One of the best B&B's on the wall!! Beautifully clean house, with a new bright and airy dining room. We had a lovely evening meal with a bottle of wine (not overly priced) and a very good quality breakfast. Bedroom was a little on the small side but we were only there for one night. We found Denise to be... More

Touring along Hadrian's Wall, Brookside was a perfect stopping point. a nice setting, spacious room, assistance with an overseas emergency phone call, advice on our next day's journey, an excellent full breakfast, and to top it off we were able to eat (an excellent) dinner there also.

We just wanted to thank you for our recent stay at Brookside Villa. You have certainly earned your 'Walkers Welcome' award. We arrived very wet and tired having walked 20 miles, the latter part in pouring rain. We appreciated the warm welcome and encouragement to come in and take our wet things off, rather than do that on the doorstep... More

Arrived after a hard days walk and appreciated the range of drinks on offer. Were presented with a series of tick sheets where we were to select dinner, breakfast and packed lunch options. Filled these in and submitted them to Denise who proceeded with the catering which was all very tasty. The rooms were well appointed and the shower was... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review. We use selection menus for breakfast and packed lunches so that you can choose exactly what you want, which most of guests prefer to being served, as one guest put it "what the other B&Bs want to give us, rather than what WE want!" I don't have the same process for dinner... More

This is a wonderful B&B, everything is of a far higher standard than most hotels I've stayed in! Denise has a real eye for detail, the decor is attractive, the rooms comfortable, the plumbing efficient and the welcome warm. In addition, lots of little extras are available to make your stay truly comfortable. As an added bonus, Denise is an... More

We arrived soaked, and Denise handled all the arrangements perfectly. Our room was at the top of the house - getting a big case up was a touch tricky - and was extremely comfortable and pleasant. Great for a couple. Our daughter's room on the floor below was also very comfortable. The sitting room with honesty bar was very pleasant,... More

After a very wet and long walk along the mid-section of Hadrian's Wall, this B&B welcomed two bedraggled and exhausted sisters with open arms. Our wet clothes were whisked away to be dried. Newspaper was provided to stuff our sodden boots and a bowl of salt water and packets of compeed provided for our blistered feet. The well-stocked honesty bar... More

You are very welcome - as walkers ourselves, we do understand what you need at the end of a long, wet day - and a hot, dry day too! Glad we were able to turn it around for you and that your next day's walk was a little more comfortable. Thanks and best wishes to you both Denise and Gerry More

Not much to add to the positive comments. Lovely room no 3 at the top of the house is recommended as a double. House very clean and well maintained with a lovely garden. Parking is a bit tight but ok. Food excellent, more like good home cooking than flashy restaurant. Lamb is recommended. Breakfasts also good. Denise is an attentive... More

Thanks for tasking the time to review Simon. And sorry about your umbrellas! Wondered who had left them in the hall. They'll hopefully still be here should you return - or I can post them back if you'd like? Had no use for them until yesterday, as sunny weather returned. Best wishes. Denise and Gerry More

I cannot fault this place. The lady is very nice and runs everything like a military operation. Precise spotlessly clean. Nice firm beds and the breakfasts are excellent (all local produce - which was a bonus) I can recommend the sausages. We stayed here for two nights on our way back to London after 2 weeks in Scotland. Thank you... More
