are typical of the warm hospitality found at this luxury bed and breakfast.

This Grade II listed Wolsey Lodge used to be a former public house. The original part of the property is late Georgian with stone flagged entrance hall, exposed beams and quirky features reflect its fascinating history with old maps, photos, and documents adorning the walls.


Comfortable, well-appointed bedrooms all named after local castles, some in the adjacent Blacksmith’s Cottage, are individually decorated, have en-suite facilities and interesting details such as wooden, upholstered headboards, crafted nearby.

Freshly cooked breakfasts are generous and include locally produced bacon, Cumberland sausage, free-range eggs or popular vegetarian alternatives like Craster kippers or ‘Heuvos Rancheros’, served in a relaxed convivial atmosphere.

Your B&B Hosts

Prior to opening Abbey Bridge, Tim was a merchant naval officer, company director and management consultant. Former head teacher and computer analyst Sue lived in France till her early 20's, and now they both concentrate on running their B&B and enjoy looking after their granddaughters. Their enjoyment in sharing their home with guests is evident in their stellar reputation.


With a wealth of circular walks, the magnificent Hadrian’s Wall and Lanercost Priory just a stone’s throw away, this area is steeped in history and surrounded by spectacular scenery. Explore castles, cathedrals, the Roman Army Museum, steam railways and National Parks or just surround yourself in peace, tranquility and enjoy the fresh air and clear skies.
