Elaine was a friendly welcoming host and everything you read on the website is correct, as you would hope, but importantly, nothing negative is omitted from the website. I don't think they do dinner, but it is available in the local village, five minutes drive away, or quite a walk along a dark country road. Breakfast is great. The beds... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our very recent stay; the two nights at this lovely B&B went in a flash ! the views were beautiful, and this is such a good location for visiting Vindolanda, and other attractions. No insomnia in the superbly comfortable beds, I fell asleep without delay .... We had never seen such plentiful supplies on the hospitality trays,... More

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights as part of a 2 week holiday travelling around parts of Britain. Comparing it on all levels with the 5 other accommodations that we stayed in, it came out TOP! It's positioning was great, being near to The Wall, but being in a beautifully quiet road with wonderful views. It was also... More

The Hill on the Wall is one of those places that I don't like to talk about or tell people about, not because it's bad but because it's too good. I worry that if I go telling everyone about how wonderful a place it is, next time I want to stop there it will be fully booked. That said, our... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the Caligua room - named in honour of the Roman ruins nearby - the room was at the front of the house and had fabulous views out over the valley. You can see parts of Hadrians wall from here. Very quiet location. Everything in the rooms - that is tea, coffee, bathroom supplies... More

A warm welcome in a beautifull B&B. Everything well taken care of. Bathroom looks like a welness center.This is exactly where you want to end up after a long day walk. Dinner at the oraganic farm (tip: make a reservation). Wonderful breakfast at 8.30 with the other international guests.

Thank you Elaine for a lovely stay - we enjoyed everything about the Hill on the Wall. Elaine, with the help of Ian, are extremely welcoming hosts - nothing seems to be too much trouble. Elaine has put much thought into the service she provides, I have never seen so much choice of drinks in a room! The tea and... More

When I needed to find accommodation to take part in a Macmillan Trekathlon near the finishing line at Lanercost Priory I used Trip Advisor. This B&B came up with only 5 & 4 reviews. Having stayed 5 days I can confirm that original search is well deserved and I am surprised by recent bad reviews and on meeting Ian &... More
