This was our second visit to Brookside Villa and it won't be our last, we love it! My boyfriend and I went last year for my birthday and returned again this year with 2 friends. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Denise could not be more accommodating, she is a really lovely lady. The food is gorgeous, it is... More

Great B & B, whisky with our porridge!! Great way to start the day. Didn't have to walk far for a drink after a long hard day which was great. Over and beyond the call of duty driving us to Carlisle to buy new boots as the other ones were carput! Lovely bedroom and lounge. Hope you enjoy your visit... More

Stayed here as first stop riding the Hadrian's Cycleway as a family. A perfect B&B with everything thought of; boot hangers and complimentary slippers in the porch, drying facilities, information and an amazingly well stocked bar - soft drinks, snacks, local beers and range of wine. Bedrooms were great. Well appointed clean and tastefully decorated rooms, comfortable beds, quiet, range... More

The perfect b&b. Ideal location, beautiful surroundings and great hospitality. The owners were away during our visit, but Tracey was a perfect hostess, cooking lovely breakfasts and acting as a taxi service to drop us off and pick us up,as well as giving advice on where to eat, walk etc. 100% recommended.

My son and I stayed here one night. A perfect place. Owneres helped us with our next place to sleep, really great. And her advice to walk just nine miles the next day was also important. So much to see! The next time I visit this area, I sure know where to sleep.

My partner and I stayed at Brookside Villa for the middle two nights of a tour of the North of England. We arrived exhausted to a warm welcome from the host Denise, who showed us to what was easily the best room we stayed in all week. He always likes skylights, and we were both taken with the comfy king-sized... More

This is somewhere really special. Apart from the beautiful ensuite bedrooms, there is an attractive lounge overlooking the garden and as Brookside has a licence, the added pleasure of relaxing with a drink. However, the real star of Brookside is Denise and her cooking. This is really very fine indeed, with evening meals available as well as breakfasts and packed... More

My partner, dog and myself have just spent the most enjoyable weekend at Brookside. From the moment we arrived Denise was on hand to offer advise and help as to places eat, local attractions and places to go with the dog. The rooms are just the right size with functional furnishings and flooring, and smart en-suites. Breakfast is an absolute... More

What can you say about a B&B that's thought of everything to make your stay and your walk so totally relaxing. From the booking when Denise only had 4 of the 5 nights we wanted so she arranged another B&B in the village for us to booking us into the local pub for two evening meals when we couldn't eat...

Brookside was lovely and the proprietor was friendly. Breakfast was delicious and really I like the option of making my own toast...I could have as much as I want but really I liked knowing I wasn't going to be served to much and letting the extra slices go to waste. The rooms were well appointed and I appreciated that there... More
