Top class accommodation and first class evening meals and breakfast. Location ideal for walking Hadrian's Wall path. The evening meal was a highlight with a good choice on the menu. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful.

The villa, room, facilities and surroundings were fab and Denise is a wonderful cook. We stayed from Sunday to Thursday on the TWP which was well worth it. Denise & Gerry did everything they could to make our stay Memorable and we would defiantly recommend staying here

Denise is very welcoming when one arrives on Brookside's doorstep weary from a day of hiking. We agree with the many positive reviews posted on Trip Advisor. Also, she and Gerry have created an excellent website that gives complete and accurate information about Brookside that you will find helpful, including tips for helping less experienced hikers (or any hiker) enjoy...

Our Hadrian's Wall walk experience was greatly enhanced by the service we received at Brookside Villa.....TWP was excellent and it was so nice to come back to a lovely meal . I can't think of anything extra that could be added. A great experience.

Excellent accommodation, breakfast and evening dinners were supreme. Very peaceful and tranquil location, a very good spot to enjoy the surroundings and beautiful countryside. For those interested in life for Britain's during the Roman occupation, a visit to the Roman Army Museum and Vindolanda are a must see.

The proprietor of this wonderful establishment was surprised at our Canadian appetites but we found the food sooooo good, that we did not leave a morsel! We had reserved a full supper and it was the best meal we had on our Hadrian's Wall trek. As we were a group of 6, we very much enjoyed the garden to sit... More

A lovely comfortable B&B with stunning views. Clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Fabulous food, cooked to order - I had a vegetarian tagine for a change (I'm not veggie) and it was absolutely delicious. A good choice of wine/beer. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here as part of Hadrian's Wall walk and was delighted by the room, food and the warm welcome from Denise. The food was truly wonderful and far better than many hotels. There was a wide choice and a dedication to using local produce which is great. The dining room is lovely with lovely views, had fun watching the lambs... More

We had a warm welcome on our arrival and an equally warm room when we were shown up. The food was well cooked and tasty and the breakfast menu had a wide range of options. We would be very happy to stay there again.

While the exterior of the building is a little run-down and dishevelled looking, any further negative comments would be difficult to justify. We stayed one night on a quick detour to Hadrian's Wall from a longer trip to Scotland, and the location was ideal for this, giving great access within 15-20 minutes in both directions of some of the nicest...

Hi Dane, Thanks for your lovely, detailed review and your many positive comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Though the “House” would like a few words:- “Dishevelled! I’m 135 years old and don’t overwinter as graciously as I once did, but we’ve had a couple of fine, dry days since you visited and my carers have exfoliated... More
