We were made to feel very welcome by Elaine at the Hill on the Wall. The attention to detail in our room was amazing, tea, coffee, chocolate, DVD player and library. The bathroom was also filled with extra touches. Beds and bedding were luxurious and comfortable. Views are beautiful , we sat out the front having a drink in the... More

Elaine was a wonderful host. The twin room we had was huge with a fantastic view of the wall; I have never seen such a large selection of tea/coffee etc in a room, anywhere in the world. Breakfast was magnificent. I would highly recommend this place - it's a hidden gem.

Very nice and clean B&B near the Hadrian Wall. Proper breakfast, friendly service, perfect ambience. The house is located on the countryside but the lady of the house will bring you to the restaurant in the evening.

We may have just showed up the month that Elaine had decided to return to baking and the weather was grand for the patio.....boy were we lucky. Then Ian recommended a wonderful (and only) place in Gilsland to have dinner. If you are looking for an English Manor adventure you had best plan to book here.

I have stayed in many hotels and lodges in my life, but this really was superb. We were lucky to have Caligula's chamber with a king-size bed, thoughtfully furnished and decorated and with a magnificent view on the Hadrian wall from our bedroom. The owners were very friendly, welcoming us with tea and beers. and serving an excellent breakfast. Moreover,... More

The house is a fortified farmhouse, and definitely a nice experience, tastefully furnished surrounded with a garden and a calming view. We were served tea and scones when we arrived. Lovet it! The breakfast was the best we had during our walk (seven days). Delightful and plenty; bread, smoked salmon and fruit (among others). A very nice chef. The owner... More

We were a group of cyclists, making our way through England coast-to-coast and we booked rooms from this small but cozy guest house. The rooms were very romantic and old English style. Prices were reasonable and breakfast was marvelous (English breakfast, at it's best). We were able to recover perfectly from our previous days' exercise and continued our trip well... More

After a long day walking on the Pennine Way it was with a welcome feeling that we arrived at The Hill and the Wall, greeted by tea and cake. The accommodation was very spacious with a private bathroom, with full length bath and separate shower, flat screen TV and the amenities that you would normally find in a top class... More

What can I say, but this is a top class bed and breakfast. We stayed at a few during our 84 mile hike of the Hadrians Wall Path. Extremely clean; with large luxurious, comfortable and homely rooms; excellent breakfast and packed lunch. The house is in lovely setting, overlooking a valley. I was very fortunate to have an excellent view... More

This is a very charming place to stay with clean, comfortable and well appointed rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast is excellent, with an extensive choice and is served by friendly and professional staff. Well located, especially for Hadrian's Wall, it has beautiful views and an excellent lounge.
