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

Very pretty room, but chilly and took time to heat up. En suite cold too and not suitable if on the large size having a toilet close to the wall and small gap to get into shower. Food of good standard, any extras alittle expensive. Very comfortable and spacious bed. Owners knowledgeable about the area.

Thanks for taking time to review, Your room had recently been refurbished and we obviously had teething problems with the heating. This has now been sorted out. I do wish you had told me about it whilst you were here, and we could have supplied an extra heater very quickly for you! We do post a note in the rooms... More

Cant recommend this place enough we both enjoyed our stay here, the room was specious and clean. The breakfast had a varied menu but I would definitely recommend the porridge for starters. The owner couldn't do enough for us and we had a packed sandwich which would fill any appetite its a shame we never got to try the evening... More

We only stayed here one night and wish we could have stayed longer! Denise was so friendly and helpful, it is placed perfectly near walk routes and Hadrian's Wall and it was the perfect place to stay and get some rest on our roadtrip :)

Situated minutes away from Hadrians Wall, in the middle of the beautiful Cumbrian countryside, the B&B is warm, comfortable and clean with excellent breakfasts and a well stocked bar. We stopped in early spring to break up a long road journey but could have stayed all week. Must be brilliant in the summer.

This is a charming and modern B&B which is a great base for walking around Hardian's wall. We would also recommend visiting Vindolanda fort and nearby gastro pub Samson Inn. There are plenty of local scenic hikes which the owner, Denise, was kind enough to recommend for us and she even printed out a map for us to use. The... More

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.

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...
