Re: Travel plans - Cumbria - Northumberland - Eden Valley - Lakes - Hadrians Wall
Yes you must go to Vindolanda - it is many years since I last visited and I must go again. It was absolutely fascinating. Birdoswald is nearby and well worth a couple of hours.
For Hadrians Wall and the surrounding area the distances are such that a central base in one of the market towns puts everywhere within rather less than an hour's drive. I am thinking of Hexham, Haltwhistle, somewhere like that. I don't know anywhere B&B or hotel as I was working in Newcastle and took advantage of a couple of days off!
The town of Penrith is well placed for the Lake District and just about everywhere else.
