Beautiful location and wonderful service. Rooms are well furnished and of high standard. The friendly welcome we received after a tough days walking, was much appreciated. Smashing breakfast, good facilities - outstanding!

Like landing in heaven after a long days walk... A cool beer in the garden, beautiful room and a wonderful home cooked meal. All topped with a peaceful sleep in a good bed. The room was absolutely beautiful.

Stayed overnight during our Hardian's Wall hike in June 2014. GREAT accomodations and evening meal. A very high standard level of culinary expertise was easily recognizable and much appreciated. My daughter LOVED the atmosphere of room #3 as well.

In the light of the previous reviews (most of anyway) I hardly need to say how good this place is. Even for us as a family party breaking our journey from Inverness to Kent, and not as hardened walkers doing the wall, it is great. Must be heaven for wet walkers. Everything has been thought out from the guest perspective.... More

We were walking the Hadrian Wall and stayed at the Brookside, which is the best one we have stayed at so far. The meals were exquisite and the rooms were large and comfortable. After a few days on the trail, the laundry service they provide was a welcomed bonus! Lovely stay!!

Had a wonderful 2 night stay (with my dog) in this wonderful B&B. The room was spacious, a really comfortable bed and large shower with constant hot water, with lovely bathroom gels and lotions - even for tired feet! Denise is an excellent host and an amazing cook - the best lamb ever tasted. Highly recommended.

What a lovely B&B, what a nice host, what a wonderful room, bed & shower! One of the best B&Bs I've ever been too, the shower in our room probably UK's finest. The meal was tasty and our hosts were so kind as to take our postcards to the next post office.

Me and my boyfriend were looking for a few days away so decided to stay at a few places along the wall. Brookside Villa was by far the best, Denise and Gerry were extremely pleasant, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the food was delicious! There is a little pub in the village not too much of a walk away... More

I was one of the 6 walkers of the previous review and completely agree with Sandy. Great B&B, superb food and hospitality at a very good price. We wanted to leave at 7 am and Denise was up cooking breakfast for us so we could eat at 6:15am. That's looking after your guests! Thank you Denise and Gerry.
