We received a warm welcome with tea and cake and enjoyed chatting with Elaine. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding: fresh fruits, crispy bacon and perfectly cooked eggs. We had a very pleasant stay in this B&B!

Received a real welcome with tea or coffee and gorgeous strawberry and cream cakes which we enjoyed whilst sitting in the lovely 'Long Room', complete with a huge array of books for guests to read. Our room, 'Hadrian's Retreat', was very spacious and comfortable with superb views of the garden and countryside and our private bathroom, just across the corridor,... More

We received a very warm welcome at this lovely old house, with delicious tea and chocolate cake. Our room was extremely comfortable, and so well equipped - we wanted for absolutely nothing. I see I was not the only one to photograph the bathroom cabinet - it was better stocked than ours at home! A very peaceful night's rest, and... More

I stayed there while walking the wall. What an amazing reception given by the team there, great rooms, breakfast and a treat of afternoon tea and cake after the days walking. Could not recommend it enough.

We stayed here for three nights in ‘Caligula’s room’ which is en suite. The views from the room were superb, the room was pristine and the en suite was stocked with every toiletry you could wish for. The bedding was good quality and the décor tasteful. The room was well serviced and cleaned throughout our short stay. The breakfast was... More

The house is beautifully located overlooking rolling hills and Hadrian's Wall. The house itself is old but well kept and very interesting. It has a lovely sitting room with a well stocked and relevant library [for Hadrian's Wall and the Lake district and more]. Our bedroom/sitting room [Caligula's Chamber!] was beautifully furnished and very comfortable and the bathroom was first... More

A medieval house with modern amenities. I wish we could've stayed at The Hill on the Wall for our entire visit to the UK. While other accommodations were lovely, non compared to this one. Elaine, the owner, was warm and attentive to all of hers guests and left "no stone unturned" when it came to comfort, and ways that met... More

We stayed here just for one night as booked by our travel agents and what a lovely surprise. We were greeted with tea / coffee and cream cakes in the beautiful lounge and shown to our rooms which were a joy. Breakfast was served around a communal table which enabled us to meet the other guests and was delicious. The... More

Stayed here in early May 2014 as 1st night stop over walking Hadrian's wall, Carlisle to Newcastle. Furnishings 1st class; most comfortable bed; brilliant breakfast; cosy log burner in living room and a return ride to the pub. Elaine has the most wonderful property and was so hospitable, I can't recommend this B&B enough. Will definitely return.
