Elaine was a great host. We stayed here while walking Hadrians Wall. On arrival she greated us with tea and cake in front of a warm fire. Her house is beautiful, the rooms very comfortable and the breakfast was faultless. We considered abandoning our Hadrians Wall Walk and moving in permanently.

We stayed here during an extremely cold few days at the end of March. Whatever the weather lacked was more than made up for in the warmth of the welcome that we received from Elaine and Ian. Our bedroom was very comfortable and warm: we had a lovely view overlooking the valley. Breakfast was outstanding with plenty of choice of... More

We spent an autumn weekend at this top notch bed and breakfast. We came to spend some time on Hadrian's wall and this accomodation is perfeclty placed for this. We stayed in the Caligula room. The bathroom was out of this world and very well stocked. Breakfast, cooked by Elaine and served by a warm and friendly Ian was hot,... More

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
