As the tail end of hurricane Bertha swept across Cumbria so the heavens opened and two drowned rats were washed onto the door-step of Brookside Villa. Literally drenched from head to foot and with water coming out of our lace holes we were worried what sort of reception we might get. Needless to say Denise was welcoming, pragmatic and warm...

Oh yes, I remember that day - truly epic weather. A walk to tell your grandchildren about! As you say, helping you deal with all that stuff, and getting you warm, dry, comfy and well-fed as efficiently as possible is what we are designed to do. I'm delighted all our processes worked for you. And thanks so much for taking... More

Brookside Villa was definitely our favourite of all the B&B's we stayed at on our walking holiday along Hadrian's Wall. Denise made us feel right at home, our room was absolutely beautiful and the dinner was the best we've eaten on our trip as well (I had the fish pie -scrumptious- and he had the pasta and cheese plate for...

I've just stayed at Brookside Villa with my partner and two dogs and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was warm, comfortable, clean and bright with beautiful views. I found both Denise and her partner very welcoming, there was plenty of information provided on arrival and there was an option of ringing a bell in the hall for assistance if... More

My sister and I had a very comfortable overnight stay, and were made very welcome. The bedroom was warm and offered everything we needed and more - nice touches included lotions for tired feet and slippers! Excellent evening meal and breakfast. We would recommend it and will certainly visit again if we are in the vicinity.

We arrived here a bit late, sodden and bedraggled after a very long wet day walking the wall. Denise could not have been more welcoming even though she was in the middle of preparing dinner. We gave our dinner orders in the hallway while she was trying to sort out where to put our wet clothes and boots. Very good... More

thanks so much for taking the time to review - especially after a gap of 3 months! I am sorry that I don't recall you personally (!) but I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Our rooms are of differing sizes (fairly common in converted Victorian houses), though even the smaller of our rooms has a comfortable king-size bed... More

From our warm welcome to an equally warm farewell we enjoyed every minute of our stay at Brookside Villa. Denise was a great hostess and her food superb. We wanted for nothing and appreciated all the thoughtful extras: lotion for those tired feet (we were walking Hadrian's Wall Path), books to read, information on the area, washing dried for us....

After a long walking day, it was just so nice to get to stay at such a lovely place with lovely atmosphere. The place made us feel welcoming as well as the owner. We stayed on the attic room which is decorated nicely and well equipped. The meals were just besutiful. We were sad to leave.

We spent 2 nights at Brookside as part of a journey along Hadrian's Wall using buses and walking. Denise gave us a warm welcome and helped us several times with transport (local buses now being a rare thing). The bedroom was large and well equipped and the bed very comfortable. Breakfasts were very well presented and tasty; the honesty bar... More
