Explore Hadrians Wall

The AD122 bus stops just 200m from the farm and runs to all the major Roman attractions in the summer months.

Slack House Farm is a bunkhouse and working cheese making farm on Hadrian’s Wall, close to the Pennine Way. So clearly its a great place to explore the Roman Heritage of the area and to walk in the stunning landscape. Rather wonderfully, the AD122 bus (stops just 200m from hostel) runs to all the major Roman attractions in the summer months. The year 122 AD marked the garrisoning of the nearby Vindolanda fort and the  start of construction on the wall. If you’re more active than that then the Hadrian’s Cycleway  can lead you over 174 miles of wonderful northern scenery,  although it is not a matter of historical record whether the Emperor ever used either a bike or a bus.
