Great accomodation; warm welcoming host. We have stayed for 2 nights; our room was generously spacious with a very comfortable bed and a spotlessly clean en suite. Every little detail was considered and provided such as dressing gowns, fluffy white towels, slippers, several types of hot drinks and cookies to nibble (even a wide selection of DVD's!) Our room had... More

A very warm welcome received on arrival.The room provided was fine but at the back of the house so the view was disappointing as the main house itself has a superb location overlooking as it does Hadrians Wall. Apart from that very comfortable accomodation provided and also a really good breakfast.

It really does feel as though you are staying in a friend's home. It is a lovely house which is decorated and maintained with great care yet feels relaxed and peaceful. It is beautifully furnished, immaculately clean and the bedroom was well-stocked with all kinds of different teas,biscuits etc. Breakfast was lavish and delicious and served in an elegant dining...

Calling the Hill on the Wall unique doesn't come close. It is superb in every respect. Superb views, superb beds, superb breakfast and above all a superb host. The welcome from Elaine felt like seeing friends or family. Tea after coming back in the evening from a walk went well beyond her call of duty. We stayed for three nights... More

The service was excellent and you feel like you're staying with your family it's such a home-like feel. Views are incredible as well as the service, beds, restrooms; the list goes on and on. Run by the sweetest woman, hopefully back sooner rather then later!!

I booked the room with Elaine with not much notice and arrived shattered after 23 miles walking. The room was excellent and the complimentary Terry's chocolate orange manner from heaven. The kicker is the 0.9 mile walk from the local pub though I was offered a lift. Breakfast was fantastic with the best sausages of the week as well as... More

Absolutely fantastic. The most supportive hosts, bedrooms extremely well equipped with many extras. Bathroom fabulous. Breakfast amazing. Good food, good company and an excellent stay and the bonus of a short walk from Hadrians wall.

I was travelling by myself to do a charity trek in memory of my mother. I was greeted with a cup of tea and a slice of home made cake. The room was extremely comfortable and had a great selection of tea and spare toiletries. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was nice to hear the sound of bleating... More

We were greeted with tea and cream cakes which was extremely welcoming! Our room was wonderful with great views from the front of the house. The facilities, toiletries, refreshments, etc. were all of the highest quality and every taste was catered for. A well cooked breakfast set us up for another day's walking although we were loathe to leave the... More

My father & I spent 2 nights here either side of a charity walk and it was wonderful! First off, the view from the front of the house is exceptional, it looks straight at the Hadrian Wall line & across the Cumbrian countryside. The rooms were cosy and equipped with everything you could need; several types of tea and coffee... More
