Spent one night at this B and B. I loved it. Very friendly reception. I'm a solo traveller and was able to enjoy company of other folk staying there at tea time and breakfast. Lovely bedroom; the owners had thought about many pleasant details such as a good selection of beverages. Toiletries were also available - a range I would... More

Recently stayed overnight at Hill on the Wall for the third time. Elain and Ian were as charming and hospitable as ever. It was my birthday weekend and they recognised this so kindly, including singing happy birthday and a candle in my baked tomato at breakfast time! Tea and cake on arrival, a warm and very comfortable room, shower big... More

What a wonderful relaxing stay at this lovely b and b! We came a couple of years ago and had many lovely memories of our stay, the warm welcome, great Northumberland breakfasts and afternoon tea with home made cakes by Elaine that we decided to bring our two grown up children with us on our second visit this time around!...

Everything the other 5 star reviews say is totally true. Wonderful reception on our arrival, tea and cake in very the very comfortable Long Room in front of a wood burner. The variety and quality of items provided in the bedroom and bathroom would put places costing twice as much to shame. Really relaxing and highly recommended. I'm a veggie... More

We stayed here for one night while driving home from Scotland and chose it on the basis of excellent Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. This is an outstanding place to stay. The location gives staggering views of lush hills with Hadrian's Wall on the skyline. The accommodation and decor is old English country house but all done with modern... More

My husband and I stayed in Caligulara's Chamber for seven nights early in September. We were not disappointed - think "Country Life" in Cumbria/Northumberland. On arrival we were shown to The Long Room where we took our seats beside the log stove and enjoyed tea and cake (a variety of cakes being served each day on our return). Our large... More

After a beautiful day of walking along the wall, my friend and I arrived at our B & B for the night, a beautiful period house. We were welcomed with a delicious chocolate cake and a great cup of tea. We had a nice chat with our hostess. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The ensuite bathroom had supplies... More

We drove up the wooded drive with some trepidation wondering what we had come to in this out of the way place. We were welcomed with a pot of tea and slices of cake while sitting on the terrace with a superb view. What I thought was a lovely Georgian house turned out to be considerably older with an interesting... More
