The Greenhead Hotel Information


We can cater for your needs, enjoy your perfect breakfast and an evening meals in the hotel restaurant accompanied with a drink in our friendly and homely bar or enjoy an evening out at an event in the hotel function room, we will make you feel at home every time you stay. Surrounded near Hadrians wall The Greenhead Hotel is at the gates of your Roman experience and the site of the former Magnae Carvetiorum fort, which pre-dates the building of the Wall. Indeed, some say this is where Emperor Hadrian first stopped for a cup of tea and to survey the area. It is also said he was so impressed that he decided to keep it for himself and so built the Wall to keep everyone else out. Seriously though, we are located a few hundred paces from the Wall and the nearby Roman Army Museum at Carvoran. The Military Road goes passed the front door to give easy access to other wonderful sites such as Vindolanda, Housesteads and The Sill. This is a fabulous area and we are on c2c Route 72, one of the most popular cycle trails in the country. Equally, this is a superb base for a wide variety of stunning walks – the famous Pennine Way goes through the village. At the Greenhead, we embrace the traditions of the English village inn. A genuine warm welcome, good food, craft ales and a very comfortable bed for the night. We have four well-appointed ensuite bedrooms within the hotel and across the road; the Bunk House sleeps up to forty guests – popular with walkers and cyclists alike. Pop in for a cup of tea and a snack, or a meal with a pint or glass of wine
