  The Dorset Arms
by into-thin-air

For our last night we opted to stay in Wallsend rather than head back into Newcastle to celebrate successfully completing the walk
We chose to stay at another Pub, The Dorset Arms, This turned out to be yet another excellent choice !!
Two of us shared two en-suite rooms, The rooms were functional and simply furnished and we all thought the price of £29 per person was very reasonable.
We received a friendly welcome and took our evening meal in the bar which was tasty, Substantial and very reasonably priced.
The next morning we all went down for breakfast, a continental one was included in the price but the Landlord upgraded this to a Full English at No Extra Cost !!
Good transport links to Newcastle as the main coast road which has lots of busses is less than a 5 minute walk and the Finishing / Starting point of Hadrian’s Wall is less than a mile away, so about a 15 minute walk !!
Booking was simple and friendly, a £30 deposit sent off to secure our booking

I would give The Dorset Arms the Best of Recommendations for anyone seeking accommodation for either their First or Last day when walking Hadrian’s Wall
