Most of the terrain is relatively easy, the 23-mile central section between Chollerford and Birdoswald is hilly with sharp climbs and descents.  Slack House Farm and Greenhead Hostel provide accommodation in this section.  Slake House Farm is just a field away from the Birdoswald Roman Fort and Greenhead Hostel is opposite the Greenhead Inn in the village of Greenhead.  Finding your way along the Hadrians Wall Path is easy; you can will find plenty of acorn symbols and way marking arrows.  Hostels and bunkhouses along the route provide good value self catering accommodation catering specifically for walkers on the trail.
